    A very close friend of mine has a 15(?) gallon tank with two goldfish, a feeder fish, and another fish I am not sure of. They recently moved to a new place and since their lease doesn't end until January have decided to leave the fish behind until then. She said I could take the fish if I...

    Other Fish
    Bought a 20g to go with my new 10g yesterday, for the two common goldfish, who definitely needed a bigger tank than the 2.5g they'd been in before. Surprise- my sister, who apparently decided that two goldfish in a 20g was too little, comes home with three new goldfish, a black one, a orange...

    Finless Friends
    Houdini is a very strange cat. While his brother lounges in the window or on a comfy bed, this inquisitive creature would rather be staring at the fish tank. He bats at the fish through the front of the tank, perches on the stool to stare at them up close, and when that's not good enough, he...
