I do love FISH, they are trule relaxing. It is a dream to have a flight cage of finches again and a nice 30gallon long live plant/beta/tetra tank. They are trule relaxing, plus with the live plants and the flourescent bulbs, very peaceful. Add the gentle water pump thingy that runs water like a waterfall. Very relaxing. I just dont have time for the extra work that a flight of finches or a tank of fish needs.
