When considering adopting a family pet, think fish.  They are a good compromise when your children are eying that puppy in the window of the local pet store.  Aquariums need little care in comparison to cats, dogs and even birds.  When going out of town, it is acceptable to leave the fish alone for a week or even longer.  Just have a neighbor feed them once or twice.  There is no grooming or bathing needed for fish.  While a home aquarium does require regular maintenance and cleaning, it is minor compared to the care required for larger pets.  Aquariums are usually less costly, as well.  Dogs and cats require regular visits to the veterinarian, vaccinations, flea and tick medications, etc.  Last year the purchase of pet toys was a billion dollar industry.  We don't have to worry about buying a tug rope or a stuffed friend for our fish. 

An aquarium is less of a commitment than larger pets, and can still be a welcome addition to the family home.  Aquariums are great learning tools for small children. Kids get excited if they are involved in process. They can learn responsibility by having to help with the chores associated with aquarium care.  Teach the children how to feed the fish and how to clean the tank. Aquariums are very handy for helping kids develop language skills, as well.
