Meet “Spot.” We rescued him from @Musikfest tonight. While @whatemmagsays was in the bouncy house, I noticed a fish in a bag on the seat behind me. I asked the couple next to me if it was their fish. They said no and explained that a family had come by arguing about who was going to carry the fish they just won around Musikfest the rest of the night and ended up just leaving the bag there. I felt horrible for the poor fish. I told the couple that when my daughter got out of the bouncy house that I would take the fish back to the carnival game where he was from. They suggested I tell Emma I won her a fish while she was in the bouncy house, haha. I wasn’t sure if I wanted a fish at that point. When Emma came over the nice lady next to me said, “Look, your mom won you a fish.” Oh boy. I said, “No, Emma, I didn’t win you a fish. I’m not sure if I want to keep a fish. Some people came by and argued about carrying him around all night and just left him here. Let’s go take him back to the fish place.” She agreed. When we got there and explained what happened, the carnival operator asked if Emma would like to keep him. After some deliberation, I agreed to take the fish home if Emma agreed to leave Musikfest so we could get him a proper home. So, we carried spot back to our car and stopped at Petco on the way home with just enough time before they closed to learn about all the supplies we needed for him and how to set it up when we got home. The man at Petco thanked us up and down for rescuing poor Spot. He said the people that charge $15 to win a 15 cent fish at carnivals should be “lined up against a wall.” He said I wouldn’t believe how many people had come into his store that week after winning fish at Musikfest. Maybe we shouldn’t be giving away live animals as prizes at carnivals?? Just a thought. 

Being a fish owner is not something I’d ever thought I’d do. The aquarium had about 7 parts and 13 steps for assembly. I had to rinse everything with hot water, aquarium rocks and castle included, fill the tank half way, treat the water to remove the chlorine, set Spot in bag in the water to acclimate to the same temperature, wait 5 minutes, cut a slit in the bag to exchange some of the water to get him further used to it for a few minutes and then increase the slit so he could come out. That part about gave me a heart attack. Even though I cut a generous slit in the bag, he still kept swimming into the other part of the bag. I was so afraid he was going to get hurt or die in this process. I don’t recall the last time I was that panicked or nerve-racked. Finally I ripped the bag open more and pushed it down into the water more and Spot was able to swim out into his tank. He seems to finally be adjusted now, a couple hours later. I feel bad for this poor animal. I still need to research how (much) to feed him. The instructions on the tetra flakes just say, “feed your fish about as much as he can eat in a few minutes.” Um… I think I’ll be watching a few YouTube videos tonight. But darn, we need to all be more responsible for the other beings that live on this planet. Between Musikfest inviting this fish-prize game at their fest, the carnival owners for participating in live-animal prize giving and the people who won the fish and left it on the chair… my heart still aches with stress over this and the worry for the life of this little addition to our household.
