Flounder the betta fish, beloved pet of Miriam and treasured 3rd birthday gift, was found dead in the shower on Monday morning. The cause of death was suicide by jumping out of his fish bowl. The cause of him doing that is unknown.
In happier times, Miriam and Flounder mostly spent time together while she fed him and helped clean his fish bowl. Miriam also liked to ask, "What is he saying?" in reply to which her parents just made up stuff.
Flounder's favorite activities included swimming in his IKEA flower vase/fish bowl and frolicking around his bamboo plant.
Flounder is survived by his loving family members Miriam and Jeremy, an indifferent Magdalena, and anti-Betta-purchase-in-the-first-place Bridget.
