It just occurred to me... that my fish must be absolutely starving. I cannot even remember the last time I fed them. I really can't. So, like a good little fish-mother... I have been trying to figure out just what to do. I looked all around for my "Fish Feeding for Rainers" book... but it was nowhere to be found. What to do... what to do.... ? I tried google. It went on for pages and pages... but in the end, it was of no help whatsoever. I was at a loss...
So, I went to PetSmart and bought some fish food. I really didn't know what kind to buy, so, of course, I just picked out the box that looked the prettiest, I brought it home, and sprinkled it all over the top edge of the monitor, and hoped that that would do the trick.
I came back about an hour later, and caught my cat, Mollie... sitting there looking sooo innocent... licking the darn fish food off the top of the monitor. The fish food was all gone, and Mollie had just about fallen asleep... with that silly little "kitty-cat-smile" on her lil furry face.
So... I got out the box of fish food again... sprinkled some more on the top, then grabbed Mollie, took her out of the room, and locked the door on her so she couldn't eat the fish food again. Then, about an hour later, back I came... and the food was still there.
I read the instructions on the box, and then called my sister in Cleveland and asked her what do do. She suggested I try putting the monitor on its back... that way I could put the food directly on top of the water. Well... that didn't work either, but, then again, that was from my sister in Cleveland... and...what does she know ?
So, I went back to PetSmart, but this time I took a picture of the fish to show the salesperson... thinking that "special fish" need "special fish food."
Well... that answered my question. The PetSmart sales girl was great. She told me all about some sort of aquarium software that actually ALLOWS you to feed the fish swimming happily inside your monitor screen. Problem is... I cannot find the software.
I have had people tell me they have actually heard about actual software that can allow me to feed my screen saver fish... but I have not been able to find such a thing. The girl at PetSmart "swore" to me that it actually does exist.
Sooo... is anyone out there in Active Rain Land able to help ? My fishies and I would be oh so grateful for any ideas you may have. All suggestions appreciated.
