Pets don't make good gifts unless the receiver knows/asks for's a long term comitment and a large responsiblity, so don't just give animals to people who don't expect it.

I agree, unless they know how to keep the fish and want to keep it, than you can give it to them. But if they don't want to take the time to clean the bowl/tank or even feed it, than it's not a good gift. I gave my best friend one of my male bettas that she loved and made sure to coach her and she also researched them heavily.
