Me and my husband are considering getting ourselves an aquarium fish/es since we can not have dogs or any pets in the house we are renting we thought fish/es would do good. A friend actually encouraged us to have one. He said aquarium fish is not hard to maintain, there are variety of fish that are not expensive and fish food I think is not that costly too.
But what made me thought about it seriously is the benefits you can get for having such. Like the following:
1. It is a good therapy
2. Studies say that gazing at it reduces stress (i need that)
3. It lowers blood pressure
and a lot more. But for the "reduce stress" benefit, I think I'm gonna go for it.
Do you have an aquarium fish? How do you take care of it? Is it expensive? How many times do you clean it?
