C. named our fish Blue fish . He loves his blue fish. I was worried about the fish having air but it does fine. I read that the air circulates when you remove the lid for feeding. I really don't know if this is a fact I just can honestly say our fish is doing just fine and has been for a while now. I think this makes for a very decorative fish bowl. The kids say its a very cool fish tank. I really wanted to use marbles in the bottom of our bowl to look like gum balls. However, there are no marbles to be found in the small town that I live in. I need to order some. For now we are using the colored glass marbles that you can find at Walmart on the fish aisle and also in the craft section. I also purchased a pack of the green glow in the dark balls from Walmart. They don't glow in the dark though so it was a total waste of $3. I have been debating on adding 5 cents on the front with my white craft vinyl and silhouette portrait. I like it just the way it is , but I think that might make it even cuter. What do you think?
