Skuzzy fish tank

Our fish tank was looking pretty skuzzy, so we helped Mom to clean it out and change the black sand to green rocks. First, Mom unplugged everything while I sat on the kitchen table and supervised. Charmee wanted to help (he isn't called "Audience Participation Charmz" for nothing). He helped by spilling water. Then, he sat beside Mom while she tried to capture the fish with an itty bitty net. I offered to fish them out for her (with minimal tasting), but she said that she'd pass ... Her exact words were "No, no! Bad cat!"

When Mom started removing the fish from the tank and putting them into a pitcher of clean water, Charmee tried to spill the fish into the sink. Mom caught him just in time or the fish tank would be empty and Charmee would be full of tropical fish. Mom's really tired because the fish tank cleaning took nearly three hours. Our tank is nice and clean now. We can see our fish very clearly and they look bright against the pretty green rock.

Thanks Mom!

"Bad Cat" just for wanting to help? Your mom owes you an apology. After all, fish are to eat, right?

Hmmm...sounds interesting. Mom won't let us have any real fishies. She says it's too much work and she's afraid we'd knock everything over. Well...we would!

We gots fishies too. The mom hardly ever cleans them though. They get to hide behind the algae.
