We're terrible fish owners! There, I've said it. Let's just say for reasons unknown, we have gone through a number of fish. Before the big power outage of 2012, Emma had two great fish and a snail that were going strong. Josh's fish, on the other hand, kept going belly up but he didn't really notice so it wasn't such a big deal. Since we restocked after the outage, the tides have turned and it is now Emma's fish that we can't keep alive. Of the two pictured below, one was gone within a couple of days. The other is still going strong and after several weeks, we decided to get one more. This one lasted all of two nights. Cue the tears again although through the tears, Emma tossed out one little nugget of wisdom when she said "I don't think I should get another fish."
