Well, since we've got an animal forum, I thought I'd tell you about the fifth goldfish the children got almost 2 weeks ago.
I went to feed them yesterday, and it was floating on it's side at the top of the water. The other 4 (3 of which we've had for 5 years, the other for 4 years) are all fine. I told the children when they got home from school, I still left it in the water, and Christine took it out to bury it. I said to flush it down the toilet, but she wants it buried. We know it's the new fish, as it is alot smaller than the others.

Aww that's a shame hun. I've only ever had goldfish as pets when I was little & won them from fairs. They never lived for long though. I didn't know they could love for 5 years & more, I thought they only lasted a couple of years at most - shows how much I know!

I hope the kids weren't too upset x

:( I never manage to keep goldfish for long, I'd love to know what I do wrong as I feel like a fish murderer! Apart from the suicidal one that jumped out of the tank and was found on the carpet... that one wasn't my fault :shock:

Not sure what you put in the water there Em, but he obviously didn't like it! :lol:

As sad as it is that you have lost the 5th fish Audrey, KUDOS for keeping the first four alive for so long!!!! I tried for at least 10 months to keep some goldfish for my little brother, but they all kept dying! We went through about 15, neither one lasted longer than 3 months! :?
