I am sorry. I am sorry that over the years many of you have come and gone in my tank of death.
I tried, really I did. Two guppies have recently joined the rest of you in fishy heaven, but that is it.
I am determined to make this work. I love all animals, and while chances are I will never love fish as much as I love my cat and dog, I still care for you.
It seems as though I may have found a way to stop the unnecessary deaths. Apparently, even-though I asked many "fish experts" - I was missing a key element. While you don't REQUIRE an air pump, well fish need it. I think I was honestly sucking the life out of you by not providing enough air.
This is all still to be proven. But I did the $10 investment, and already there seems to be a better vibe in the tank. Could it be this simple?
The lady at the fish store said chances are, I had nothing to do with the guppy deaths. They could both have been sick when I bought them, especially since they died so quickly when others are surviving.
So, live on my lucky seven. I do hope that going forward this will be known as the Tank of Life.
And Lisa, I'm not a fish killer. Really, they die on their own accord.
