The aquarium of doom....after much googling and discussion with the fish folks, guppies were purchased x 5. Yes, we were brave and got both boys and girls. Finny and Shark (the boys) are doing well so far. Georgia and Goldie are also swimming right along...however, Gillian (Gill for short)...poor little Gillian, was looking less than perfect this morning before work. Something between truly swimming and floating belly up, and by the end of the day had gone to the great guppy pond in the sky. This was met by many tears and much heartbreak, and a formal guppy burial in the back yard. And much reminiscing about what a smart and cute fish she was....she'd called our tank home for less than 24 hours. So, poor sweet Gill, you were a smart and cute fish and we are very sad to see you go. We'll try really hard not to send your brothers and sisters with you anytime soon.
