    A story about a Marine Tank....

    The space created by the walls is what creates a tranquil haven for a life within my lounge. In the Centre lies a rock formation of Live rock which houses a sub culture of living creatures known as the clean up Crew.

    We watch and wait and hopefully the rocks become covered a in red coraline Algea....the reefers dream :) However If it were bubbel algea...it would most definitely cause me to scream :)

    Watching the fat man lawnmower blenny rest his belly on stinging anemone can only create laughter :)

    Jump, stop, exhausted is exactly what @belindamotion is doing right now whilst looking for her clown
    :thumbup:

    ha ha ha, hope this helps

    Anything as long as it makes sense and no, does not need to be poetry, but it needs to have an intro, a body and an end.... Whatever that means

    In this order, it would be easier to write a speech about menopause.

    When i want to be alone and have my own SPACE,I sit and stare at my dads marine tank,it is so amazing,its like the whole world comes to a STOP and all I see is the magical colours of the fish and corals. Sometimes the fish will chase an air BUBBLE,thinking its food,and that's when I JUMP with LAUGHTER. He also has this very funny looking coral,it looks like a RED PUMPKIN that is alive. I get so lost in his tank that I don't even hear my dad SCREAM for me to go eat my dinner. There is so much of life living in my dad tank that wile I am looking at every coral or under every cave I'm really EXHAUSTED.on weekends we go to the shopping CENTRE to see what new fish and corals the shop has,I love our fish tank,it is truly amazing :)

    It was Halloween evening - dark, cold and misty. Pumpkins on the stoep looked out with their evil red eyes lit from within by a candle. Laughter from the nearby shopping centre let me know that the other kids were coming back from the movies. I crawled back into the space underneath the bush where I had been hiding. As they walked past my house I let out a loud scream. I saw Jannie jump so high that he hit his head on a low tree branch. It was so funny that I could just not stop laughing. I laughed so much that a snot bubble came out of my nose. Jannie was not so impressed with me that I had given him such a huge fright but he could see the funny side of it as well. Since it was well past midnight, and I was exhausted, I said good night to them all and went to bed.

    Space is a wonderful place to think of to take my mind of of school, I love looking through my telescope at all the planets and esspecualy at Mars, red planet imagining that i was a astranaught walking the planet like a space explorer.

    I Imagine feeling light like I was walking on a bubble especially when I jump because of the low gravity, but we have special jet packs in case the gravity is too week and we cant get down again - its dangerous so we must be prepaired.

    I emagined i was following a map and went right to the x in the center of the map and called out to my fellow explorers to bring the experiments. ( we must plant a pumpkin in a special green house to see how it will grow in space )
    I had to call again almost scream to them because they were so far behind me and i was worried about how much air we had left.
    After planted our seeds we bounced back to our ship as fast as we could , we were exhausted , but had some good laughter over the expedition ,we filled up our Air tanks and set a new coarse and headed of to our next stop.

    One day mayby ill be a explorer , but right now , im just hoping for a good mark so i can go home and relax infront of the telescope...
