Meet Flipper --:
pet is a tropical fish. He is two years old. His name is Flipper. He is
silver in colour with an orange tail. Flipper lives in a big tank with
nine other fish. Flipper was only 4cm long when I bought him in Petís n Vetís, which is a pet
shop in Waterford. And now his tank is heated at a temperature of 81
degrees. You would think this is hot but when you put your hand in the
water it actually feels cold. It is a tropical fish tank so the water has
to be heated as the swim in warm water in the wild. I feed him every day
of the week (well most of time). I never brought him to the vet because
fish do not need to be brought to the vet.
It is lovely to switch on the lights of the tank at night and sit in the dark and watch them swim around the tank.Some fish like to swim round in groups like tetras.Other fish like angel fish swim around on their own.I like keeping tropical fish. I would love to visit the barrier reef where most of these fish live naturally and dive down into the water and swim amongst them. That would be brilliant.
