A Pet That Is Easier to Keep Than Even a Dog or a Cat!

Dec 09, 2020
Pets awaken our soul entirely to a whole new dimension of companionship, care, and giving. However, often keeping a dog or a cat isn’t exactly a walk in the park. When time is scarce, but you need a pet to bring a new perspective into your lives, choosing a candidate that is relatively low maintenance and is equally as fantastic as a cat or a dog isn’t a hard decision. 
 
Fish keeping is one of the most convenient hobbies you can develop as a pet lover. Or perhaps you already have a cat or a dog and want another dynamic pet to increase your horizons as a pet owner. Many people doubt the interactions that they will get from their fishes compared to a dog or cat. However, you would be surprised to know that fishes have big personalities; they love interacting with their keepers through body language and their little finny dances. There are multiple reasons why becoming a fish keeper is a less challenging feat; here are a few of the many that will surely convince you to try a hand at fish keeping. 
 
 

Fishes are perfect if you live in a small space. 

The cost of living keeps skyrocketing; homeowners are in a fix to find a pet compatible with small living spaces. Keeping a small fish aquarium is an option. Moreover, fish tanks come in several sizes and designs that facilitate their compatibility with the type of space you have. 
And that is not even the most exciting part of fish keeping. Did you know you can even find the perfect self-sustaining fish tank to bring your finny friends to your workspace? We stress that keeping goldfish in a bowl is a practice that receives serious disagreement from members of the fish keeping community. There is absolutely nothing cute or convenient about using a bowl as a habitat for your fishes. 
 
The minimum that we recommend as a beginner fish keeper is, to begin with, a 5-gallon fish tank. Nonetheless, small fishes such as guppies, zebra danios, neon tetras fit comfortably in smaller aquariums. 
 

A pet fish requires the least number of follow-ups.

One of the main reasons why fish keeping is gaining so much traction is because maintaining a beautiful fish tank is one of the easiest feats you will accomplish. Once you have established a sturdy fish tank with the right water parameters and the necessary equipment, including a filter, thermometer, pump (if needed), and heaters (for tropical fish variety), you really don’t have to tend them to them with an ardent regularity. Perhaps you will be conducting weekly water changes to keep the nitrate levels in check and feeding the fish once or twice a day, which will hardly take 30 minutes of your time. 
 

You can put your creativeness to work.

Becoming a fish keeper is an excellent way to channel the creativeness in you. Using drifting aquascaping elements, including aquarium plants, driftwood, and aquarium rocks, you can create a living artwork. Literally! All these elements are incredibly budget-friendly, and once you have put them through proper conditioning, they last a lifetime. aquascaping is extremely popular in the fish keeping community. Once you have set up an excellent 55-gallon tank, your friends will keep gawking at it. They look majestic! Oh, if you want to get the best view of your fish tank, choosing an aquarium stand of a suitable height is the right approach.
 

The apparent health benefits of keeping an aquarium 

Have you ever wondered why places like your doctor’s consultation room usually include one of those fantastic and vivid aquariums? Well, there is solid backing to the fact that fish aquariums improve the quality of your sleep, alleviate stress levels, reduce anxiety and pain, and enhances creativity. As an avid fish hobbyist, I can personally testify to most of these qualms. 

You can have some me time and even go on a vacation.

If you are tired from the daily noises and the humdrum of life, treating yourself to some peace isn’t a once in a blue thing with fish keeping. Unlike cats and dogs, which are notorious for being loud, albeit beautiful pets, your fish prefers silence, making them even more convenient for pet lovers. 
 
Besides the convenience and peace, if you need to make a quick trip for a day or two, leaving your fish at home isn’t a thing of worry. You need to get a reliable automatic fish feeder and keep the necessary equipment running, and voila, you are good to go. However, we strongly suggest preparing the necessary arrangements for your finny friends before you leave. And don’t be off for long- they’ll get lonely.
