Daughter's Aquarium
Earlier this week was spent setting up my daughter's aquarium at home.
It's her early birthday gift from her grand-uncle.
Her grand uncle and I had fun for a couple of days scouting for fishes,
decorating, and playing with buckets of water!
Apparently we learnt, we can't simply use tap water immediately
and we've got to de-chlorine it for 24hrs before the water is suitable for fishes.

But thinking now, I've been the one feeding and changing the water etc.
So does that make it mine? Did I just gotten myself another chore?!!?

You just gotten another chore! LOL We had one before too but I decided it should go..My little boy was devastated of course. But I don't have any help here these days so, he kind of understand me. good thing, there's a huge aquarium in the lobby so, he was ok with that! :D

Yes, you definitely have gotten yourself one more chore!!

When you said it belongs to your daughter, I know the big girl in you has a part too. hehe....

That looks like a great aquarium. My daughter had one when she was a girl but I didn't take good enough care of it and between the two of us we didn't seem to be able to keep the fish alive. Here's wishing you and your daughter better luck. Cheers.

That looks like you had a lot of fun. Those kinds of collaborative gifts are the best--everyone gets to enjoy one way or another.

Fish tanks are fun, until you have to clean them. What a pain in the rear, if you know what I mean.

wow, so many fishes. i guess you have another chore in your hand. but i think that would be a nice way to teach your daughter about responsibility. i read somewhere that having pets make kids know how to be responsible.

my ws entry is posted here. hope you can visit. have a great week! thanks.

I think you do have another chore! Maybe even including to remind your daughter to notice them! But hey! They do look so very beautiful! You should be very proud of your efforts!

So your daughter likes fish? It's a "high-maintenance" birthday gift. Means more work! :O

my girls have been asking me for the same for a long time now. we have a very limited space in our townhouse so i kind of thinking to give them even just the little bowl aquarium first. but they want the bigger one!
