I Love Fishies Cause They’re So…

Not delicious. Don’t eat my fish. Fish are our friends, not food.

Guys, I finally got a real aquarium! It’s 10 gallons and I love it. And now I shall share the story of my fish tank, through terrible pictures I took on my phone:

Guess what arrived? Thanks to my awesome boyfriend for buying me my tank!

Getting everything set up...I was so proud that I put the filter together myself.

My aquarium's lights have two settings, day and night.

Even my dad is excited. He keeps coming into my room, squatting down, and going "Where's Kyle?!"

This is my aquarium so far. Right now, I just have the three little platys. But once it gets cycled and all that fun stuff, I’ll be able to introduce some more friends. I’d like to get a couple African Dwarf frogs and maybe even a molly or two.

This is basically the most exciting thing happening in my life right now. Don’t judge me.

  1. I’m so jealous but so excited for you. I love that everybody loves Kyle. I just assume that everyone loves Kyle, since your dad does. And I like his name.

    • Kyle is very feisty. He’s the tiniest one. He keeps swimming toward the filter and then letting it push him away. It’s like a roller coaster.

      I think Kyle is the only name my dad can remember. He keeps calling Guadalupe “Hidalgo.”
