This past year I have been learning about having an aquarium and taking care of fish – mostly goldfish. I had two goldfish in a small bowl for almost a year and they were doing great. So I decided to get them a bigger “house” and bought a 10 gallon aquarium.
I moved those two goldfish into the new aquarium and bought two more. They seemed to do well for two or three months, except I was having trouble keeping the water clean and clear.
The pet store told me I should buy an algae eater fish and let the fish clean the aquarium glass and the decor. So I did that and he is busy scraping algae off the glass and the large fake driftwood and plastic plants. So far, so good!
