Bad News First?
I lost Aslan a few days ago. He needed to go, but it was painful watching him die :/ Dropsy sucks! He was a good fish.
More bad news; Today I was at Walmart and I wandered over to the fishy section and found this poor guy
I doubt my bringing him home could have done anything. He wasn't really moving at all. It was pretty ridiculous. I tried to find an employee in the pet section to ask them why it was ok to keep a fish in those conditions but I couldn't find anyone. So, of course, I left a note on the poor kiddo's container that said how disgusting this is and how terrible it is to put a fish through that. I doubt he made it through the afternoon. :/
Okay. For the good news. I couldn't help myself from rescuing a couple of other guys that at least looked rescue-able (word?). It's impossible to not bring one home if you have room for it and if I could have taken them all I would have.
The lighter of the two is much spunkier than the red. I hope they both make it. They are being acclimated to the new tank now so as soon as I have them in I'll take some pictures. I'm very interested in tracking their color changes if it happens.
