At the end of the school year, one of my kids brought home another fish. It was part of a project the whole class had been working on, the kids created little ecosystems from soda bottles - cut them, taped them, filled them with water and plants and critters. When the project was finished it came home, which translates to: we gained a fish, a snail and a cricket.
Our house was already home to two beta fish. I didn't really want another fish.
The cricket soon died, the water turned stagnant and we felt very sorry for the fish and the snail. We did the only reasonable thing, we bought another little aquarium and set it up for Bob and his shell toting side-kick.
Just after lunch today, Bob gave birth to eleven baby fish.
