After Seven Months

Remember when I complain about the Japanese a cat fish I have in our fish tank? I always asked DH to take it out or give it back to the fish store, but he did not do anything about it. Like I mentioned before I bought other fish to join the cat fish, but all it does was eat the little ones.

In This Life of Ours

Well, since July (after eating the last bought fish) I did not add anymore. It was alone until a week ago. The fish tank was getting very dirty and dark, and I bought a sucker fish (algae eater). I made sure I got the biggest one I can find because I don't want the Cat fish eating it, I wanted the tank clean. After two days the tank was clean again, this algae eater was very hungry, I assume.

A week later, the algae eater moved into the sunken ship inside the tank, where the big cat fish was hiding. I think the algae eater was still cleaning and drove the cat fish out. After a day being out of hiding it fell ill. It started lying right side up, and yesterday it was confirm dead. There was no movement and not gasping for air anymore.

This was the cat fish.
Yes, after 7 months, after a week of putting a new fish, and after two days of having a clean tank, it gave up on me. I should have put a large algae eater a long ago. I know, I'm bad...:(. I wanted to keep all of them, but I can't afford to buy new fish every week just to feed the cat fish. I always feed that thing everyday too. Anyway, I am happy and sad about the whole thing. However, I am happier that I can put some colorful fish in the tank and I'll make sure not to get cat fish again.

I have a continuing program of research (What mother doesn't?) in the laboratory and in the field (normally I would have said indoors and out). I'm working for my Masters, (the whole darned family) and already have five credits (four sons & one daughter, 1 joined the working community, 4 are being educated @ home ). Of course, the job is one of the most demanding in the humanities (any mother care to disagree?), and I often work 14 hours a day (24 is more like it). But the job is more challenging than most run-of-the-mill careers, and the rewards are more of a satisfaction than just money."
