so i came to babysitting today, and, out of the corner of my eye, i see a cup, with a fish net in it. i think "oh god, they got a fish". they 6/7 year old boy had been talking for awhile how he wanted fish. so i immediately run around, looking for a tank. i run all over the house, and can't find one. then i come back in the kitchen, and there, on the counter, is this little THING
. i look in it, and it's split, with 2 fish. one of which is dead, and growing white fungus looking stuff.
i knew this would happen if they let this child have fish. i mean, this "tank" isn't big enough to keep an ant in!!! GRAAAHHHHH!!!
and i talked with the boy, and he "changed the water" yesterday, AND DIDN'T PUT DECHLORINATOR IN IT!!!!!! no wonder the poor thing kicked the bucket!!!!!!
and i just talked to the mother and insisted that she get a larger tank!!!! and heater!!!!! ugh. we'll see if it happens.
i'm off to clean the water (which is white and cloudy.). rant over.
