Lady Gaga will no doubt have plenty of hours of fun ahead of her with reports that she has installed a £40,000 Japanese fish tank in her home as a form of entertainment while she recovers from her recent hip surgery.

The 'Poker Face' singer will be resting at home for the next few weeks to recover from the operation she underwent in February after tearing her right hip during her 'Born This Way Ball' tour which she was forced to cancel after being left unable to walk.

While she may be holed up at home, Gaga, 26, has found some friends to keep her company, reportedly splashing out thousands of dollars on 27 koi carp.

“Gaga said she’d had a dream about the fish so she had her team source some koi and set up a massive tank,” a source told The Sun.

“The whole exercise cost over £40,000, which is a lot to most people but small change to her.”

Just hours after her surgery, Gaga wrote a touching letter to her fans, crediting them for “giving her strength” to get through the operation.

“Monsters, you really gave me a lot of strength today. Everything happened so fast, but when it came time to face it I reflected on the many stories and experiences you've shared with me about your lives,” Gaga wrote on her blog.

“As they wheeled me into surgery today, I thought about all of your pain and perseverance, your unique family situations, school environments, health issues, homelessness, identity struggles, sometimes you are so brave that it terrifies me. I wonder how it's even possible.”
