About Us
Groundhog, Oscar, the Pet of the Day
Name: Groundhog, Oscar
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Comet, Koi
Home: New Hampshire, USA
   Groundhog is a comet, and Oscar is a Koi. They are two of my seven fish. Groundhog and Oscar never leave each other's side. When I wake up in the morning, all seven fish are frantically swimming by the side of the tank nearest to my bed. If I walk into the room they immediately recognize me and swim toward me. They each have their own moods and personalities, they love to swim in the current of the filter and other games they have made up. I have even taught them tricks. They are trained to follow my finger around in circles and Oscar can follow my finger and jump out of the water! They are great fish love to hide behind the plants and come out and surprise each other, kind of a fish hide and seek! Oscar is named after Oscar the grouch, because he just looks so mean! And Groundhog is named after Groundhog's Day because we both share the same birthday. How can you not love a pet that shares the same birthday with you?
