not just a fish

only THE COOLEST FISH IN THE WHOLE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!!!!

i have to blog about my fish. fine, he's blake's fish- but he is SO my fish. i feed him. i change the damn water. i clean the fucking tank that is so heavy i practically break my back carrying it to the bathroom. see- MY FISH! *sighs*

dodger. that's his name. he is the biggest freaking goldfish ever! he keeps growing and it cracks me up. it's kind of gross that he is that big, but it's funny too. he sucks up the rocks at the bottom of the tank and then he drops them, and they make this big crash sound! can fish hear? cause i think that's why he does it. for attention. look at me! look at me! *drops rocks*

know what else he does? he likes to jump. like seriously. if there was no top on the tank, i swear he'd jump out of the damn thing! whenever i clean the tank, i put dodger (and sprinkles- the other large, but not even close to as cool, fish) into a bucket. suddenly, i will hear these ridiculous large splashes! when i turn around, I CAN SEE DODGER IN THE AIR! the freaking fish is above the top of the bucket! he's crazy. freaking insane. but i love it!

i have the coolest fish in the universe! someone get my clown fish an agent! :)
you have to see how big he is in comparison to the size of the tank (ps, it's a 5 gallon tank)!

My cat's name is GIANT. Can he meet Dodger?

Dude. That's the biggest freaking goldfish I have ever, ever seen.

And my friend's father can keep them alive for like 10 years - he just had two die that he bought at Petsmart for $2 each about 10 years ago. He's the fish master. Crazy.

When I was in college I had a friend who had a fish that spit rocks. We used to love watching it do that when we were drunk, but I think it would have been funny not drunk too. That is one big fish you have!

This is exactly why I don't get a fish...all that hard work. I already have a bunny cage to clean and that's a total pain in the ass. So no fish for me!

Melissa said...

DUde, that fish is huge. What are you feeding him, smaller fish?

That tank is really clean Ster. This is why we aren't having things in tanks or cages at my house. I refuse to clean them, but I also refuse for them to not be cleaned. My poor kids are going to go through life animal-less.

Fun post! Love Dodger's self-imposed activities!

I can't believe you can keep a goldfish alive for so long. THAT is insane. How is he liking northern California? Seems kind of out of place with a name like Dodger. Maybe you should change his name to Giant now.

Suebob said...

That is one huge fish.

Elizabeth said...

What you said about it being your fish-yeah. Like when we agreed to take in my MIL's dog, and everyone agreed they would help walk him, and feed him, and clean up after him. Guess who does all of that? That is MY dog.

Of Course, Jennster's fish would be fun!

Impressive looking, I must say.

Girl, what's with the big ass fish? Damn.

You crack me up! That is one big mutha of a fish - & btw, I had to clean my, er, McRae's tank last night so I feel your pain woman!!! (this time, I cheated and bought all new rocks though, so I wouldn't have to rinse the bejeezus outta the old ones)!

That is HUGE. You could make a meal out of him. Heehee. I think that fish has a great life at your house. He has owners who have a thorough appreciation for his uniqueness!

Nicola said...

We used to have fish wen I was little, we used to get them free with coupons from the supermarket till receipts, a couple got really huge too, although yours is definately SuperFish! they usually only grow till they fit the tank, we had a much bigger tank. One time one of ours jumped out of the tank, must have been just as we got home, cos when we walked in the door the dog went over there and picked something up and kinda started chewing on it, then we realised it was the fish, so we got it out of her mouth and put it in the tank, it lived for another few years, crazy huh?!

Kentucky Girl said...

hehe...that's cute. :D

Becky said...

dude that is also a LOUD fish. when we were sleeping in there we could hear him eating the rocks and stuff lol. he was cute.

Kevin Charnas said...

Umm...yeah...excuse me, Whack job? Yeah...you. That fish needs a bigger tank. First you abuse chocolate ice cream, then you stuff a fish into a tank the size of a martini glass.

I'm so driving up there to kick your ass.

kisses, baby.

spidey said...

He is *almost* as cool as Dodger the dog!

I looooooove your Halloween skin.

Meg said...

Holy shit that's a big fish!

denise said...

I hear if you get a bigger tank he'll just keep growing. And then you can keep him in the bathtub and sell admission tickets to the local neighborhood kids. The fish will make you rich ;)

Angry Dad said...

That does look like a pretty cool fish!

Sammy would eat Dodger. he's all about chasing and catching small, flying objects.

i LOVE goldfish. i secretly want a goldfish pond in my backyard. i've always wanted one, ever since i was a kid. maybe it's because i'm a pisces.
