I enjoy watching fish and other aquarium life. It relaxes me, provides wonder, and beauty. But it is also a HUGE commitment of time.
Feeding is no big deal, but the partial water changes and cleaning the surfaces once a week is tiresome after a while. The filter itself has to be cleaned at least once a month too. So. Be ready for that. It doesn’t take long, but still. This month I’ve neglected my two tanks terribly due to business and having an illness.
So, when I hear the gurgling which tells me it’s been too long, I have just added more water with a pitcher and some de-chlorinator. Thanks to an extremely good filter, the fish are doing fine. But today’s the day to catch up! I still love them.
