Pet Fish: Disadvantages of having them as pets


When deciding to get a pet, a pet fish is certainly an option other than the obvious choices. (Which are either cats, birds, rodents, or dogs). But, is it really worth having them as pets?

Assembling the Aquarium

Assembling the aquarium the first time can be heavy, for which we suggest you ask for help from a specialist or a breeder you know who can help you with issues. Such as feeding, oxygenation, and lighting of the aquarium. In addition, it is necessary to ensure that certain conditions are met. Especially with the temperature of the water for your pet fish. There are species that are very sensitive to the type of pH of the water (acidity or basicity). However, the ones we recommend are the most resistant and should not have problems with it.

Don’t touch your pet fish frequently

They are not pets that can be constantly touched. Even if at some point you allow yourself to be touched by them, you should not touch your pet fish frequently or capture them with your hands. As hard to believe as it may be, there are huge differences between the temperature of the skin of our hands and that of the fish, and contact can cause burns or sores that spoil their color or put their lives at risk.

Fishes get stressed too.

The fish get “stressed” Loud and abrupt noises, startles, excessive movement of water, or touching them unnecessarily can cause stress. That can negatively influence the health and eating habits of the pet fish.

Pet fishes are temperature-sensitive

They are sensitive to sudden changes in temperature. It is best if the aquarium is located somewhere where the temperature does not fluctuate constantly. Once this remains constant, pet fishes are able to get used to and develop in that environment, especially the species that we recommend.
