The Top 3 Pet Fish for Kids

Most Popular Starter Fish 

If your child is pestering you for a pet but you don’t really want the responsibility of caring for a puppy or a kitten, perhaps a fish (or some fish) is a good compromise.

Low Maintenance

Of course, having fish is more than simply throwing some food in the tank once or twice a day. But, depending on the type of fish, they’re fairly low maintenance pets and, if you get the right ones, cheap and hardy.

Fish School

Fish are great starter pets for kids, which will teach them about responsibility, and give them something to do after school apart from playing video games or watching cartoons.

Where to Start?

Do some research. Fresh water fish are much easier to care for than saltwater fish. And live-bearing fish are easiest of all. Variety and color will keep a kid interested, but remember hardy is the key. Sure, goldfish the cheap traditional standby, but variety is the spice of life.

Here are the top three most popular fish for children.

#3 The Platy

Live-bearing and sturdy, this fish comes in many varieties. The platy is considered one of the top beginner fish. They can be kept

When I saw a press release from Nestle U.K. talking about Bring Your Dog to Work Day, I wondered what pets at work had to do with chocolate milk. Little did I know that Nestle is the parent company of Purina, so the whole dog/cat thing now makes sense. The following is from these folks, and I can only hope my co-workers miss this column, as they have been pestering to have an office dog or cat!

A report by the University of Lincoln (U.K.) is the first to quantify the benefits and the impact of dogs in the office on work-related and dog-related outcomes. It revealed employees who often take their dog to work report 22% higher satisfaction with their working conditions.

The research also shows taking pets to work can impact positively on employees’ engagement and personal wellbeing, lead to organizational benefits and strengthen the bond between pets and their owners.

Professor Daniel Mills says, “If you told employers there was a simple way to increase their workforce’s overall satisfaction with the working conditions, they’d be very keen to learn more. Our results show that far from being a distraction, (a fear expressed by some in our earlier

10 Popular Types of Pet Fish

10 Popular Types of Pet Fish

by Jane Meggitt – 7/12/19

What’s the most popular pet in America? Most people would say dogs or cats, but based on sheer number, the answer is freshwater aquarium fish. While fish can’t cuddle like warm-blooded pets, they offer their owners constant beauty and a calming influence. Fishkeeping is also a wonderful family endeavor.

1. Betta

For ease of maintenance, bettas can’t be beat. Also known as Siamese fighting fish, bettas require separation from most other species, which means these brilliantly colored swimmers do well in small fish bowls. While keeping male bettas separate is imperative, some female bettas can live in tanks with other fish. Bettas are a cold-water species.

2. Goldfish

Another cold-water fish, goldfish belong to the carp family. Because they enjoy cool water temperatures, keep goldfish in a separate tank from warm water fish. Avoid keeping goldfish in a bowl, as they can grow quite long and need sufficient swimming room. Because they do grow so large, don’t overcrowd your goldfish tank. Well-kept goldfish can live for many years.

Cat supplies that will make both you and your kitty happy

Bringing a cat or kitten into your life immediately changes the dynamic of your home. Although cats can sleep up to 16 or 18 hours, when they are awake, they are a bundle of joy to have around. A properly cared for indoor cat can live for 12 years or longer, but to achieve this means providing them with a proper diet, comfortable places to sleep, necessary medications, grooming tools, litter box, toys
and other items to keep their attention and keep them active.

Food

There are two choices when feeding cats and kittens: dry food and wet food. However, the choices don’t end there. There are many different brands of Dry Cat Food and Wet Cat Food from which to choose. One thing to keep in mind is that the less-expensive foods are often made with fillers, while high-end cat and kitten food is made of pure ingredients, often organic in nature. The food should also be high in vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, Vitamin Eand amino acids (specifically taurine, which can help prevent heart disease). Remember that cats need plenty of fresh water daily, especially
