I like fish, but they can involve a lot of work.

His name is Ah Choy (Chinese for Lucky!!! LOL!) and he's about 22 inches long, I think! He's one huge fish!!!! His tank is HUGE too! But not the hugest there is! I dunno, I never measured! Maybe like 5 by 5 feet.

Have you ever had planted aquariums. My friend has had several. She says they are v. v. expensive to maintain!

How big is your dad's arowana? What size tank does he have?

I love fish and have had aquariums several times in my life.

Weight loss is accomplished with the mind.


A person who wants something WILL find a way....a person who doesn't will find an excuse.

Which do you prefer?
The pain of self discipline?....or...the pain of self regret?

I think fish can be great pets. :)
We have had several different kinds of pet fish in the past but no Arowana.
My dd currently has a Betta and loves it. It is very responsive and beautiful.

We had fish tanks a few times when my kids were younger, but not now. I do think a well-tended fish is pretty-but a fair amount of work.

I love watching them at someone else's home.
My DD wants one, just know that she will try to play with it. Will have to have a serious talk before that happens. Koi can get really tame though.
My nephew (4) put some chicken spice on their food to make it nicer. He also put the TV remote in the tank for them in case they wanted to watch TV while he was at school.

Hee hee - I have a blue Betta Fish named "Pan" (short for Panera) and he resides in a cute 1.5 gallon aquarium. I enjoy watching him swim around and eat his little pellets with such gusto.

Of course the fish is a gateway pet leading to a cat :)

We have 5 goldfish that we have had for 7 years. We got them when they were just tiny little gold fish, now the smallest one is about 5 inches long and the biggest one is about 7 inches long. They are very therapeutic to watch.

never understood the concept of fish as pets
no emotion, you can't play with them, the only thing you do is look at them and maintain them.
