After thinking of some enrichment ideas for my fishies recently, I came up with this. They found it pretty fun, I think! This is the text from the video description section: Animal enrichment is becoming increasingly considered in all environments where animals are kept in captivity. Providing enrichment means providing stimulating and challenging environments, objects, and activites for the animals. Allowing animals to do the things they would do naturally is important because it keeps them mentally and physically fit, and improves their overall quality of life. There are many ways you can provide enrichment for your goldfish; this is just one idea. Using a small round plastic bottle from a craft store, I made a sphere with holes in it. The sphere is clear, so when food is placed inside, the fish can both smell and see the food. They then have to figure out how to get the food out! A few photos, mostly just showing Felix because I was more focused on getting video footage than I was on getting photos... on another note, these pictures show his color really well. I love what a bright, happy tangerine orange color he is. This photo was right after he got a piece of food out, and right before he ate it!
