The three fish I won at the fair died, as is the usual course of things, within a week of my winning them.
But now! Now I have a betta. His name is Montu, he is very pretty and I will keep him alive. Montu is the Eqyptian god of war, and a betta is a fighting fish, so that means the odds are good that he’ll try to live, right?
Montu is dead. I have no idea why. My next attempt will not be for awhile yet.
