Fish are simple minded creatures, but need complex care taking. I recently bought some fish. I thought it would be an easy process; plug in the aquarium and then put in the fish. It was the exact opposite of what I thought. Did you know that some fish can't live in a small space? They are fish! What does it mean that they need at least 10 gallons of water to swim in? I am not even sure if fish are conscious, never the less care how much space they can swim in. Another problem I have noticed; feeding them. I am not sure when they are hungry. Sometimes I put in food and they eat it, sometimes they don't. There is no way of knowing if they are starving or full. How can fish be so difficult? I also have to clean the tank because it gets dirty. That makes me think of how they even survive in the wild. Water in the ocean and lakes is usually dirtier than mine. So why do they care about a little bit of dirt in the tank?
There are multiple different types of fish. I looked up some facts about fish and it turns out that some fish don't like each other. How picky can they be! I can't believe that I also have to heat it to their liking.
So it turns out that fish are not as simple as I thought. Maybe I should have gotten another dog or cat. *Sigh* Have to end this here because I think my catfish is being bullied by my other fish. I need to teach them manners.
