ysabelle's goldfish!...TSS kodak moments!

since my godchild,anika, have a pet rabbit named jade, i never heard the end of ysabelle's (my 6 years old daughter) pleading with us to have her own rabbit pet as well. much as we, the hubby and i, would love to oblige we said no. we live in penthouse ha!ha!ha! i wish! --i jokingly call my third floor dwelling abode that,ha!ha!ha! -- we havent got space for a rabbit.

the hubby and i promised ysabelle instead to buy her a fish tank if she does well in school. she did fulfilled her part of the deal. she is well above national average on spelling and math and did pretty well in her other subjects, now, its our turn to seal the deal......

here is the fish tank and few kinds of goldfish. since, it is deemed the beginner's choice and a cold water type, its the perfect choice.

blackmoor has a unique solid black color, short round stomach, forked fin tails and bulging eyes that protrudes to bothsides of its head. its eyes are sensitive and has very limited or poor vision which makes it difficult to find food.
