Photo Hunt - Gross

Dirty Fishy water is Gross...amazingly enough the fishy has survived for almost five years. Probably because I don't wait for the girls to clean his bowl anymore...

Does it get smelly and slimy too. Gross. Time for a clean-out. Happy weekend.

tnchick said...

I agree, dirty fish water is gross... but i think any dirty water is... like in a sink, etc. Ick.

Hope lots of folks stop in to see your fish and say hello! =) Why? I made you site of the day this week! =)

Teena said...

That's one tough fish!

Mine's up too :)

Barbara H. said...

Ew! We had fish years ago, and I remember how smelly the bowl could get.

kooky kay said...

Poor fishy fishy ... but seems he's healthy enough ... just the right amount of bacteria in the water maybe?

Oh, we just exited the goldfish phase, thank God! Matthew had a big ol' fish and it just wouldn't die no matter how hard BigBob tried to kill it. He pinched off his oxygen tube a few times (accidentally), dropped him on the kitchen floor one . . .that fish was about 9 years old when he finally started laying on the bottom of the tank and when Matthew went back to school after Xmas break, BigBob performed fish euthanasia followed by a burial at sea (translation: flush). I gave the tank to one of the secretaries at work. So glad to be rid of it!

Mine is posted!

Lisa Renee said...

Thanks tnchick - I'm very flattered.

:-)

Pamela said...

Wow! Five years is incredibly long for a little gold fish! Poor little guy, thank goodness you look out for him! lol

meeyauw said...

I totally agree: it is gross. Which is one reason I don't like having fish (so I don't' have fish LOL)! Yet I'll clean litter boxes. Go figure.

Lisa Renee said...

I thought about the litter box...but then thought that would be more over the top gross than Mr. Fishy.

:-)

Lux said...

Yeah, that looks pretty gross - except the fishy looks enticing!

Lisa Renee said...

My cats agree with you Lux, Mr. Fishy has lived thru some close calls.
;-)

Rose said...

Shoshana said...

I have same problem. I'm definitely posting the tank picture tomorrow.

superkimbo said...

Oh that poor little fishy... He looks so sad at the bottom of the bowl there.

pat said...

Congrats on being the site of the week!

Yes, dirty fish bowls are gross. I have had my share of those with my children as well.

Danella said...

Congrats on SOD!

Yep, dirty fish water is definitely gross!

Mine is up too.

PastorMac's Ann said...

I guess it's bad when you can barely see the fish swimming around. Yuck.

Good choice for The Hunt.

Gattina said...

Poor little fish, it's not his fault that he has to swim in that dirty water ! Have fun to clean it out ! lol !

Connie said...

Dirty fish water is really gross. Every time you clean it the darn fishy messes is up even faster!

Great photo for today's theme

Take care,
Connie
My photo is up.

Congrats on being Hunter´s site of the day! I agree, dirty fish water is gross... that´s why I don´t have an aquarium =)

srp said...

Congratulations on being the site of the day.
Not only does the fish tank water get cloudy and smelly at times, but that awful debris that is so hard to rinse off the rocks in the bottom and those floating fish that don't make it. I had a small tank in my office for a while and it was so hard to clean. The goldfish lived for five years? That is a much better record with them than I ever had.

kate said...

gosh that is one unhappy looking fish! hope he lives! loling

cheers!Kate

Debbie said...

Your fish is luckier than my sons! His finally gave it up and float for a few days before the boy noticed!

Come visit and gross out on my fly! Have a super Saturday!

Write From Karen said...

We can NOT keep fish. My husband kills them each time.

"Honey. You CAN'T clean their rocks with bleach."

"But they're dirty."

*sigh* Men. lol

Congrats on being site of the day!

bbsgirl said...

dirty fish bowls are realy gross...

Mine's up too.

preckie said...

cleaning fish tanks is one of the reasons why i hate fish as pets... it's good for you that your fish lasted that long. another reason why i dont like fish as pets is because they die quickly, a few months after you bought them.

Janet said...

hmmm...I'm so glad I only have dogs :-) Congrats on being site of the day!

Eagles Wings said...

oh yeah that is pretty gross and slimy too! Thanks for stopping by my post.
Happy Saturday

on the Rock said...

Poor fishy!

Coll said...

I had goldfish as a kid and honestly.. my fish bowl often looked this way. Poor little fishes.

Michelle said...

Eww gross fish water! My brother once had a gold fish that lived for years and he rarely cleaned the tank! Poor thing actually died shortly after a cleaning! I think is was so used to the dirty water the clean water killed it! I've got my first SPH up. Check it out!

Holly said...

I feel your pain! I finally started, mine is HERE

Desert Diva said...

Cleaning fish water is a gross job. Welcome to the Photo Hunt!

Linda said...

You're right, it even smells gross if I remember correctly!

Congrats on being picked site of the day, too!

Biker Betty said...

Have a great weekend,
Biker Betty :)

Pato & Pearl said...

abe-hap said...

Heather said...

Wow, looks like the water in my fishtank, I REALLY need to clean it tomorrow. Thanks for reminding me! :) Mine is up too.

Frances said...

I used to keep jumbo goldfish, and could they make a jumbo mess. Congrats on being site of the day.

Jane said...

Glad you are in charge of the bowl now!

roman said...

I try not to remember what it takes to clean the bowl. It's too bad that we were unable to snap a shot of the stones that we have in it now, especially when we cleaned it out last month - now that was gross.
:)

Larry said...

Goldfish are extremely difficult to keep their water clean -- guppies are smaller but are unfortunately become cannibals when they have babies --which is almost as gross.

Cherrie said...

I know what you are talking about. I got my girls some grow a frogs. Boy dose it ever get gross. Nice picture
