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.
