A couple of weeks ago we headed out as a family to a pet shop to suss out getting fish. I thought a basic tank system and a few gold fish. After a look at what was on offer, we decided on three fighting fish (betta) in a divided tank. Each one is a different colour so we know who owns what. The names for the fish changes daily, but today it is Rhys, Jack and Max. Will and Xavier are always eager to feed them. ‘But they look hungry’ they will say several times a day. The Dr Seuss book – fish out of water – comes into reference often. They live in the kitchen and watch us as we walk by. As much as I try to ignore them, I find myself down at their level watching them and their funny displays. One in particular is always up for a fight and tries to jump out, fortunately we have a heavy enough lid.
