about a week and a half ago, ari’s parents bought us a huge bowl and some floaty water plants. i was ecstatic! i’ve been wanting to some water plants like lotus or waterlilies underneath the bamboo plants on our backyard. we just haven’t found a good looking bowl… and this bowl is excellent!
the next day, ari’s parents bought us a few little fish to put on the bowl. having fish in the bowl prevents the pool of water to become mosquitoes’ breeding ground. these fish feed on the larvae.
i usually spend about a little time at least once a day to look at the fish. it’s fun, and koda enjoys it too. however, since it’s been raining like crazy for the past few days, today was the first day i could spend some time with the fish… and, wow… there are little fishies in the bowl! half centimeters, transparent fishes, swirling around… there are so many of them, maybe more than 40 of them. my fish just have babies!
i tried to take pictures of the baby fishies, but they’re too small and too transparent. my pocket camera refused to focus on them. so i could only take pictures of the moms (the orange ones) and the dads (the black with colorful tails) on the picture above.
now, i just have to think what’s going to happen once they all grow up… the bowl might be too small to contain that many little fish.
