Hello, my name is Erin and I am a fish addict

I am not an impulse buyer. Even when I have gift cards it takes me months to figure out what to buy. However, fish is a whole different story. Friday I made my second! impulse fish buy. The first one, was of course the late, great, Britney Chava Wetzel Timberlake IV (heiresss to the Wetzel Pretzel fortune) who was purchased at a petstore when I was there getting something for my iguana (God bless Iggy). On my defense, the pet store lady did give us her for free. Anyway, on Friday I had a whole bunch of errands to run and I was going to check the 99 cent store to see if they had part of my costume, but alas the one in the Hackensack by my gym is closed so I drove around the parking lot and saw the petstore which reminded me I wanted to get Lola a bone to chew on. I found the bone and as I'm waiting to pay I saw a Beta fish who unlike his compadres had no beautiful colors, he was just peach (like Shelby, who much like her namesake character in Steel Magnolias, is dead). I just knew I could not leave him in that pet store to die an ugly, fish death. Thus, I now have a new fish named Salem (somewhat halloweeny/he's salmon colored/Days takes place in Salem which was on when I got him home). However, Salem has yet to eat anything, which concerns me. Both Shelby and Britney ate fine from the day they came home. And as we all know Britney in fact was TOO good an eater, since on her death certificate her cause of death is "drowning by lack of ability to reach surface due to obesity", which in all honesty is a cover-up since Britney was murdered by my ex-roommate and misanthrope Meghan, Britney didn't feed herself all those pellets now did she?. But back to Salem, in doing some research online this seems to be common when Betas relocate to a new place (this bowl is a mansion compared to his og one)and apparently he can go 10 days without food, so it's all good hopefully.
