My father-in-law was a huge lover of fish, birds and dogs. Living on Vancouver island, he created ponds and averies in his very large backyard. He loved planting gardens and maintaining his yard. In fact, it was so beautiful, elementary schools used to book outings there for the smaller children! A lot of work, but he loved it.
Now, my oldest daughter has gotten the bug. We’ve always had dogs and occasionally goldfish, but nothing extreme. However, she’s following in her grandfathers footsteps.
Her aquariums are a peaceful retreat. She finds them calming and great for stress relief. Her niece is so enthusiastic, as children can be, and loves to watch the fish and learn from her aunt.
Fish are actually a great way to introduce pets and responsibility to a child. That’s why so many people have goldfish. Aquariums can be as complicated or complex as you choose.
Pets in general are a wonderful addition to a family and great company for singles.
My daughter enthusiastically reviewed a number of products from Big Al’s Aquarium. Follow the link and see what she had to say. Fantastic information for someone just starting out or anyone looking to expand.
