...nothing up my sleeve. Presto!

Last night, I went home. I brooded in front of the tank. I looked at it at a variety of angles. I closely examined the gravel substrate, seeing if I can find a hole, a recently burrowed hole, a little fishy head or tail sticking out.

Nothing. Absolutely nothing.

eisa and I sat on the couch watching the latest Harry Potter movie, while I occassionally leered at my tank in a brooding fashion.

Sometimes I would curse.

This morning, I woke up, and went about my business. I was finishing buttoning my shirt, the light on in my apartment, the fish tank light off. And in the corner of my eye, I saw something. I slowly turned... my eyes drew its gaze to the water... and...

There was the little fucker waving hi to be.

THE BASTARD!!! He's still in the tank!

I have no idea where he was, but I saw him as clear as day. A part of me is really worried... after all, this time, I had no witnesses. What if I never see him again? What if no one does? What if the fish I saw this morning was nothing more than a figment of my imagination? Maybe I'm going crazy!!!!

Then there is the other part to this sad tale. I bought a $20 fish... to only see him in the dark.

Proof that they exist.

I think I figured out what kind of fish this interdimensional traveler is.

Again, bad fish owner for not doing research before hand. The description on loaches.com includes "This is a rather shy and secretive loach that likes to come into full light only while feeding, and likes to live singly. It prefers small pebbles or sand to burrow in."

It forgot to mention that it comes with its own improbability drive, similar to that of the Heart of Gold. I expect tomorrow morning it will have a Bermuda shirt on from its travels today. The shirt will be underneath his ninja costume, of course.
