When I first read the school handbook I turned to the dorming page. I first checked what pets were available on campus. I was dismayed as I saw fish only listed. As per custom my school only allowed fish. I was super bummed. Fish are boring, I thought; fish are hard to clean, I thought. Well I thought wrong.
I love owning pets, which you would know if you read my about me page. The only problem is almost all of my little loves are nocturnal. I wanted something cheap*, small, and fun to watch. What else but a fish? So that’s were it all started.
College is a super stressful time. I got my fish a little ways into first trimester. She’s provided me a lot of joy. When I was stressed out and/or procrastinating I would just stare at my fish and snail. It was so much more fun than I thought it would be. I know everyone is different, but really give it a try.
Be aware that if you are a party hosting person that you don’t get too crazy. Your fish is your responsibility and if someone knocks your tank over that’s on you, not them.
Stay safe and have fun everyone!!!
*Turns out my fish has been the most expensive start up out of all the others. Even the hedgehogs alone cost $175 and $150 each, w/o cage, food, and accessories. So be prepared to drop some dough, but their upkeep is super cheap.
