    straighten the castle

    Hi,

    I'm not quite understand what to straighten the castle mean. Pls help.

    The text is:

    A goldfish just wants you to feed them and clean the bowl. And, oh yeah, straighten the castle while you're there!"

    Tks, beeja

    I think it's a way to say the same; that's to say "polishing all the fishbowl", making it shines. Putting all in order. Castle for fishbowl; kind of metaphor.

    People sometimes put a small replica of a building, often a castle, in their fish tank or bowl so that the fish can swim in and out of it, it looks more interesting than just watching the fish swim round and round.
