"She said she started with 2 then rescued 50 from a boy that got them through a fair or something. Then they started dying and she discovered the mites on dead crabs. That’s when she decided she couldn’t care for them."

I hate fairs/carnivals that have live animals as prizes. My previous neighbor won 2 goldfish a few years back for her kid. Then she decided she didn't want to take care of them, so I took them. The poor things seemed so stressed out. Both passed away within a week. Image
