Word of the Week Wednesday

Hello my Wednesday raviolis.  Today's word may seem a little silly to you, it is


This is the type of goldfish you probably know best.

Grandma-ma was in Walmart yesterday buying some fish food and they had these really neat species of goldfish in one of their tanks.  It is called a Black Moor Goldfish.

Look at the big bug-eyes on this goldfish?  How neat is this?  Now you may ask why this is called a goldfish when it isn't gold.  Very good question.  "Goldfish" is a species of fish and were many of their kind are a brilliant gold color, it is the type of fish that makes them a goldfish.   The Black Moor Goldfish is one of the most beautiful types of goldfish and is a beautiful black velvet in color.   The Black Moor is a popular and hardy fish which is generally easy to care for.  The Black Moor can be kept with other types of goldfish and will swim in a school with them. He also gets along with many other types of fish and can be kept easily in a community tank, however you must be aware that they like to dig and may uproot many of your plants and other decorations.  Grandma-ma took this picture of this big, bug-eyed beauty while he was swimming around in the Walmart tank.
I think they are funny and have big cartoon like faces with their big bulging eyes.  They were very friendly and would swim right up to the tank wall to look at you.  So let's use the word goldfish in three sentences today.  Here is grandma-ma's first sentence:

The Black Moor is a pretty goldfish with big eyes.

Have a goldfishee day my ravs.  Love Grandma-ma
