Based on the title, I'm a proud owner of a fish tank and four goldfishes (Or at least I think two of them are). I recently had the sudden urge to keep fishes after seeing how fish tanks can be so nicely decorated.
I did have a fish tank when I was younger and yes it was huge. I was never very much responsible of taking care of them. My role was to choose the fishes and feed them (yes being young I think I actually fed them too much).
After contemplating for a while, I finally got down to convincing my parents to allow me to get a fish tank which I succeeded pretty easily.
I wasn't looking for something big but just a size big enough to place on my desk. Haha getting fishes to fill my lonely heart. Lovely companions who will be there but not make noise to annoy you especially when working on my things. Its also rather therapeutic to see the fishes swimming around I realised.
I went down to a few places with my parents. I never knew fish tanks were so expensive, I expected it to be cheaper. Along with a small tank smaller than a A4 size paper, a light and filter was almost $45. I finally bought a tank that was around a A3 size paper and a filter for $30.
I didn't get the fishes yet because the man said that I had to run the filter for a day before putting the fish in. I added in the anti-chlorine and run it for a day.
I might want to get more fishes like other kind of fishes soon.
Do leave any comments or advise for me like why is my sucker fish chasing the rest of them or ways to clean the tank cause I'm still searching online.
