Something's Fishy

I used to have fish tanks, but I haven't had one for years. We bought a used 75 gallon aquarium this weekend. It came with a plecostomus and two HUGE Oscars that were longer than my foot. I didn't want the Oscars. Carlie asked me why, and I told her that they were kind of mean and ate any other fish that you put in the tank with them. She goes "Oh, so they are carnivores, huh?" I had the fish in a 5 gallon bucket between my feet and she was sitting between me and Bob in the front of his truck. A few minutes later, I realize that she has her feet drawn up on the seat. I asked her what she was doing and she said "Well, you know that part on the back of my leg IS really meaty and they ARE carnivores." LOL.

We took the Oscars to a local pet store and I let each kid pick out a fancy goldfish. Madi named her's swimmy. Frank named his Swimmer and Carlie named her's Rock. She told me that she would take good care of Rock and nuture him. I've been trying to decide how exactly you nuture a fish!

Bob asked what the plecostomus was. And I told him. So he's been calling it the Promiscuous. So I guess he has a name too. Poor guy.

Promiscous isabout 14 inches long.

That's swimmer in the background.

And here is the fish named Rock!
