Nov. 11, 2004 - June 10, 2006
Fergie came from the same pet store as Benny and my first two bettas. I saw her one day when I went to get aquarium supplies, and I instantly fell in love with her. I just adore white goldfish! I tried to resist temptation, but I kept thinking about her all the next day, so I gave in and went to get her. After a quarantine period she moved in with Sammy and Benny on November 21, 2004. She suddenly became very ill and I lost her in the morning of June 2006.
Species: Carassius auratus (a.k.a. goldfish) of the Fantail variety (despite the silly clerk who told me she was an oranda with poor headgrowth! LOL!)
Size: About seven
Gender: Not sure, but I addressed her as female
Hobbies: Slurping very loudly while topfeeding, napping next to Sammy, nibbling algae, following Benny
Dislikes: Being hungry, sudden movements
Diet: Same as the others.
Habitat: 37-gallon tank in the dining room
Tankmates: Sammy and Benny
Nicknames: Princess Fergie
Namesakes: The Duchess of York, Sarah "Fergie" Ferguson. I was just thinking of royal names, since her fins were so pretty and she carries herself so regally. I also wanted to stick to a somewhat unisex name. I thought of Fergie, which is perfect because it has the same "F" and "G" sounds as "Goldfish" does! :)
