One day I looked into our tank and there he was at the bottom, floundering and looking like breathing was painful. I thought sadly to myself that he wasn't going to make it through the week. Everyone else that saw him thought the same and then he started losing all colour. He was already about three years old and at the end of the day pet fish often die, three years was a good life span but the end was near.
Poor us, waiting everyday to see, is this the day?
That was two years ago.
Other, healthier fish came and went but not Gonzo, he keeps on going. He lies at the bottom of the tank everyday. For those fish keepers out there - its not swim bladder or an infection or any other fish aliment I can find. In fact for about one hour every evening he acts like a regular fish, doing what fish do. He even seems fine with the frogs blindly stepping on him.
Now I just take it that that he is the LAZIEST fish alive. There can't be anything wrong with him as he just keeps living!
Only one conclusion remains, I think my fish is possessed by Mumm-Ra
