So this picture is not my gold fish. I have 2 plus my bowl is nicer. I just don't want to take pictures of them right now. They are kinda freaked out.
So I bought 2 goldfish yesterday. A day earlier I had bought a 2 gallon bowl, some pebbles and a plastic plant, plus this rock like thingy with a hole in it.
Anyway, the ride back from the store must have been tough for them. I have taken care of fish before, so I was aware of some of the issues that they might have had. I made sure the water temperature was the same as the water they came in. Plus I made sure the possible Chlorine in the bowl was nullified. (I used tap water)
So for the first day, they pretty much stuck to the bottom close to the pebbles. Obviously scared. I felt bad. But i knew I should just leave them alone. Any noise, whether it be on the table or far away would frighten them. So I put them in a place where I seldom go to.
Anyway, they did eat the food. But they do it ever so carefully. Slowly creeping up to the surface. It took them 10 mins to float up that 3 inches and have the guts to eat the flakes. I was happy though. I like them. One is bloody frisky and is always freaking out and playing with her reflection. She is the common goldfish.
The other is really chill and quiet. I think that is the smarter one. Anyway.
so they have survived 24 hours.
I know some animal lovers amongst you will urge me to get an aquarioum and more space. I am planning on that very soon....
