My husband has a 125 gallon tank. This is what it looked like before we moved to our current house.
It was filled with beautiful colored cichlids, a delight for any child since they were so colorful. His tank truly did remind me of Dr. Seuss's One Fish,Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish since these freshwater fish come in a dazzling array of bright colors (at least the males do).
My husband is restarting the tank with fish-not cichlids this time since the tank requires a lot of attention but with little fishies that Emmy got to pick out at the pet store. When she woke up from her nap she was screaming, "fishies, time pick out fishies". She was so excited.
Emmy loves fish. Friends of ours have a koi pond in their backyard. If we would have let her, she would have jumped right in to play with the fish.
We had gone with my husband and some friends on their annual pilgrimage to Canada to go fishing. Emmy had a blast catching her first fish. Okay, so she may have had more fun throwing her princess fishing pole in the lake and watching my husband fish it out with the net.
We are now the proud owners of some red-tailed sharks, corys, Buenos Aires tetras, and some marigold wag swordtails. Emmy even picked out a little house for the fishies to live in. She now likes to stand on a small chair in front of the tank calling, "Here fishy, fishies. Where are you?"
They are right there Emmy, swimming right past your little nose. Her squeals of delight are priceless.
