I have always enjoyed having pets most of all I have enjoyed owning fish. Having fish is one of those things that just resonates within me. It is almost a necessity in the sense that it actually helps to relax me when I can just watch them swim. I am not really sure where this comes from. I like to think it provides a certain level of Zen when it comes to my life. Similar to smoking I know I can always just take a moment to watch my fish swim.
This stress relief has been fairly crucial at certain points in my life. I can recall having moments when I just needed to watch my fish swim and think “just keep swimming” or something to that effect to prompt me to just keep going. When it comes to the kinds of fish I have had them all from cheap goldfish to expensive saltwater fish. Honestly I have come to enjoy Koi and Fancy Goldfish. They are relatively cheap and hearty little fish, they also have great colors and features.
I currently have a 2.5 gallon fish tank on my desk at work. I clean it 1-2 a week and apply a new filter at least every 2 weeks. They have a bubbler and a light that has moonlight settings. Overall I think it is a good tank for them, obviously it could be bigger. For a desk setup I feel it is pretty elaborate, and it suits my needs perfectly.
