We have a new member of our family. His name is Bobby (guess who named him?) and he’s a beta fish. I don’t know what came over me to actually agree to having one. Maybe because they don’t need a bubbly thing to breathe, and his little home is a simple round tank that I can clean once a week.
My mom was worried that the fishy will get lonely, but I told her that I knew betas were solitary fishies, and not to worry because Peanut’s nose is pressed to the glass every few minutes asking Bobby if he’s ok.
The organ that helps them breathe without a bubbly is called a labyrinth. Wouldn’t be awesome to have an organ called a labyrinth?
