Rule Number One: Fish don’t like distilled water.
I bought some distilled water yesterday, thinking it was the right thing to use when replacing and refilling the water in Blinky’s tank.
I was very wrong.
I watched him struggle yesterday and not eat food. I worried when (even before the water change) that he was listless. After the water change, I ignored him as I piled through work.
It’s the first pet I’ve ever had on my own. I had a dog when I was very young (like 3 or 4) and it was taken away after it bit me. At least I think that’s what happened. Now after only a few weeks, this fish is dead. Do I get a new one? Should I get a bigger tank?
