It all started quite innocently once afternoon when I went to clean the fish bowl.
We don’t have an aquarium, filter, rocks, or even multiple fish. Our setup included one goldfish, a plastic plant, and a 1 gallon bowl.
It takes me 5 minutes to clean the fish habitat, if you can call it that. I have no excuse for why I only clean the fish bowl when it has finally reached a putrid shade of green that makes it almost impossible to see our poor goldfish. Nor do I have an alibi for sous-vide our goldfish by running water, too warm for a fish, into its nice clean bowl. I do apologize for the fact that my son discovered the boiled little fish body floating belly up in its clean bowl. We disposed of the body before his kindergarten aged sister got home with a nice flush.
