Slide 3 BEFORE The first reason I think that fish are the best pets is because they are easy to care for. It only takes a few seconds each day to feed them and hardly any time to clean the tank. AFTER Using Examples The first reason I think that fish are the best pets is because they are easy to care for. For example, the first thing I do every morning is quickly plop a tiny pinch of pink fish food in the tank. Then once each week, I use a syphon tube to remove dirt, bacteria, and about half of the water. Finally, I just add some more distilled water to fill the tank and a bra cadabra Im finished with pet care. Slide 4 BEFORE AFTER Caring for fish only takes a few minutes a day, while other pets require much more attention. Dog owners often feed their dogs two or more times each day and sometimes purchase special food to avert food allergies. My fish, on the other hand, require only a pinch of gold fish flakes each day. Cats and dogs need grooming, special flea and tick medication, monthly baths, and sometimes tooth brushing to avoid doggy breathe. None of these is necessary with fish. Instead I spend 30-minutes a week cleaning the tank. Even compared to other small animals like hamsters, fish are the best thing since sliced bread. You dont have to provide them with a water bottle or a running wheel. If you dont have a lot of time to provide care, choose fish. Comparison/Contrast The first reason I think that fish are the best pets is because they are easy to care for. It only takes a few seconds each day to feed them and hardly any time to clean the tank. Slide 5 BEFORE The second reason I love fish is because they are so beautiful and calming. I love watching my fish when Im upset. You can get them in many colors and can even buy other water animals like frogs and sucker fish. AFTER I really began appreciating my fish last summer when my parents were going through their divorce. For this reason, I often became upset and locked myself in my room. Through the tears, I would look over and watch the purple shimmering fish zoom to the top in search of food. As a result, I was able to calm down, and would even smile at times when the gold fish chased the frog through the tunnel. If youre going through a tough time, having fish may be therapeutic for you. Cause and Effect Slide 6 BEFORE You can choose from a variety of different types and colors of fish. Its amazing all the fish and other aquatic animals there are. Just have fun choosing your fish. AFTER Like Indian Jones searching for an ancient treasure, finding the perfect combination of fish can be an adventure in itself. First, you have to choose whether you want a saltwater or fresh water tank. Then, you must peruse the hundreds of fish available, making certain you pick fish who are able to get along with one another. For example when you choose an aggressive fish, he may end up chowing-down on the rest of your pets. Finally, it can be fun to buy backgrounds, hiding places, and colorful rocks for your aquarium. Choosing fish is truly an adventure.
