Not a Good Day

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

I have a 100 gallon tropical aquarium that has been battling some kind of disease for the past little while. Just when I thought I had it licked, it pops up again. I have spent several hundred dollars trying in vain to resolve the situation, to no avail.

Tonight, after work, I had to do the honorable thing and euthanize all my trops - cut their heads off. It is quick and, as I understand, the least painful but it's not easy.

I had so many beautiful and different tropicals: my favorites were my African Butterfly, my Spotted Topolo Cats, my upsidedown Cat, my Pim Pictus, assorted Gourami (some real beauties) and my Twig Cats. All diseased, all suffering.

Interesting that I bought a chinese cleaver recently - really sharp and efficient.
Had no idea it would be the tool of the Grim Reaper.

I'm done.

I'm sitting here, blogging and drinking a beer, trying to numb the feelings.

My heart can't take any more.

Anyone want to buy an aquarium?

Got lots of stuff to go with it.
