You know how I always say I need a reality show?
Oh you don’t…..well I do.
Sometimes, things happen to me and I just can’t even fathom the serendipity of it all.
We bought Dori a solid week ago. Let her get adjusted, beefed her up a little, treated her with garlic to keep her healthy. Waited to write our “new fish” post until we were absolutely-positivly sure that she would live a long and healthy life.
We even kept put her in a tank with only a shrimp and hermit so that she would be safe.
Today I wrote this post.
Today I came home to a hermit crab eating the remains of my Dori.
We did everything right. The water is perfect. No one is picking on her. She’s been eating like a champ. Looked healthy as an ox-fish. Got more attention than all of our other fish combined and believe me they are jealous.
She was our baby fish….and now she is gone.
I couldn’t make this up if I tried, nor would I want to. Tonight I will be drowning in ice cream yelping WHY.
I cursed my baby fish, and although I considered not letting you all in on our little tragedy. You have to take the good with the bad, and in this hobby, death is a part of life.
I just wish it wasn’t.
And why today.
And why that fish.
Ok that is all.
RIP little Dori….I’ll miss you.
Aww! This is too much for pregnancy hormones.
I’m not pregnant…..but I’m so upset. How did I get so attached to a little fishie? Boooo hooo
so sad for ya I know you had high hopes for this baby.
She was supposed to grow old with us 🙁
So sorry cuzzy .. That’s awful.
Yes, yes it does….I feel like I killed her. I’ll never brag about fish again haha
