They nibble shit because they can, or they're bored, or simply, they're fish with tiny little brains that can't tell the difference between shit and food. Oh, wait, that's half my family.

If you have a mall handy, find a Spencer's Gifts. I think they have a website with a storefinder. We browse the cheap crap for bargains and they do occasionaly carry good 12V blacklights, often on clearance.

While her parrot, a pervert, took pecks at her.
