Fred the Goldfish

Journal Entry: Thu Jul 17, 2014, 9:30 PM

So this year for my birthday, I got... a goldfish. A fantail goldfish, named Fred, to be exact. I bought him for myself so I'd have someone to talk to who wouldn't yell at me, or contradict me, or stuff. A little replacement for my Slugs at the assisted who would let me ramble on at them, stuff like that.

Fred started out in a 1gallon bowl, because I stupidly thought like many people that, well, Goldfish go in bowls. Well, no, goldfish don't go in bowls, they need at least 10-20 gallons of water to reach full size and live productively. And that's, 10-20 per fish. Wow. So I transferred Fred to a 5Gallon bowfront tank until I could find a cheap 10 gallon set-up. I actually thought Craig's List would be the answer, but then I found out that Wal*mart had Tetra 10-Gallon starter kits for sale as low as $33! Wow! So this month when I got money from my auntie, I bought Fred a 10G bubbler-included Tetra kit. It came with bubbler, light, and filter, all I had to add was the gravel, the plants, the water, and the fish.

Fred is very cute and adorabiffle. :3 I love watching him, and he's already such a silly, quirky fish. I have jars of pellet food, flake food, blood worms, baby shrimp for him to eat. The blood worms and baby shrimp are for treat days, and the flakes are until he gets big enough to eat the pellets without having to soak them first. XD

He has mostly plants in his tank; but I took one of the Disney Fairies plastic cups my aunt sent me for Easter, and stuck it in there as a cave for him (and oh lord he loves that cave.) and he's got a large quartz crystal in there for his bling-bling. I have black/blue gravel with random neon stones mixed in for his gravel, which is just, neat. So, I have one little inch-long fish in a 10 gallon tank, and some people would say it looks empty but... I think it looks like home.
