peach the starfish

So, I work at a local fish store. Mom and pop type deal,one location only. Love working there most of the time,but boy do I have stories about customers, everything from being asked if we have puppies (nothing in our name suggests anything but fish, btw) to the inevitable phone calls consisting of “My fish died. Why?”(Literally. That’s all they tell me. Like I’m supposed to magically know why. Over the phone. :/) 

Today is not for sharing fuck customer stories though, moreso for sharing a PSA to anyone who happens to wander into a place that sells fish,especially saltwater fish.

1)Yes,that’s Nemo. Nemo is a clownfish.
2)Yup, that’s another Nemo. We have about 100 Nemos right now. I don’t need you to point them all out.
3)Please don’t screech every time you see Nemo.
4)Parents, please don’t let your children screech everytime they see a Nemo.
5)Yes, we have Dory too. Dory is a hippo tang.
6)No, Dory cannot be kept in your 10 gallon tank. She reaches the size of a dinner plate.
7)No, we don’t have Gill, a Moorish Idol. They’re notoriously difficult to keep alive in captivity.
8)Hate to break it you, but Bloat (porcupine puffer) will eat Peach(starfish) and Jaques(cleaner shrimp).
9)No, you cannot keep Nemo in the same tank as your betta.
10)No. Not even if you put a divider in the tank to “keep the salt water on one side”. (Once again, not kidding. Actually had to tell somebody that today.)

Brought to you thanks to Finding Dory being released in less than a month. Save me. D:

mdss songbook: mogeko technicolor phase by 凉拌生虾!
I am the red in the rose, the flowers on the blankets on your bedroom floor...

And I am the gray in the ghost that hides with your clothes behind your closet door

I am the green in the grass that bends back from underneath your feet

And I am the blue in your back-alley view where the horizon and the rooftops meet!

I am the black in the book, the letters on the pages that you memorize

And I am the orange in the overcast, a color that you visualize

I am the white in the walls that soak up all the sound when you cannot sleep

And I am the peach in the starfish on the beach that wish the harbor wasn't quite so deep

f you cut me I suppose I would bleed the colors of the evening stars

You can go anywhere you wish cuz I’ll be there, wherever you are

(wherever you are….)
