7 Little Fishes Swimming in the Aquarium

There's a kid's song / rhyme "Five Little Monkey Jumping on the Bed" that reminds me of what happened to the 7 little fishes we bought for Aidan.

7 little fishes swimming in the aquarium, one floated upside down and died in the aquarium, Aidan called Daddy and Daddy said, one less fish swimming in the aquarium.

6 little fishes swimming in the aquarium, one floated upside down and died in the aquarium, Aidan called Daddy and Daddy said, one less fish swimming in the aquarium.

5 little fishes swimming in the aquarium, one floated upside down and died in the aquarium, Aidan called Daddy and Daddy said, one less fish swimming in the aquarium.

No more little fishes swimming in the aquarium and now it's empty.

That's the story of the 7 little birthday fishes...but we were told by my brother-in-law that it was expected that there will be some sacrificial fishes, but we didn't think they were going to all die within three days.
