I have been working on this article for a while. If you are planning to get a Fish as a pet in your home, you can just go through this article and you come to a conclusion if you should get Pet-Fish or not. This article focuses on the most common parameters that any pet owner looks into, like their cost, maintenance and behavior. Pros and Cons of having a pet-fish have been discussed briefly.
SOOTHING TO WATCH:
When you are done with complete setup decoration of aquarium with pebbles, plants and illuminated with lights, then watching those colorful creatures in the water is really soothing and stress-free. As per the British Researchers from Plymouth University and the University of Exeter conducted medical research and ended it up concluding that gazing fishes swimming can be a stress-buster. People who gazed at an aquarium for few minutes showed a reduction in heart rates and improved blood pressure.
THEY REQUIRE LESS SPACE:
In the modern world, with a higher cost of living. Most of us started living in flats from an independent house. Such compact homes are not appropriate for huge pets like dogs as they require more space. Fishes are one such pet that does not require much space. All they need is just an aquarium and box for keeping their accessories like fish-net,fish-food etc. One can finalize the ideal size of the aquarium depending upon the number of fishes to be accommodated and what is the size of each fish?
THEY COST LESS PRICE:
The cost of fish is very cheap when compared to other pets that are sold in the market. Of course, the fancier the fish the greater is the price. But they’re cheaper than many other pets. If you are low with budget and wishing have a beautiful pet at home, Just go and get some beautiful Fish.
LESS MAINTENANCE AND NO NOISE:
Fishes do not require supervision all the time. All they want from you as a responsible owner is to Feed them at right time. If you are a busy person engaged in your job or business all day and still wanted to have a cute pet at your place. Then Fish is best suited for your home. Apart from this Fish is one such pet who does not make noise they are absolutely noiseless creatures. If you prefer silent ambiance in your home, you can just go for a pair of fish. You will not even realize if there are any other species in your home other than you.
NO GROOMING AT ALL!
Unlike dogs, cats and other furry pets, fish do not need any kind of grooming. Dogs and Cats(with long fur) need a lot of grooming like combing them daily, shampooing on weekly basis. Ticks, Fleas or skin infections are other issues with furry pets. But if you own pet Fish neither you have to worry about their grooming nor deal with any kind of medical issues. All you have to do is feed them.
AQUARIUMS ARE COSTLIER:
Although we have been telling you that fishes are cheaper than many pets in the market. It is also a fact that aquariums are costly. Of course, it’s a one-time investment, but if you are very conscious about your budget or pocket money then its preferable to stay from fish.
FISHES ARE NOT COMPANION:
Pets like horses, cats, and dogs are a very good companion of a man, they can be your best friend at the same time. But this is not the case with fishes, they hardly recognize you as their owner and rarely respond to you. They just want to be themselves in the aquarium mingling with their fellow fishes.
CLEANING AQUARIUM IS A BIG DEAL:
When aquarium starts stinking, its an indication that it is time for cleaning it. But cleaning an aquarium requires lots of effort and energy. You need to first catch all the fishes into another container then start evacuating the water from the fish tank and lastly cleaning the pebbles and plants in it. Indeed, its a hectic and time taking process. At the end of the day, you will also be stinking like a fish.
