Wow. I would have died. I legit would have died if my mom said I couldn't have him. I'd roll over, (of course flailing my body onto the floor first) and pound my fists on the ground. Then if she still didn't give in, I'd grab him, throw 8.99 on the counter and R U N.
Do you own the fish in your avatar/profile picture? HE'S AMAZING OMG. I name most of my fish Christmas things & I'd have a ball naming that beautiful dark green and red boy xD I wish I could find one like that.
