so yesterday, i had a conversation with my sister in which she described the depressive behaviour of her fish. yes. her fish. it's a betta. and he was lying listlessly on his side on the bottom of his fish bowl in a decidedly depressive manner. highly unfishlike behaviour. (why am i suddenly using british spelling?)
apparently, at my suggestion, she took him in to the bathroom with her while she had a bath. he was so happy to see someone else in water that he's apparently doing well now. she also gave him some kinderegg toys. and placed him in a lighter spot. so he's no longer lying sadly on the bottom of his bowl.
i hope she posts a picture of him here soon.
