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.

Fergie's Stats:
Age:  I don't know when she was born, but she lived with me from Thursday, November 11, 2004, to June 10, 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!  :)
