Meet Gabriel Gustav the Angel Fish

This week we got a pet fish! …from the street. 

We stumbled upon this scaly fellow gasping for air (water?) in the street in front of our house.

Our neighbor has two little aquariums and has kindly taken in street fish we’ve found in the past, so we scooped new fish up in a cup and walked over to his house. But it turned out new fish was too small for his big tank (the big fish would eat him!) and too big for his small tank (he’d eat the small fish!). Dilemma.

But then! Neighbor offered us an extra fish bowl he had + fish food, and all of a sudden first official family pet happened. He then added that new fish was an angel fish. 🙌

Meet Gabriel Gustav the Angel Fish. Our little rescue.
