01:00 am: Goodbye, Hydra. I'll sortof miss you.
And with the passing of Tuesday, Hydra, the third & last of my fish is gone. I now have a few hundred dollars worth of useless aquarium stuff occupying valuable piano space in my living room. Any takers?

No, Hydra is not dead. The little black tennis ball is still alive & well & now the largest (& probably most terrified) occupant of a tank in an aquarium store on Madison's west side. Thea & I stopped by on an errand last weekend & Shawn the manager was willing to take her any time. He's on very good terms with Thea & obviously knows what he's doing when it comes to fish so I knew that not only would she (the fish) have a good home there but he would be sure she would go to a good home when she was sold. He was even kind enough to give me $10 in store credit which I will pass along to Thea as I won't need it. It's such a relief to finally have the task done & I can reclaim a part of my life (& my living room) that I've wanted for some time.

Awww, I'm glad Hydra will have a nice life somewhere even if it's not with you. I'm sorry I couldn't take her, but my tank has issues right now, and I've got to deal with the algae infestation and keeping the kitten away from the highly entertaining fish before I even consider adding new occupants. :( If I hear from anyone who needs aquarium stuff, I'll be sure to pass them along to you...meanwhile, maybe consider Craigslist?

Thanks for considering but I just couldn't wait any longer for an answer. Plus, you usually have enough to deal with as it is so this is one less thing for you to worry about.

I'll eventually find a new home for the tank setup as well. It's not as imperative since I only have to clean it one more time & it will be quite a while until I've saved enough for a piano.

Well.......you will save 50 gallons of water, have more living room space (eventually)...but you will not have a fish to keep you company.

Oh well. I am not much for words right now, I guess.

When it comes to company I prefer people to fish. If it must come to a pet I'd rather have one I can interact with. Hydra never did like it when I tried to pet her & attempting to get her attention resulted in her trying to swim through the glass or requests for food.

Amen. A dog would be much better than spiders...
