cornelius' condition

remember our goldfish, bob and cornelius maximus wilmington the 4th?

cornelius seems to have a developed a buoyancy problem. occasionally, he starts swimming around the bowl looking either drunk or pained; he floats sideways or upside down; and then he goes back to being a normal fish. weird. and not a little disconcerting!

he has also lost his black coloring and is now fully gold.

cornelius is either an amazing prankster or a very ill goldfish. you judge for yourself.

bob, however, seems completely unaffected. one of the possible treatments suggested for goldfish buoyancy problems is feeding the fish one single green pea per day. we haven't tried it yet, but will report back with any future developments.
