Bringing a new, scaly family member home will be one of the most enjoyable experiences you will have. Fish are a great choice for a first pet and are reasonably simple to take care of. Preparation and knowledge is key to making fish ownership as easy as possible as well as keeping your fish happy and healthy for life!

Is a Fish the Right Pet for You?

First things first. Are fish the right choice for you and your lifestyle? Fish require less daily attention and feeding requirements than dogs and cats, so if you are someone that is out of the house for most of the day a fish may be a great pet choice for you. However in general, fish tanks do need regular attention in relation to their cleaning and maintenance. As long as you are prepared to maintain your tank and in turn, your fish community’s health, then jump right in!
