1000 days of constipation...and peas.

Who knew fish could get constipated?? Not me! I was feelin pretty bad about Bubbles today and decided to google a treatment for floating upside down. I knew it had something to do with his swim bladder, but was never really able to find an explination and the treatments never worked. Today, though, I happenned upon a site that said he could be constipated and to feed him peas! WHAT?! Feed my goldfish Peas?! And so I did. Tonight, I squished a pea into the tank and he ate it!!??!!! COOL! Even cooler is that tonight, his belly isn't as fat and he's swimming like a normal fish!! Whoda thunk?! I think it's awesome that he's as close to normal as he has been in 3 years...but Man I suck as a fish owner...cuz I left the poor guy all bunged up for over 1000 days! Yeesh! Sorry little guy! :(
