My rural life gets pretty wildly exciting. Sometimes I count the number of times the fly on my hand raises and lowers it’s wings.
I do have the dogs or I would commit Seppuku for the sheer entertainment value.
I am caring for a Betta for a friend. Bettas are colorful interesting tropical fish also called Siamese Fighting fish or at least in my youth they were.
I was a huge fish nerd in my teens. I started with a Betta and got carried away buying books and expanding into the hobby. I still know the weight of a gallon of water varies according to it’s temperature and how to cure a case of “Ich”. I was the only kid on the block with a subscription to Tropical Fish Hobbyist magazine…
It is all coming back to me having a fish in the house.
I have an itsy bitsy aquarium of my own on order. I should have paid down medical bills faster but darn it, I need a small treat. So a 2.6 gallon aquarium of my own is on the way. Room for a Betta and a VERY few other compatible tank mates.
