Pets are family, too!

It was a sad day for pets in my house yesterday. I woke up in the morning to find my 5 inch Oscar, Madison, out of the tank in the middle of my family room floor :( He had jumped so hard he knocked the top into the tank and jumped out. His tankmate, another 5 inch Oscar, Meyer, was pinned under the tank and stunned for most of the day, hardly moving. He seems to be fine now.

We have two dogs, several hamsters and I have 3 aquariums of fish. One with fancy goldfish, one with the oscars and another trpoical tank with cichlids and bala sharks.

Late last night my daughter came downstairs to tell me that her hamster had died. We are all animal lovers in my family. A very sad day, indeed.

What a pretty fish. I bet his fish friend is missing him. I had a goldfish once that stayed by another goldfish that was sick until it passed on. I tried to get the fish well, but couldn't. How heartbreaking.
