My ideal and very ugly children

I was told when I bought goldfish that they are especially messy fish. I think the term “dirty” was thrown in a few times as well. And the first time that Sean ever saw one of our goldfish poop, it was if he was seeing a lunar eclipse for the first time.

“What is that!?” Sean asked, and when I told him it was poop he acted shocked and appalled at the same time. Perhaps this reaction was due to the fact that goldfish poop is as long as the goldfish itself. Thankfully we have a great filtration system, so that their digestive systems don’t get in the way of us loving them incredibly much.

Having goldfish is sort of like having children. They poop just as much, if not more, and they are constantly wanting to be fed. Lucky for us, the fish don’t require a college education and they don’t talk back.

I think perhaps I need to get out of the house more often. Anyone want to hire me to pet sit?
