This was in August. We had visited a friend's house who had a goldfish. Jake loved it, so I thought "Hey! Let's get a fish!" having obviously forgotten the lack-of-success that I've had with fish in my life. But I did it anyway.
He loved watching it while he ate.
It was just a plain ol' 29 cent goldfish from Petsmart.
For real. Jake loved it.
Well it never ate any of the food we gave it and it died in five days. I tried again a few weeks later and that one died in two days. So I quit fish.

We have a beta fish - it is more of an investment but really, the thing won't die. Ever. It has gone w/o food, moved a couple of times, been severely mistreated and still continues on. You get the idea - something to consider.
