It's nice to read about other people's first time being fishie parents! Homegrown terror and I really are the "crazy fish people," but luckily our son loves them about as much as we do. He'll be ten months old on the 9th, and we're going to get him a tank for his bedroom for his 1st birthday. He loves to stand at our tanks and stare at the fish, and he will talk to them all the time with his little baby squeals. He gets so excited and it's the cutest thing! So we thought a tank for his room would be perfect for him to look at while he's falling asleep, because as we all know, they are very relaxing. Lucian even tries to pet our fancy goldfish! He'll stand in front of our 30 gallon and when one of the goldfish swims by, he puts his hand on the glass and "pets" the fishie!
Our son Lucian has actually been a big help at the pet store on a couple of occasions. There have been times when we were having trouble deciding which betta to get, so we would hold up both cups and Lucian will put his hand on one of them. Whichever one he chooses is the one we get. Our son, the fish master, at such a young age! Haha!
