Why I should get a pet fish and tank



🐠Why I should get a pet fish and tank!🐠
By: Liam.M 
I am leaning to persuade my audience in persuasive writing.


When you first think of a pet you usually think about the down sides, like we will have to pick up the poop or when we travel where to put it. But if we get a pet fish, it will be different. A pet fish is an amazing pet to have they can be so beautiful. I want a shubunkin goldfish and I will call it Coral (one on the right), Xavier wants a shubunkin goldfish he wants to call it Sir Dunkin (one on the right), Luke wants the Comet goldfish he wants to call it Jimmy (one on the left)... My four main reasons are the water-change, feeding, what to do with them on a holiday and the tank. 

First we need to see the water-change. When you first think of water-change you mainly think you have to empty the whole tank then refill it with tap water, but no this will kill the fish because the chlorine and ammonia is toxic to fish. When you are doing a water-change you need to empty at least 25% - 35% or 50% - 70% with three goldfish. If we have live plants we will need to do a water change about once every two or three weeks (about five, six or seven live plants at least). If we have zero, one or two we will have to do it every week. The best plants for a goldfish is rock fern and anubias. A pond pump is a excellent way of filling and emptying your tank (you need a tube), you also will need a siphon.

Now time to see how to feed the fish.Goldfish feeding is not that hard and is a little job when it comes to fish keeping. The recommended food is Repashy Gel food and NLS sinking pellets, but normal pet store food is fine. Fish food can be expensive, but usually lasts a long time. Each fish will require a different amount of food depending on the size, but they will usually eat the amount they want. If the fish becomes very fat feed it beans and de-shelled peas mixed with repasey, or just feed it less. Goldfish can become fat very quickly and if you over feed the water will become cloudy, so a pinch in the morning and in the evening. If you want the fish to be get lage faster you need to put a different variety of food.

When you go on holiday you think what will we do with the pet, but that will change with a fish. You can buy holiday fish food / weekend fish food. We should not feed this all the time because there is not the same amount of protein. There are different shapes and sizes, on the packet it will tell you how many fish it can feed for how long. So if you were away for… 3 weeks and you have, two fish you buy feeders that last one week. You will need six shape feeders. If you stick with them for every day your fish won’t grow well and will have a bigger chance to be sick. Now to see the tank states.

For a Shubunkin goldfish they can grow big… 44cm. They like to have excess 50L. A Fantail like 50L. The tank I want is the Blue Planet Classic Aquarium 70L. This will provide the right amount of room for the fish and will be a great habitat. The fish will be able make a bedding in the gravel without disturbing each other. I fish can be tratoriall.

So do you think that we can get a fish. Just remember that the tank size, water-change, holiday and feeding, lets see about the pet fish and tank. Maybe you could choose a fish too.

I am learning to persuade my audience using persuasive writing and emotive words. 

When I eat dinner I am not satisfied, but now I like eating bugs. When you first think of eating insects you mainly think yuck or ewwwww, but most people that try insects actually like them. Hundreds of thousands of people eat insects every day, and are an everyday meal. Insects are a healthy snack and they are a great source of energy. There are many insect recipes all around the world. Most people that eat bugs actually like them, now to see how to make these tasty treats.

We all have a time that we are craving a tasty treat, so it’s silly not to cook with insects. Everyone should at least try cooking with insects once or twice. They are extremely tasty and you can make quick and easy snacks. We all do enjoy a treat or two, so why not include an INSECT TODAY!? You can have scorpion lollipops, mealworm fries, chocolate covered crickets, these are all exciting snacks that are easy to make and are very tasty, so why don’t you go and look for some yummy insect treats? Now to see why these insects are so healthy.

What is high in protein and full of vitamins and minerals? If you guessed fish, meat, eggs, seeds you would be correct but did you also know that insects are a great source of protein and vitamins too? A bug a day keeps the doctor away! Beetles, cockroaches and crickets are the healthiest bugs you can eat! Any type of insect generally has the same amount of protein as an egg (which is 6 grams of protein). But the best thing is that they are lower in calories (fat) which means you can eat as much as you like without putting on to much weight. Bugs are a healthy, nutritious treat but if you are still feeling creeped out about them you can try creating amazing meals with those bugs, and they can taste just as good as a Freddo Frog!

Donuts, cakes and cookies, what do these foods have in common? They all taste delicious and are most people's favorite food. These yummy foods can be made better for you and can still taste as good by adding a nutritious bug to the dish. Foods like this have been made around the world with bugs in them, such as cricket cookies, spider donuts and grasshopper cake. They are so tasty that you do not even notice you are eating a bug so not only are you getting the tasty treat but it becomes guilt free since it has the added nutrients from the bug. There are millions of tasty recipes that can make any bug taste like a five star hotel meal. An insect can be as good as a Cookie Time Cookie, Dunkin Donuts and The Cheesecake Shop.

So after hearing the reasons why bugs are great to eat, do you think you should try an insect? As you now know they are tasty, healthy and you can make many recipes from around the world. So my challenge for you is to try a insect today! Go get them!
