    A few weeks ago I was cleaning my fish tank and accidentally pinned my fishy between the net and the side of the tank. After that, he could not swim upright and stopped eating, so I gave him a hero's funeral this weekend, and then replaced him. This is the new guy. Poll results are non-binding.

    I vote for Deb's suggestion! Blake what does your tank look like? I've been meaning to get another beta fish but my tank is no good.

    I'm going to have to go with Manfred. Although he kind of looks like a Doug.

    If and when he gets a postdoc research fellowship in oceanography, maybe

    Do those sith imperial guards have names? I think he's closer in color to one of them.

    Have the same tank and heater and changed out the filter, too. Also got a suction cup leaf hammocky thing for his tank and dude chills there for *hours* at a time. "I think Ginny Mambo's dead," is a familiar refrain in the house. Spoiler: not dead, just supremely lazy.

    @lavavoom my old fish enjoyed perching on the moss ball and in between the plan stems. He also liked hiding in the cave and would peek out. Very cute. Fingers crossed the new guy figures out the cave.

    That is a nice tank. I was specifically looking for one that is cat proof. I've seen this model before. I want to have fish again!

    I have a cat, but I don't think it proves the tank is cat proof. She lacks curiosity for a cat.

    Pickles my beast cat is especially curious. I don't want to stress out the fish either when four pairs of feline eyes are staring at it. XD
