Cause of the fish illness discovered

I recently brought some Goldfish from the Stafford store, on September 11th, and naturally followed all the advice from the shop assistant, who was a little condescending considering I'd been keeping goldfish for 8 years.

A month on and 2 out of 3 of the new goldfish have died, and all the remaining goldfish are infected with Crustacean parasite, Lernaea (Anchor Worms) - which can only have come from the infected fish, and could only have been the fish from Pets at Home establishment.

I am furious that having trusted a large scale brand my entire tank is now at risk. I will never buy pets from there again. We only went there because the fish guy at Brindley Garden Center was restocking and we were that side of town (usually we go to Fish World at the Reynolds Center)

I've sent this e-mail to Pets @ Home, I'll update if I get a response, but I'd check the health of your tank if you've brought Fish from them recently.

Don't worry, we are treating them now, and they do look a little bit happier, and as ever I'll keep you updated.

Dear Hipsters of Leeds...

I hope you realise just how lucky you are to have The Brudenell Social Club.

I bet you don't.

Signed Pete & Nia (who are having another awesome evening here watching Rev. Peyton and his Big Damn Band)

Update on the fish <><

Well, you know how we brought new fish to liven up the tank about a month ago? Yeah, it didn't go to well.Sudden temperature changes seem to have done in Babbage and poor little Eddington succumbed to the bacterial infection in the tank (the remaining 3 are responding well to treatment) - I think we'll see how we go as we are for a while before we restock. Three is after all the magic number....

Happy Birthday She-Ra

It's only fair to mark this anniversary with a trip down memory lane...

It also means, I have the She-Ra theme tune stuck in my head, that will get me through the day, especially bearing in mind todays lecture is the history of computer games and most of the students were born in 1990/1 (I feel old)
