"My names Hannah, I'm 15 and live in Oregon. I have been raising fish since I was 6. I won my first fish (a goldfish) at a fair. I took better care of that fish then I did my room (or so my parents said) It died a year later on my birthday. After that my dad got me 3 regular goldfish, 2 lived for 1 year and the last one grew to be 11 inches (in a 5 gallon tank) and lived for 7 years. He ended up getting sick and I "nursed" him almost practically back to health, (it couldn't breath properly so I put a hose next to his mouth (gills) so he could breath) but he only last 3 more weeks. During the 7 years I had my goldfish I got some Guppies, bug eyed goldfish (or so I call them), and a algae eater who never showed it's face. the guppies had babies and I saved them. but after a year I had a sickness go around my tanks and all my fish died. So it wasn't for another year or so that I got fish. I got different types of tropical fish. But just this last year my cousin had a wedding and for decorations on the tables they had feeder goldfish in little vases with fake flowers. Now after everything was over they said that they were going to just flush the fish (there were 50 fish) so I said I would take them all, now seeing as this wasn't the place to find bags for the fish to go in we put them in sandwich bags and took them home. at that time they weren't even an inch big. I had a disease go through the tank but I contained it as best I could. I still have those goldfish and I now only have about 20-30 so several died, and some that died had been eaten so some just kind of disapeared with out me knowing. But all my fish are up and swimming and that's the way I plan on keeping it!"
