Fish have always been considered a very low maintenance pet but, the trick is you will soon get addicted and from couple fish in a small tank you will soon acquire more and more to a large fish tank, which automatically will require more maintenance.
Maintaining A Fish Tank
At first it seems real easy especially if you start with one or two fish as you will need to change the water every week, get a small water filter that oxygenates the water as well. The process of cleaning a small fish tank should not take you more than an hour or so a week, of course you do have to feed the fish everyday and enjoy watching them while they have their meal.
However, as the collection of fish increases so will the fish tank and form a small or medium you will soon find yourself investing in a large fish tank. This is not all as a large fish tank will require a few more other investments such as a proper water filter to keep the water oxygenated and clean, different types of lights, which will make the tank look better and be benefic for the fish as well.
There are many others little gadgets that are very tempting, especially when you have many fish and consider yourself a good care taker. Changing the water will be quiet a challenge and can take several hours, which still needs to be done once a week as with more fish the water will get dirty quicker.
The Beauty Of A Large Fish Tank
If taking care of a large fish tank can prove to be challenging, enjoying it everyday will make it worth your while. It is known that aquariums have a relaxing and calming effect so, everyday all you have to do is get home and watch your fish play, have their meal or just swim around and experience peace and tranquility. In the practice of Feng Shui they believe that fish bring good luck or rather take the negative influence away from you.
An aquarium is beautiful in any room but I suggest that you not place it in the bedroom as it may distract you at night and may keep you awake. However, in the sitting room, study or even the kitchen a large fish tank can easily be installed and enjoyed whenever you choose.
A large fish tank may be hard to clean but fish still make the lowest maintenance pets as you don’t need to take them out for walks or invest in litter boxes not to mention the amount they eat is so insignificant that you will not even notice missing the money you spent on it. Therefore, a fish tank, small or large is a great investment, which will always bring a smile to your face.
