I have fed peas to our goldfish every day since discovering that it was a remedy for floating-upside-down disease. It's actually a swim bladder problem that is common in fancy goldfish. They turn into beachballs with fins. Surely you all recall our discovery of it.
If not, allow me to summarize. Our goldfish Lilly began having buoyancy issues and couldn't remain upright. She was usually found, tired of fighting it and floating upside down. Still breathing, still "swimming", still eating.
I figured she was one for the toilet, but Wolfgang learned of this common problem and the pea remedy. And so the pea feeding began. A good pea snack each afternoon would keep her somewhat upright and able to dive deeper than a couple of inches, as long as it was administered daily. So Every. Single.... yeah okay.
Until last week anyway. I noticed that she was no longer bobbing around the water line. She was swimming around right-side-up and looking like a normal fish. And that's just not normal!
Why the sudden change?! I held back the peas, and still, she swims. Like a normal freaking fish! It's just not right to be normal. Not in this house. All of our
I tried to get a pic to highlight the contrast. That's the newly svelte Lilly in the center with a more bootylicious tankmate shown on the right.
It's like she went out and got a lipo or something.
So this worrisome. She looks happy, yet....
I like big butts and I cannot lie.
