Fish appear to be low maitenance but in my experience I think they should come with some sort of equine liability or insurance of some sort. I would love to have a fish but they don’t seem to hold up too well. Flowers neither. They tend to die without water.
My experiences so far of fish include the type you get as a kid from the fair that float around nicely in a plastic bag and then you put it in some sort of tank and it dies after a few days. Shame cause its fun when you bang the glass and they move about more. So much for the goldfish variety then.
Then there’s the nicely coloured scary looking ones like the paraina types. Someone I know got a really spectacular tank with allsorts of fancy fish. Lots of exotic ones in different colours. Trouble was the big ones ate the smaller ones and they weren’t that small either. You’d think the fish food would be enough. Guess these fish weren’t the vegan type then.
The difference in the water temperature can make a difference too. apparently if you change the water the new water should be luke warm. Not too cold as that could be too much of a change for the fish to handle after being in room temperature water.
Suppose the above scenarios highlight the fact you should really know what your getting into when you get a fish. You might think they’re low maintenance but they not only need proper care being taken of them, you need to know which species get along with which. The fish owner with the paraina type fish wanted to have a lot of different species so they would have some company. Seems that people should keep in mind the fact that not all good intentions work out the way we plan them to.
