Goldfish

I wanted to arrange all my goldfish in a line, or slightly wavy string, and have the last one's tail peeking above the surface of the water. You know, so that all as one it looked like a tiny, mutant sea serpent? I had about nine fish in the tank but who is counting. Obviously, me, I was not counting.

But, you see, they wouldn't stop swimming. They were actually horrible at taking any direction, to be honest. I'm not even sure if fish have ears or if they can hear through the glass. So I waited for them to die. One by one. And even then it was hard to do this. I had to rig a thin piece of near-transparent wire through their corpses. It took a long time. Such is liquid.
