At Ryan's preschool they have a gold fish. The children take turns feeding the fish, and that is a job that Ryan is very excited for.
Over the past year Ryan had been very interested in the fish whenever we went by them in a store. He would ask for one, and I'd tell him maybe when his Daddy came home.
Daddy has been home 4 months (I can't believe that, but more on that later) and thankfully the subject of a fish never really came up...until Ryan started back at school.
This weekend when it came up, I agreed with Ryan that getting a fish was a good idea. I must have been in a delusional moment. Saturday morning we headed out to the store and picked up a Betta fish. We originally intended to get two fish. However after talking with the people in the store and doing a lot of research we decided a single Betta would be the best choice. Betta fish are also known as Siamese Fighting Fish and do better in a tank by themselves. So we are now the proud family of a blue Betta fish. We let Ryan pick his name out, and Ryan decided our little blue fish should be named Goldfish. I think it is adorable.
Here is Goldfish. The pictures don't do his beauty justice.
Do you or have you had a fish? Any tips? I just hope I can keep him healthy and happy.
