Adult Guinea Pig
- Apr 20, 2018
My mum is in hospital and unfortunately she might be there a while. She has 2 goldfish (Alice and Lloyd) who she insists on keeping in a tiny tank because she can't lift a bigger tank and also she learned pet keeping in the 1970s and 80s style. Should I bring them to my house and triple their tank size and give them pond plants and proper treated water and stuff? Or might the well meaning change of habitat and water quality be too much of a shock for them? Mum's last fish thrived on neglect then unaccountably dropped dead when my daughter adopted them and tried improve their living conditions... there again my daughter is notoriously unsuccessful with pets (Alice the fish is named after the 8 consecutive hamsters called Alice that my daughter kept at her Gran's house from 1996 to 1999). Fish rescue? Or leave them be and just pop in to feed them and do half water changes?
