That's sorta what happened with me.
I bought a box of fish eggs at my state fair 9/11/10, hatched them, SOOO CUTE!! (My Best Fish Friend BFF), Anyway, one by one, they died. So I got a second box for free, same thing happened, about two months later? No fish. So I go out, buy one fish. BENNY!!! Then I went back to petco, got him three goldfish. I had noo Idea that bettas and goldies couldn't go together for multi-reasons. Anyway, I then bought a few more goldies. they all died, so I bought LeRoy (lord bless this fish), who just passed. :( Due to gil issues and dropsy....
Anyway, I sorta just spun outta control after Leroy... I bought 8 more fish.... And I now have nine. :/
I love them all, but it's soo very strange to say 9, not 10....
