Anybody got one?


I'm thinking about getting something, haven't had fish since I was a kid and I'm watching all kinds of videos.

Never really been a fan of fish, other than as a food, I find them to be pretty boring pets, all I know is, keep the water clean.

I tend to prefer dogs, but can have a cat. I like my pets more than others, cuz how I have em trained.


I was just thinking, it'd be something I could poke around with and watch a little bit, and something to maybe entertain the cat I have.


I can agree with a no care for fish, cuz a lot of alternative "pets" are more decorations and a chore.

I had a big tank as a kid, fish are a pain in the ass, cleaning the tank and shit. Though I always thought it would be cool to have a salt water eco system, you know things that basically regulate themselves. My exes doctors office had one that had like shrimp and lobsters and shit, was pretty nifty. Also, this short lived show I used to enjoy the fuck out of, when you're super drunk you get right into it...

I'm thinking of getting a 20 gallon or less and have half my fish be cleaner type, maybe some shrimp, live plants to. Yes yes, I know I'll still have to clean it and mess with it, but not as much as if I went out and got a bunch of goldfish.

I had a pet tortoise when I was young.

I may keep fish as pets if they are easier to handle.

Well, from what I've been reading/watching, fish can be a chore. Daily wipe down glass with magnet wipe, and 2-3 feedings, maybe weekly cleaning of gravel, filter checks, water changes. I plan to try live plants, which feed off the poop. Also, a good amount of fish that'll break down poop further.


I'm still doing research and watching stuff, it'll probably be a couple few months before I act.

How much water does that hold?


It wasn't till I looked into fish recently that I even knew what a guppy really was. My ignorant self thought they would be plain, but they're really not.


I might go for even smaller fish, maybe, so I can get more.

If you do get fish, keep them away from @JosephStarr. He'll want to pelt someone with them for telling bad jokes.

I plan on writing a short story (well, more like a long poem) using the writing style of Dr.Seuss.

It will be about doing creative things to people with fish.


I've done a couple short drafts already, but they weren't creative enough.

I demand perfection from my fish threats.

and that right there is a sentence nobody has ever typed.

Any tips?


I was looking at guppies, but it seems it's easy to have too many of them. What do you do with your baby fish?


Anything else in the tank?

All pets can be a chore, Just with fish, they are expensive to start up, but cheap to maintain.


Dogs/cats other way around from my experience. I took my mothers former dog to the vet for fungus on he ears, and she got a bill for 125 dollars just for the visit. I had an abscess on my arm from a spider bite, and I only had to pay 50 dollars for my visit. Seems off huh?


In any event, make sure you have a bottom feeder for your tank such as a catfish or algae eater, and cleaning won't be such a chore. Fish are fun pets such as orange puffer, they'll recognize you after a while kinda fun to see them swim up to say hi.

Go for guppies, they are easy and beautiful, a way to not get too many of them it's to just let nature be, guppies will eat most of their fry (don't put the female in a breeding box), the most healthy and smart ones will remain. I recommend getting a snail, they help with algae, I have a nerite snail, they are easy to find on stores and clean really well, they also wont be a plague since they only reproduce in brackish water.


You will want to get a proper heater if you live in cold place, best temp is 24C.


A must do is to cycle your new aquarium first before adding any fish. It's really important, google it to find more.


You should also do water changes every week or so, it's important.
