I absolutely love fish and all other aquatic animals.
I grew up on the water and I spent every day in the ocean.
I fell in love with fish. I got my first fish tank when I was 10 years old. My mom put a single fish in the tank and I had to keep it alive. My mom claims that I kept the same fish alive for a whole year, but she might have snuck in there and replaced the fish every few months. I know there were times when I forgot to feed my scaly friend.When I got older and got a place of my own, the first thing I did was buy a large fish tank and lots of tropical fish. I had the fish tank in the same place for a very long time. The last fish seemed to be thriving until a couple of months ago when they started to act sluggish and lethargic. The fish weren’t moving around like they did in the past. I was worried there was something wrong with the food or the water. I looked into lots of different things to figure out what was keeping my fish from thriving. I started to think about all of the things that I had done differently in the last couple of weeks. One of those things was having a new AC unit installed. Air from that new air conditioner seems to be colder and much more powerful. I checked the temperature of the tank once I realized that the air vent was blowing cold air onto the tank. The surface temperature of the water was 5 degrees cooler than the rest of the tank. The air conditioner was causing the tank temperatures to fluctuate.
