Fish Disappear....Bob the Beta to Blame?

By Sally P.
Colorado, Age 15

Several fish and a couple of snails joined Bob the Beta in his tank at the Huron Street Library in Thornton, Colorado last week. They did not last long though, as they mysteriously died off, one by one.

Were the fish old? Did they become sick? Was the new climate just too much to adjust to? Or...was it something else altogether?

Bob the Beta pleaded no comment, as he usually does. Although, patrons of the library claim to see him chasing the other fish around at times.

As the small fish population seems decrease day after day at the library, only Bob the Beta truly knows what has happened. There will be a full investigation on the issue later this week.
