In my last post I told you that mom & dad were working on a gift the whole family could enjoy, and we’re finally ready to share some photos.
We got three new Bettas, or Siamese fighting fish. They’re very pretty and fun to watch.
The red and blue fish are doing well, but the violet fish has bloat. Dad’s been treating him with a special diet for a few days and he’s getting a little better, but he’s not out of the woods yet. My paws are crossed that he’ll be okay.
I have a couch in front of the tanks where I can watch them swim around, but it’s also fun to get up close and sniff the fishies through the hole in the top of the tanks.
The fishies smell interesting, but I’m not sure they’d be very tasty. They’re not very meaty and they have big fins. Mom said we can’t eat family members and besides, she took fish out of my diet to see if that solves my itchy skin problem. I guess I’ll stick to eating chicken and keep the fish for entertainment.
