Why I like fish::
They don't pee on the carpet,shed, chew up shoes, & they're quiet. They are also very interesting, entertaining, and beautiful.
Best advice:
To people just starting out I would say. Do plenty of research before you start. Cycle the tank & have a water testing kit before you get the fish you want to keep. Decide on the type you want before buying them and know what their requirements and the compatibility of them is. Be prepared to do weekly water changes and whatever else it takes to keep them healthy and happy. Use a good food designed for your type fish and have good filtration.
Other pets:
A 15 yr old dog that doesn't pee on the floor, chew up shoes & is pretty quiet. I think she might be
