Go Fish!!!

For my go fish project I got the starfish, two clown fish, a royal gramma, a shrimp, a puffer fish, and a blue tang. The total cost for my tank was $213.82. The total cost for my fish was $127.93. I would need 14 gallons of water to support my tank. The decorations I got were 2 green sea anemones. The theme for my tank is the movie "Finding Nemo."

Here is my diorama of a tuna in it's habitat. I have 6 other organisms in it including a clown fish, octopus, a crab, a dolphin, a sea turtle, and lastly a jellyfish. I also put in a few pieces of coral and seaweed. The diorama was so much fun to make.
