The Directors at the Institute noticed that Big Fishy seemed lonely in his big aquatic mansion. We decided to get a companion for him. Little Fishy has doubled in size since we acquired him last spring. That’s good because at first, we were afraid Big Fishy would have the little speckled goldfish for dinner. But we eyeballed Big Fishy’s mouth and figured it was too small for the new fish. So, we plopped Little Fishy into the spa and he (or she) remained uneaten.
Both fishies like to circle their home side-by-side. Perhaps this is why Big Fishy has gained so much weight—he is content with his young companion.
The feline study subjects at the Institute now commune, often nose-to-nose, with both fishies.
Here is Big Fishy with his friend Little Fishy:
