| || | I Am Officially Fish Crazy And Broke!
So we were in Wal*Mart, and I went to the back of the store into Aquatics to look at the Filters And Heaters, and I ended up walking out with a Hifin Blackskirt Tetra, and if I do so believe, a female. If this fish in the picture on this website is a male, mine is a female, because its bottom fin is about 4x bigger than this one's. http://www.aqua-fish.net/imgs/fish/b...kirt-tetra.jpg that's what he/she looks like. We'll call it an "it". "It"s name is Strumpy, haha, I'll explain. My friend wanted me to describe the fish to her, so I told her that it had 2 stripes on its back, and one going over both eyes. He also has a 'lump fin' i call it, on his back, and so came Strumpy. The stripeded lump fish. according to my BFFFL, that is his title. Strumpy, the stripeded lump fish. He's acclimating into his quarintene 1gal bowl, without a filter or heater, because he needs to be quarintened untill I know that he isn't sick, or if he lives untill after Christmas... I mean really, he came from Wal*Mart, and the other fish in the tank were practically dying. I mean, to the point of rolling onto their sides and dying and stopping their breathing. And the guy put the fish in a Wal*Mart deli bag! I almost wanted to slap him and say "get fish bags you dork!" but i contained myself and took the fish, and left. "It" spit up a black piece of fuz in the smaller plastic bag I am using for acclimating "it", and i thought he was hungry, so I got the flakes. I gave him a small pinch, and he ate each flake. not one was left. "It" did pass waste, and then "it" spreads his swimming fins(the ones on the sides) at me and swam away to the other side of his bag. "it" seemed disgusted. I wanted to name either Spazzum or Snoopy, but Strumpy kinda won me over. Comments, anyone?
