Ok, so we're having a little trouble with keeping fish alive in our house. Yes, we're on our 3rd fish in one week. Marlin II didn't even stay alive long enough for me to get pictures of him! So now we have Marlin III. The kids do know that this one is a different one because we talked about how Marlin would have to go to the fish doctor. So, I came home with a new one (that's red) and they know that Marlin II was very sick. We didn't have the death conversation with the fish...maybe that will still happen, but it was easier in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season to tell them that he was sick. We changed the water we're using for this fish (spring water now) so hopefully that will help the situation. Keep your fingers crossed!
