    If it were up to my daughters, we would have a zoo. No cats(I'm allergic) but we have dogs and fish right now. We have rescued rabbits, squirrels, Cuban frogs, geckos, snakes and the occasional baby bird that have fallen out of the tress. My youngest wants to go to school to be a veterinarian.

    It's a 55 gallon tank. We got it at a yard sale for $50, tank, lights, filtration system, decorative stuff and heater. We siphon out 1/4 tank once a week and change the filters every 2-3 weeks. We love it, it really brightens the living room!

    when daughter was 7-8yo I set her up with a 10gal tank in her room, we started with basic gold fish. This were ok....for awhile... you know the saying, “ where they’re quiet, troubles afoot” well it was quiet and I heard some splashing and then a shriek and wail of panic. I came rushing into the room, there was a small puddle, and she was looking behind the dresser that the tank was sitting on....
    She wanted to “pet the fish” so got one out with the net, and in her hand and it started flopping around bounced of the top of the dresser and behind it....no big deal....except I had fastened the dresser to the wall so the tank and dresser wouldn’t tumble over. It was a swirly funeral....

    The tank lasted about 9mo the interest was gone.

    No problems. The Ciclids don't pay any attention to the Pleco or the catfish.

    Nah, the bill was just over $60 with tip. We don't eat out much, and eat lots of leftovers when at home, so we'll go out for some sushi every once in a while.

    Thanks Craig, hope you have fun with your hard legs! lol

    When I was a kid, I ended up killing my goldfish too. I overfed them. I never knew there such a thing as overfeeding!

    I love the sound of the fish tank, it's so soothing when I'm laying in bed.

    I'd have a zoo at my home too if I could! We are working towards buying about 40 acres up in AK somewhere. We want a horse or two, a few cows, goats and chickens on our property. Of course our pups too!
