Acquired: Fish / pet store
Posted Jun 14, 2015
I have had various aquarium fishes over the years. One of my favourites is the Marble Angelfish. These fishes can be a range of different colours but they are very striking and look so majestical with their splayed fins. I would often spend ages just watching their graceful movements in the aquarium.
Although easy to find and purchase I find these fish are often incompatible with other fresh water fish. On a couple of occasions I came home to find the new goldfish I had put in the aquarium dead. I am not blaming anyone but..........
You can set up a beautiful aquarium even if you have a small space. The cost is minimal and you can use some simple aquarium plants. Fish food is inexpensive.
I would recommend an aquarium as a great project for those who want to have some living creatures in their environment but who don't have space for a bigger pet. It is great for children as they will find it enjoyable taking care of them.
I would probably stick to just a few type of fish, allowing space enough for them to grow and thrive.
