This is a a Gourami fish
have a pet tropical fish. My pets name is Ben. He lives in a tank with
other tropical fish. He is very colourful. He is red
and sort of green. My dad thought that it would be nice to get a new fish.
I have my pet
one year now. I got him in a shop in town it is called ďPets Ďn VetsĒ.
He is three years old. I decided on the name one day in school. The fish
tank needs to be cleaned out once a month. He eats tropical fish food. He
sipís bits of the water in the fish tank. My dad and I feed him.
from the tank. The fish food costs £3.45 in most of the shops. He gives
himself exercise by swimming round and round the fish tank. He canít go
anywhere so I always know he will be in his tank when I come in from
school. He sleeps in the tank beside a little plant. Sometimes he might
knock over a plant in the tank. If you have a fish like me you do not
train him you just look after him properly and keep the tank clean and
free from diseases. I look after my pet by feeding him and cleaning out
the fish tank.
I like my pet because he is small
and very colourful. Well I am sure that he has his own friendís in
there, they do not seem to fight. If you put the wrong mix of fish you
could have problems. Sometimes some fish bully others and eat them up. I
