your are really brave.
I probably would have cried during it.
My betta jumped out of its little container (when transfering it) and fell onto the floor.
I almost died. He is all good now. Glad your goldfish is doing good aswell!

That's pretty amazing...I don't think I would have had the courage to attempt something like that. Glad your fish made it, hope he gets better!

Two fish are in a tank. One says to the other "So, how do I drive this thing?"

I hope Moby recovers well. You are so amazing to do the surgery yourself. I can not imagine having to do something like that myself. I was just wondering are their places that do perform surgerys to fishes that people hold dear to them. Amazing post!

Hello Eileen,

There are fish vets in your area I am sure but they're very scarce compared to vets for dogs and other furry pets. Actually, you are luckier than I am because of that. Despite our vast resources for the aquarium hobby, the local hobbyists do not have fish vets to correspond with for problems. I know I tried the help of two local vets to no avail. I was hoping one would assist me for magnification images as diagnosis on some parasites but I guess I will avail rental of microscopes in school laboratories if needed instead of the vets since they would probably charge me a lot for the use of their equipments. I'm not even a vet myself and have no intentions pursuing it despite some relatives insisting on it. Even then, I prefer to focus on fish, not furry pets or other exotics. I do have dogs myself but there's enough number of vets to deal with them.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone.:)

The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
