    I know it's totally inappropriate, but I smiled that you call your goldfish "mate"

    shaf - no, not yet. He's sort of on his side looking sad and sick :(

    tree - oh no! Squishy is okay.

    jay - lol, well when I do kissy kissy faces at the bowl he (usually) comes right up and does kissy faces back so that counts as a mate!

    Don't fish *always* do "kissy faces" And it just seemed so typically Aussie you even call your fish "mate". Not that I can laugh, everyone here gets called mate too -- or "me old mate" if I'm feeling cockney that day

    lol - I'm actually not a big "mate" user - but I buckle for pets and kids. go figure.

    And NO, fish don't make kissy faces at just anyone. case in point - squishy face turns her (?) back and swims away when I try to make kissy faces at her.

    Moo Moo Head died today :( I feel so sad.

    Aww, *hugs* Mez. Are your fish goldfish though? Cuz I read that goldfish aren't supposed to be in fish bowls. Goldfish can grow larger, so a bowl isn't very conducive and they're likely to die after a while. They don't show any kind of distress though, because they're a 'hardy' fish. Poor sweet little things. :(

    I've been reading up on fish because I want to set up the ubiquitous 'fish in a bowl of plants'. Some kinda fish in a bowl of aquatic plants. It's ubiquitous but it's pretty. I was thinking of goldfish but, yeah, goldfish aren't supposed to be bowls. Betta (Siamese fighting fish) are more suited to bowls. They don't need aeration cuz they have a special gill-type thing called labyrinth, and they come up to the surface of the water to breathe. Betta are gorgeous fish too, but they're horribly bad-tempered and fight with one another (hence their name) so there can't be more than one betta in a bowl.

    Anyway, I've realised that it's too much work having to care for two living things at the same time (plant and fish), what with the water change and trimming of roots and all. I may just decide to keep either one, not both. Or I may just keep both - in my head... That way, everything will be fine and dandy for as long as I like. Heh.

    I used to have several fish, which turned into one slightly larger fish...but I think he became so lonely and guilt stricken he eventually killed himself. Ona positive note, this has never happened to any of my houseplants!

    well moo moo was a goldfish :(

    your plans sound pretty cool (and you sound like an expert on fish). I blame bloody Gigantor on my little fishy adventures lately. Before him I pretty much didn't think of fish at all (except in my belly).

    bionicb - haha I used to have a gigantic fish that ate the other fish in the tank. He never got the guilts about it though - I think he was a bit psychotic. He was awesome.
