Swordfish of the Sea

Joshua Chang


A female swordfish can carry 1 million to 29 million eggs inside themselves! These fascinating, under-water creatures reside in amazing communities, have an unique structure, and gain a compelling reproduction. The above-mentioned are different from any others!


Just seeing one of these creatures will make you appreciate their beauty, life cycle/reproduction, and habitat. These special swordfish, hopefully, will stop getting hunted so largely. As you can see, I hope these amazing, under-sea dwellers will live and roam the oceans for a long time!

Go Fish

I decided on some fish for the aquarium. I bought 8 goldfish for a total of $10 and 2 Blue Tangs for $70. Also, I bought rocks and plants for a decorative look. In all of everything, I spent $169.88, since I bought so much fish. For the fish, I need 16 gallons of water as the minimum to support my fish. I found very interesting the build-up of the tank. It was pretty cool, to learn all about taking care. I think it was a very fun and excellent experience.


Here is my swordfish diorama.
