Okay so I turned 20 last month.
For my birthday my best friend brought round a Siamese Fighting Fish for my present.
I thought that was nice.
This is the bit that is not nice......
So the fish bowl she gave me is like 10 centimetres in diameter. So Tiny.
I know that they can survive in Puddles and shoe prints in Thailand. The pet stores keep telling me that.
Just because they can survive like that doesn't mean that they enjoy it!
The second (and more cruel) thing is that she was told i would need to keep it in the warmest part of my house.
The problem...my house is always so cold.
I work from 9-5 so I am never really home to have the heater on.
My fish is supposed to be at 17 degrees to 28 degrees. In reality, it is probably just over 10 degrees!
I think my lil fishy is freezing.
I am at work now and left a light globe on over it to try and heat the bowl up. I think he likes that. I am scared my place will be on fire when I get home.
I have also been feeding it dried bloodworm's.
It ate some on the first day i got him but not on the second day (yesterday). I hope he has eaten by the time I get home.
Lastly, I know this was supposed to be a present but it has been causing me hell as I am so worried about it.
Could someone please have a chat with me about this as I am so worried.
Also, I know I will end up spending money on this fishy (so not fair, I am so broke as it is)!!!!
