In Go Fish! I chose 3 types of fish. First, I chose one Dwarf Gourami, it has blue, red, and orange on its body. It is 3 inches long! Next, I chose the 1.5 inch Cherry Barb, with bright red, and magnificent brown. Finally, I picked one 1.75 inch Goldfish with striking, bright orange. To buy all of these fascinating fish, I spent $6.05. A 20-gallon tank could fit all these fish. My theme includes a majestic castle, for these organisms to hide in. Bright, green, glow in the dark gravel will be placed on the bottom of this tank. Also, I got a blue stone bridge. Finally, I got rock Garden coral and petco plants. As you can see, In Go Fish! I had a lot of fun building my imaginary aquarium.

Address Poem

Oh, Portuguese Man of War,

You have such a striking sting,

Your tentacles are 165 ft long!

But, I have a question,

Where do you live?

Do you live in the trees?

The desert?

Or the rainforest?

Wait, I got it,

You live in the warm,

Tropical waters!
