For Christmas I gave the fish a clean tank. We have had these little feeder goldies for 3 1/2 years, and paid 15 cents a piece for them. They were a summer activity for my older son that we picked up on his last day of preschool that year. We got them a bowl and a small castle and some funky colored pebbles, and figured if we were lucky we could keep them around for the summer. Who knew that our little fishes, our only pets, Mozart and Costanza, would become members of the family? Despite them both having lost their beautiful color over the past year, we still love to watch them swim. We love these beautiful creatures.
