Do you own a fish tank?

Some people love aquariums. The sight of fish swimming around brings these enthusiasts a feeling of serenity after a long day at work. Watching as the fish swim through plants and figurines. While there are other people who think that it is cruel to have fish in a tank, much like an animal in a cage. Which person are you? Do you own, or would like to own an aquarium, or do you cringe at the thought of a fish being trapped with no room to explore like they would have in a river, lake or ocean?

We have various colored mollies. Easy care.

I'd love to have fish again, but we really don't have the funds or space for a large aquarium. I don't think I'd want a small tank again.

Mollies are great fish to care for. I also like Guppies as they are low maintenance as well.

We have two tanks right now. One is a 20 gallon with two sharks and a 55 gallon with an Oscar and a Geromi, though I agree that I like bigger tanks.

I use to have an aquarium but now I realize how many fish suffer and die in the pet trade and do not own an aquarium myself, but my daughter has one but it has a turtle in it.

I have clown fishes and I call one of them Nemo. I use to have freshwater but after my carps died, I decided to have different pets.

I use to own Guppy and shrimp tanks, but after one of my boys over fed and killed them I decided to save some power. My husband owns two tanks, he has an Oscar and Gourami in one tank and two Bala sharks.

I love Nemo! Yeah I gave up on my tank when the last bunch died ;-(
