Our first pets are fishes. These fishes are not the first few fishes that we had. These fishes that you see now are the 5th batch + 6th batch + 7th batch that we bought. The first four batches + 3 fishes in the 5th batch + 1 fish in the 6th batch were all gone with the flush in our toilet.
Our first generation aquarium is the blue plastic lid one on the right. It is to house 6 butterfly peacock fishes. Then, the second generation aquarium is the bigger glass one on the left. It is now housing 17 different species of small fishes and 1sucker fish. We also invested in some water plants, colourful rocks, water filter, oxygen generators, and lamp. I agree with my Toronto blogger friend, Jenny that rearing fishes only needed less effort, if compare to pets like dogs or cats.
April and May enjoy feeding the fishes. They will help to feed the fishes only once a day . They love observing fishes eating, pooing, swimming and chasing each other in the aquarium.
I myself too love staring at the fishes. I find looking at the fishes can relax my mind and detoxify my brain. When I was in the office, I would call my husband who was at home to check on the fishes. I was emotional, when the fishes died. I don't know that I will love the fishes, until I had them in my house.
