You are among the smallest of the fish family,
but you are also one of the most beautiful.
You come in many colour combinations,
but all of you have a golden tinge.
You have a great sense of vision.
You can see four different colours.
Not only can you recognize colours,
you also have a terrific sense of hearing.
You are valued greatly by humans,
as coveted pets for their homes.
People spend large amounts of money,
to buy you for their aquariums.
You are believed to have,
a calming effect on the mind.
People who keep you for a pet,
say you are soothing to their frayed nerves.
When busy men come back from the office,
after a tiring day of work,
they say speaking to you rejuvenates their minds,
even though you never reply to a word they say.
You are beauty personified.
You can also be a present,
to a man’s beloved,
as an expression of love.
The one thing that you don’t allow humans to do,
is to cook you and eat you.
You refuse to be a source of nourishment,
as eating you can be fatal.
You are one of the best of the fish family,
one of the most beautiful and likeable,
a true friend to a human,
who befriends you with open arms.
