The purpose of this paper is to educate college students that fish make the best pets for them, as they are less demanding compared to pther pets like dogs, cats, rabbits, and more. To begin with, Fish are easy pets and do not demand for grooming, training and walking. You never have to take a fish for walk, you do not have to worry about them leaving a mess on the carpet to pick up and they will never disturb you or your neighbours. Students themselves are busy with their studies, so they need a pet that is less demanding in terms of time and maintenance, and fish is the only one that fits best for this role. The next most important thing you do not have to spent more money on them. They are available at pet shop and some departmental shopsat reasonable price starting from $12.00 onwards.

This may be beneficial for the child''s development and sense of responsibility but it is the parents that usually end up caring for the pet. Because of this, some parents may opt not to have any pets at all especially those who want to maintain the cleanliness of their house. Dogs for example are noisy and dirty pets that need a companion every now and then and needs extensive house training before it can be released inside the house. Cats on the other hand, leave cat fur on the carpet and scratch marks on the furniture. For the parents torn between the desires of giving their children a pet and keeping their home clean, fish as a pet may be a good option. Here are some advantages of having fish as a pet. Pet Noise Unlike a dog or a cat, a fish does not bark, whimpers or make scratching sounds on doors that can wake you up during the night. In fact, there will be no sound except for the sound of the aerator and the bubbles coming from the aquarium. Dirt and Maintenance A fish will not soil your carpets, eliminate anywhere on your house, scratch your furniture and dig in your back yard. In fact, the only maintenance required when you have a fish as a pet is to clean the aquarium once a month and make sure that the water temperature and quality is just right. No Housetraining House training pets is not an easy task. It requires a considerable amount of time and effort to house train a pet and most families simply do not have the time to do this. For this reason, a fish may be a good idea to give to your child as a pet. This way, he can learn how to be responsible when it comes to caring for his pet without being overwhelmed by the things he has to do everyday. It''s also easier for the parents as they don''t have to run around the house cleaning after the family pet. Low Maintenance and Low Cost
