This morning came with tragic news. Alli's goldfish "Lettuce" died.
Last night we took a family trip to Petco, where we bought a few aquarium supplies. We returned home and gave the fish tank a good spring cleaning. When we put the filter back on the tank, the intake cover was accidentally left off... and that, my friends, is what did the fish in.
Poor Alli was saddened by the loss of her pet fish. She didn't cry, but she appeared to be on the brink of tears and was unusually quiet. A brief funeral service was held in the bathroom, and then Andy flushed the little fish.
We will be returning to Petco today to adopt another fish... and cheer up a little girl.
