So my boys were building a tent in there room yesterday. Andrew thought it would be a good idea to use the aquarium to hold the end of the blanket down. Shane pulled the blanket and guess what happened next?????
That's right - splash. All over the bedroom carpet and the blankets. Then he starts crying cause the fish is dead. (It's a beta) Poor fish is still in the bowl in about a teaspoon of water. We rescue the fish and clean up the water - crisis averted. Not sure if the fish will still be alive today or not.
Oh how traumatic! When I was a kid one of my stepfathers had a big 100 gallon tank or something. I did like laying on the couch and watching the fish swim around. But then I noticed that the fish would try to commit suicide! They would jump out of the tank! Onto the couch! This was not ok.
We had a TON of fish for a while. Oscars tend to commit suicide more than any other fish, and mostly the albino ones at that. Our last tank before we completely converted to reptiles was a 75, and that one got emptied when one of the girls crawled into it lol.
Yeah I had fish for awhile but Will was constantly getting into the tank every chance he could get so I "donated" to my college age sister so she could have fish in her dorm room. She loves it but I do miss having fish around to watch but it wasn't worth the hassle of trying to keep toddlers out.
