I originally bought the the bag o fish because I thought it would be funny, and it would be something fun to do with my cousin. I decided to make a blog about it for three reasons, first was so my cousins could read and see how my fish are doing, second I wanted to document it to show people in the future, third was to help anyone who just got, or was thinking about getting fish, but never owned them before.
I hope this blog can help anyone thinking about getting fish. You cant just buy 12 fish for a dollar, a dollar fifty of food, and expect the fish to live. Contrary to what people might think I did try to keep the fish alive, I always fed them, changed the water, and did whatever I thought I could to make sure they don't die, unlike V.
If anyone would like to make comments on this post, or any other post saying what I did wrong, or what I thought that was stupid I would appreciate that. Anything to make this blog a better resource for people getting, or thinking about getting goldfish.
Throughout this experience I have learned one important thing. It is impossible to keep goldfish alive if you do not know much about fish, and don't know what your doing. That is why goldfish is the perfect animal to get if you want to get out of buying your kid a dog or cat. Here is my advice to any parents looking into goldfish to teach your kid a lesson about getting pets. You tell them if they take good care of the fish, you'll buy a dog, within a week all the fish will die, then when they ask for a dog you say "Sorry Honey, but your just not good at taking care of animals, I don't want dead puppies all around my house, do you?"
