MY Opinion on the Salmon Fry in the Classroom 
My opinion on the Salmon Fry, well I love learning new things and so I took this class and it is fun and I have learned a lot about the salmon. When I started this class I thought it was going to be boring, but I got into it and now I love it and I don’t want to stop learning about salmon. This class is such an adventure so much to explore and learn. Well, we have had the fish for about five months now and we had them since they were eggs and now they are fish, which is sweet watching them get bigger.  Feeding them is the best because they are so jumpy and happy for the food. We started off with about 300 fish and now we have about 100 fish and they are doing well. We have the first Siamese fish that have survived after being hatched. The temperature of the fish tank is always at 49 or 50 degrees because the salmon are fresh water fish and they are cold blooded.  We clean the fish tank about once or twice a week. The tank has to be clean or the fish will die off. We do PH levels, which are the measurements of the acidic level or basic quality of water. PH scales ranges from a value of 0 (very acidic) to 14 (very basic), with 7 being neutral. Our tank is at a PH level of 7.4 which is really good.
