Aquatic home

Aquarium with green lush moss gives a fish a habitat
Ph is an important part not too low, neutral is a safe state
Overfeeding is a disaster such unpleasant smells and algea blooms
you'll want to move into another room
Across the tank the fish like to swim darting in between plant leaves.
Snails like to stick on the walls eating little algea pieces and water fleas.
Snails are tastey to the old clown loach He can crunch and munch.
Trapdoor, mystery purple and orange, olive nirite look like little Mr. Magoos
Mystery is the most beautiful if ever in the notion to adopt a snail pet.
Beware potassium permanganese can kill snails and shrimp.
Cherry red shrimp are the cutest little guys; only an inch long full grown.
No better swimmer has ever been known! 
Marimo is a legend of the orient kept for good luck and serenity.
Koi are not coy so don't be decieved they get quite large and spit for attention.
Gold fish are such a simple little fish bright and personable
Gold fish have a lot of ammonia which causes the fin rot.
Aquariums are not for the easily discouraged....
Fish are a wonderful enjoyment but sadness overcomes when life is cut short.

    Doris I just finished a little write to answer you in partaking of a silly poem and came back here to your site to tell you about it and just happened to choose this poem to comment and tell you ! While this poem of yours is an interesting and informative write I assure you it's strictly coincidence that I jumped on it to tell you about my lil poem answer to yours! No harm intended! sorry for any loss of your fish friends. Read "thoughts by a horse owner" to see what I mean. too weird! -Bob

    OH yes, I sure remember trying to keep up an aquarium. What a disaster. I sure loved those little t hings like lizards that could be in or out of water. And now I have forgotten the name of the really beautiful fish we had in there. Good one, Doris.

    Aquariums do require an awful lot of maintenance and care. You have described very accurately what one must do if he or she has a fish tank in the house.
