Two Clown Fish for My Daughter

I have had an aquarium ever since I was a kid, so I figure it has been at least 20 years. When my daughter wanted to see the newest animated film out, she fell in love with clown fish. She wanted to know if we could get some, which was the last thing I wanted to hear. I knew that the clown fish price was a lot more than the fish I got at the local pet store, but I decided to go ahead and find out how much they were. At least I would be able to tell her why we couldn’t get any, which made me sad.

Luckily, I had decided to do the research before I told her anything. I was prepared to tell her that they were just too expensive, but I found a website that has them at great prices. Even better, their store was just about an hour from where we live so we were able to go there and look at the fish in person. When we walked in, I was amazed at how many different fish they had as well as the supplies and tanks that a person would need.

I could have spent hours in there, but I knew we were there for just the clown fish, at least on this first trip there. I allowed my daughter to pick out two of them, and she named them exactly what I thought she would. The clerk told me that they were the most popular names for clown fish, which was really not that surprising considering the success of the film that has brought them to the spotlight again. We took our two fish home, and my daughter told me she would take care of them. She reminded me of how I was when I was her age, and it made me smile that she has a love for fish just like I do.
