So, my steam from wanting to decorate my house has died down. Another thing that died? Our poor little Betta fish. She was so social and lively and happy to see us! We killed her by overfeeding her.
PET STORE EMPLOYEE: You only have to feed her 2-3 pellets a day.
US: Yeah, right...Look at her! She's so excited to eat! And she chompa-chompas the pellets like PacMan! She should totally eat more than 2-3 pellets a day. Let's give her 6-8 pellets twice a day! That pet store guy is so cruel starving these fish!!

poor fish. RIP girl.
The thing that put her over the edge was the blood worms I purchased for her...as a treat. Poor thing. She couldn't even float to the top when she died. Just filled with pellets and fish poo. And the thing that ticked me off (as though I have the right to be mad...fish killer!) was that last weekend, we bought her a big tank (2.5 gallons) with a filter and all that jazz. $65 on a $2 fish!! Anyway, I am taking my sad Curly-Toes to the pet store to get more fish (to make use of the new tank...and to console his hurt heart). And this time, I am putting them on a strict diet!!
