Meet Caillou … the fish

My youngest son turned three recently. He really wanted to have a “fishy” party for his birthday. After a whole lot of questions we figured out that he wanted a swimming party. So off we went to the local pool with some friends and family.

We had fish (cupcakes) …

And, one of the presents that he received was a fish … he named it Caillou after his favourite TV show. It’s been about three weeks now and the fish is still alive – considering we forget to feed our dog every periodically that’s saying something (don’t worry we aren’t bad parents – the kids are usually fed and dressed appropriately for the weather :-).

The thing is, Caillou came in a glass bowl. Which is okay (sort of).

I got to wondering what other fish tanks were out there – the short answer is lots! Check ’em out:

This is weird Sarah humour – stick with me … here kitty kitty

Imagine if this was your bedroom?

A built-in fish tank

Bizzare right? I’m not sure how I’d feel about spitting toothpaste on fish

Another example of a built-in fish tank – the lighting is what makes this pop

This image is of The Maldives … can I go there right now? Please!

No shortage of dramatic and odd ways to keep fish as pets. Here’s Caillou’s current home. It’s still a little drab but she seems happy.

Anyone else have a fish?

    Of course, Betas like small spaces, but Caillou looks quite like a Beta. Our fish was called Meeka, However, our cat liked Meeka a little too much and we had to gift him to a friend 😦

  2. Does Sarah Bradley have a site, you should give her props for the cupcakes. Caillou rocks!
