I'm going to add one more...Watching the fish tank. Too bad our nearly 7 year old goldfish named Roger died today. I've had 3 out of 6 fish die in the past two weeks (started with the oldest one (an algae eater) dying first, I just thought maybe it was his time). I've been trying to fix the tank but numerous water changes isn't fixing the problem and I'm afraid there will be more deaths. The one that's obviously been sick for about a week, wasn't the first to die. I hope I can save the tank and the remaining goldfish.
