Selecting a Goldfish Bowl

Goldfish are a cold water fish, so it need not be kept in a heated fish tank. They can be kept in a fishbowl. Goldfish looks attractive because of its variety of colors. Keeping it in a bowl simply adds on to its look. It makes a wonderful and cute gift to present someone special.

Your Goldfish kept in the bowl will stay healthy and active if it gets proper filtration. You can use the Sponge filter or the under gravel filter. Among the two under gravel filter is a better choice as it does not take up much space.

You need to clean your goldfish bowl weekly. To do so you first need to pour water from your Goldfish bowl to a smaller clean bowl and transfer your goldfish into that new bowl. You can use a small net to catch your goldfish. Once done, empty the water from the goldfish bowl and clean it properly with hot water. Do not use any detergent. There are chemical cleaners available. Finally rinse it with tap water.

Now that the bowl is cleaned, fill it with fresh water and wait till the water comes to room temperature. Then transfer your Goldfish back into the original bowl. Wow! Doesn’t it look all new and classy again?

My Pet Beagle

I can go on and on about my Champ. Champ yes, that’s the name of my pet Beagle. I got Champ from a friend when he was a small pup. He was so delicate and cute. After getting him home we first made sure to give him all his vaccinations on time.
Champ is now 6 years old and he has grown so well. His body is squarish and his legs are sturdy. He is tan and white in color. Anyone who sees Champ cannot leave without complimenting his light brown eyes. He is always cheerful and his long tail is perpetually wagging.

My Champ is good natured and gentle. Even my friends who are scared of dogs get adjusted to him easily and quickly. Initially they used to want him tied when they came to visit me but today that is not the case. They know that he is content with himself and would never bother them.

Champ is very obedient and this is because we began training him from an early age. He understands everything and is a part of our family. He loves to be petted. However busy we are we make it a point to give him time and take him on walks and play with him regularly.
