I munna eat chu lil fishy!

It’s funny how I never used to pay much attention to my parents’ 150 litre fish tank with an abundance of various types of goldfish. When it comes to our new 20 litre fish tank that is now home to two shubunkins and two mystery snails, I am transfixed.

Meet Ken Watanabe and Utada Hikaru. Ben thought that since they were Japanese shubunkins, they deserved Japanese names – except that Ken Watanabe is super dumb, eating everthing in sight, including the white gravels (but he spits them out obviously). We may have also confused the sexes, as they could both be male for all we know. Sorry Utada.

The mystery snails are another matter altogether. Those seemingly docile creatures move at an amazing speed across the tank. They are nifty little gadgets, as they both clean the tank and are able to tell you when there’s something wrong with the water. They do the latter by closing their little ‘trap doors’ so that water does not get in. Unfortunately, my camera was too fixated with the fishes to capture those amazing little things.
