I love fish and I would like to have an aquarium at home. The problem is to keep the aquarium away from kids. It is a pain to replace the water on time. Do you like to have an aquarium at home?

Hi, I have aquarium at home and has lots of colourful fishes but we should be careful while choosing the fish as some are very aggressive type they will ate up all the fish, about changing the water I do only once in two weeks but yes we clean the filter once in a week, my son loves the fish too so no problem for him, I kept it near our front door as my husband believes it adsorbs the bad intentions of people.

It is nice to hear that you have an aquarium at home. I would like to keep one at my home. Once in two weeks is fine. I also heard that now a days the fish are very expensive. I wonder what type of fish do you have in the aquarium? Do you buy those fish from a store? or Do you get it from your friends or family?

Yes, in my family have a very nice full-enclosed fish tank. It is very advanced. Prices are also very expensive, is my uncle gave me, in me and my husband, after buying a house. Because I am very fond of fish, like you.

I remember my parents have a big aquarium at home, they have more than 10 fishes in the aquarium. It’s really beautiful. However like you said it takes time to look after these fishes, also to avoid from children. At beginning my nephew liked to scare these fishes, but now he ignored them. By the way it’s also expensive, some tropical fishes are cost. I like to have an aquarium at home, but I don’t think I’m patient and careful enough for fish, also I don’t have enough space in my living room for it. One day I maybe have one aquarium at home.

I have an aquarium at home, its really not that bad to take care of. I just empty out half the water with one of them suction hoses and wipe the inside of the glass with paper towels. Sometimes I'll take the rocks and other things out and put them in a bucket of bleach and let them soak. I've had mine for around three years now and when my grand kids come over they never bother it. The first time that one of them seen the tank she thought you could pet the fish. I had to explain to her that you couldn't do that. I thought it was so cute.

Hi daliaj, I did keep an aquarium at home during my kids schooling days. I had ample time to take care of the kids as well as the lovely fish in the tank. It's a great pleasure to feed the fish and watching them eating in the water, together with the kids. They had learned how to take care of others after feeding fish, as well as doing the water and aquarium cleaning regularly. It's part of our happy and healthy activities in our daily life Nowadays the kids are grown up and busy with their heavy assignments and workload respectively away from home. I had passed the tank as well the fish in it to one of my friends few years back. I don't keep any fish and other pets anymore. What's more I prefer to kill my bored time sitting in front of the pc to cope with the mylot posting Have a nice day and happy posting!

Aquarium - Ceiling mounted aquarium
I really love aquariums especially those big ones lots of nice fishes inside along with cool decoration. However I don't have one at home neither do I wish to have one because the maintenance will be a great headache. So I prefer to enjoy it from other places. Happy Lotting

Hello there, I have an aquarium and a fishpond in my house and it is very relaxing to me. When i feel stressed and depressed, i just watch my pet and i start to feel happy and forget my problems. Just find a way that your aquarium is safe to damage and you must sacrifice cleaning them. But if you're busy, just put in your aquarium small kinds of fishes like guppies, barbs, etc...together with live plants. It might take 2 months fo you to clean it because the live plants will convert the dirts into algae then will be eaten by the fishes.

Hi daliaj, It is nice to have an aquarium at home. I really love it, I love fishes and whenever I get a chance to watch an aquarium I spend time for it. If you ask the question to me, I like to have one but presently we don’t have much space at home and we are living on rent too. Let us own a house first then I will think about the same seriously.
