Synopsis

Fishes could be an amazing household pet. Among all the animals, they are the easiest to care for plus they don't really take so much room. However, most kids lose their interest in fishes rather fast especially those children who want to have a pet which they can cuddle up with. They tend to be a bore for kids who are active and always on the go. That must be the reason why not too many would ask for a school of fish. Nonetheless, fishes can be the perfect pet.

Whenever parents think of granting their little kids" plea for a pet, most often the choice is to give them a fish. Even with the little care it requires, they could still teach them how to be responsible in taking care of a living thing. Having a pet fish would instill in them the value of love and acceptance of simplicity.

Parents really have a great deal of accountability when it comes to introducing a pet to a child. They have to keep in mind the child's well-being and that of the pet. With fishes there is less threat to the child's safety. It is ideal especially for a kid who easily gets tired of new things and just wants it for the novelty of having one. This would save the parents a lot of trouble in the long run since more often than not; it is them who are burdened with the duty once their child bails out.

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.  

This is a complete guide to Saltwater Aquarium Fish Care from A-Z that will get you up and running in no time, and is a wonderful way to teach your child responsibility and keep him occupied for hours.
