My fish. My babies.

I'm sure I'm not the only fish 'mommy'. :) Haha. But it does make me laugh when people give me the 'stare' when I refer to my babies as my babies.
But when one is sick? I feel like I'm a killer. They don't die or anything. But it's like.... isn't a mom's job to protect her kids? And I'm their mommy. And when they are sick, and look at me with those big eyes (sometimes, quite literally) when I feed them... My heart just melts for my darlings.
But when they are happy! Or when my little men make bubblenests! And I just get all giddy and super proud. I want to go buy a bumper sticker: 'proud parent of a bubble-nest-builder'.
And I know I'm a dork! BUT WHO CARES?!
Because I don't! I love my little fish!!!
-Benny -LeRoy -Sykes -Nick -Lady -Rosie -Cindy (and last BUT NOT LEAST!) -Luna!!!

I feel the same way. I don't call them my babies, but they are My Boys! And when they are sick or have torn fins, I feel horrible. My boyfriend things I'm crazy, but he is starting to pick up the fish bug, too!

Haha no way! I do the same thing with my Benny. He plays with my finger when I'm fish-ing (my term for doing anything fish related).

I love horses very very much, and the boyfriend would always state "I don't like horses, they're your thing" etc, but he would always go to shows with me and watch me ride. Then I would catch him petting horses and giving them treats when he thought I wasn't looking.

Well the same happened with the fish. He stated he didn't like them and wouldn't take care of them but when I was living with him temporarily while in between jobs and looking for my own place, I would come home to clean tanks and happy fish. And he would say he "felt bad" for them and cleaned them. But even though he said he didn't like them and would roll his eyes when I whined about torn fins or got worried over a little gilled friend, I never let it get to me. Because he knows they are important to me and I love them.

Plus, whenever he comes over, the first thing he asks when he walks in the door is, "Did you feed them?" And then proceeds to feed them six pellets each, haha.
