The Fish Experience

My guest blogger, Gabriela Stanciu, is ten-years-old, and an avid biker and fish-watcher.

When I first got my fish I was 7 years old. We went over to the neighbors because they were giving us the fish and the fish tank. I was really excited the neighbor had the fish in a plastic bag that was kind of weird. We went back to my house put the fish in the tank and started the motor. I had eight of them. One big one, three gold fish, and four brown fish. Most of the time I sat in front of the fish tank in my red rocking chair and ate peanuts. The fish swam around and looked at their new home.
A year later I was walking by my fish tank I looked in and there were seven fish the smallest one was gone!!!!! We think that the biggest one ate the smallest one.

A couple of days later I looked in and there was a fish just floating there with its eyes coming out!!!! We weren’t really sure what happened to that one so we just threw it in the compost. The other thing that was weird about the fish tank was that two fish that were brown were now golden. My mom said it might be the type of fish so when they are little they are brown and as they get bigger they turn golden. Since then the fish have been fine.
