My Top 3: Tropical Fish
Just keep swimming.
My Top 3 is a weekly post where I count down three things I love in a random category. This week, we’re looking at my top three tropical fish.
One of the best Christmas gifts I ever received was a twenty gallon fish tank.

I started with goldfish to get my feet under me and then, after they all got ich and died, moved on to freshwater tropical fish. They gave me hours of entertainment and company.
My tank was in my bedroom and I enjoyed doing my homework near it. I also liked zoning out when I needed a minute - just watching the fish swim around. It was like that old school screen saver come to life. Calming and meditative.
