America's Most Popular Pet

There are twice as many pet fish in the United States then there are dogs, according to the American Pet Products Association. In fact, research suggests that pet fish can actually make us smarter and more relaxed by lowering our blood pressure.

Aquariums are increasingly popular because as lifestyles change and become more demanding, it is difficult to give a cat or dog the special attention it needs. And with advances in technology and the amount of products available, having an aquarium is becoming easier. This makes fish ideal for the family pet.

I don't have a tank right now, but I've had both fresh and saltwater tanks, and enjoy them both. For me, it's relaxing to put on some soft music and watch the fish swim...it can actually be quite mesmerizing!

I agree that fish is an ideal pet for the whole family.

Karen, author of "My Funny Dad, Harry" said...

Sorry, I must disagree with you here. Fish are like knick-knacks, just pretty to look at. Okay, maybe they aren't dust collectors but really, a pet? They have no fur, can't pet them, can't play with them but still have to clean out that aquarium and feed them, but not too much or they'll die. Cats and dogs make much better pets. They are lots of fun, soft to touch, in tune with your feelings and return affection. Even birds beat out fish!

Ailurophile said...

Yes it's quite soothing to sit next to an aquarium and watch the fish swim through water. It has a relaxing touch to it somehow..

parlance said...

Hmmm... Relaxation by keeping fish.

Would that relate to the time I dropped the glass top sheet in the tank and it cut one fish in half, which then continued swimming around?

Or the occasion when my flying fish flew out of the teensy tiny hole in the top and its mate pined to death?

Oh, and there's the time my African cichlid pair decided to murder every other fish in the four-foot tank.

And of course, it wasn't too relaxing when I bred Siamese fighters and one day when I was at work the babies grew just old enough to start fighting (to the death).

But in general, I loved keeping fish - I must be a masochist.

I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
