So if you happened to read my Friday’s Letter post, you will know that my fish was acting all depressed, and like he was dying. And in my letter to him I kindly asked him to start acting like his normal feisty self, unless he was actually dying.
And if you read this blog regularly then you know I talk about my fish quite often. How I got him for my birthday shortly after I moved to Texas. How much he has traveled with how busy I am. So you would know I like my fish a great deal.
Well, I am sad to announce that on Friday I came home to a very dead fish. :(. Super bummer. Because a. I really liked him and b. dead fish seriously gross me out. So after a pep-talk from my mom and a pep-talk from myself I quickly poured him into the toilet and flushed. And he must have died shortly after I came home on lunch to feed him on Thursday, because he stunk really bad already. So I sprayed a bunch of febreeze and turned on the fan and closed the door to get rid of the smell. I also quickly washed out the fish bowl so it wouldn’t smell either.
I’m still getting used to walking by an empty fish bowl. Because for reals, every time I would walk by him I would either stop and talk to him (I know I’m weird since I talk to my fish) or I would just look at him as I was walking by. And now it’s just a bowl with his toy in it and no water. 😦
So if any of you need betta fish food, either the flakes or the pellets let me know. I have 2 probably more than 3/4 full little containers of the flakes (I had one from when I got him, got the other one from a friend when her fish died, and then probably a little less than a year ago I stopped using the flakes and switched to the pellets because he liked them better), and I have a container of the pellets that is only missing 8 little pellets since I just bought it Tuesday. So if you want it let me know and I’ll send it on over to you! (Also if any of you live where I live and would like the bowl, let me know and I’ll bring it to you, but since it’s glass I can’t mail it anywhere)
