Small freshwater tropical fish are very affordable and fairly easy-to-take-care-of pets, and even though they are not a cuddly sort of creature, they do reward you with their own version of entertainment and calming nature. Occasionally they do attack and even eat other, but that generally means you picked the wrong ones to coexist in your tank! Though I had many different kinds of fish over the years, I don't believe I ever owned one of the above (a "twin band killie"). They sure do look beautiful in pictures and it was fun subject to paint in 20 minutes. Watercolor and watersoluble crayon, 5 1/2" x 8".
