So I bought The Doorman on Sunday and he had gone to the big fishbowl in the sky by the time I got home last night. I described his symptoms to a coworker and she diagnosed him as having "ick" and that I should get some "ick medicine". I will get the ick medicine before I get another fish because it was so pitiful to have to dip his little body out of the bowl and dispose of it. I didn't even have time to get to know him so I could be sad instead of embarrassed. We've determined that it was probably a water issue despite the conditioning tablets I used that were supposed to take care of that. I think I'll have to find somewhere to place the bowl that keeps it warmer too. Maybe I'll try a fish at work instead of at home and see if I have more success. I have a petsitting job coming up, so I'll wait until after that to try fish husbandry again.
