Psycho Fish Meets the Koi
I have had a monumentally lazy day today (well, Saturday actually since it is now 12:24 a.m. Sunday morning). I woke up around 7 a.m. to find Krista and Chad (her boyfriend) in the kitchen making French toast, hash browns and bacon. Yummmm. I went back to the bedroom, curled up on the couch we have in there and started reading. Then I fell asleep over the book and didn't wake up until 12:45 p.m. Amazing. I wandered into the kitchen again, this time making coffee, watched "The Air Up There", showered, dressed and left the house about 4:45 to buy a fish tank.
By way of explanation, Psycho Fish is Krista's goldfish from her junior year of high school. That was FIVE years ago. Psycho Fish is also the Hannibal Lector of the goldfish world. He is very aggressive and routinely knocks out the fish bowl competition not to mention himself on the walls of the tank. The tank we had was starting to leak and realizing that even a Psycho Fish needs a secure home, we headed over to Pet Extreme and brought home a ten gallon tank. After serious discussions with the fresh water fish expert at PE, we also brought home a koi to take up residence with our goldfish. Linda, the expert, said we did not want to purchase a fancy goldfish since they are very mild manner. Since Clark Kent versus Hannibal Lector was not what I had in mind, we went with Plan B, a koi. Since Koi can hold their own with fish bowl bullies, we picked up a koi about three inches long. So far, all is harmonious in fish world. I'm heading out now for Chinese for dinner
