Have you ever had an aquarium? Was it hard to maintain? Do you still have one?

  • Yes, but no longer have it 38 gallon, only hard when it was time to clean it. If you do get one keep it natural with wood certain stone to balance out the PH and use real plants . Not mine but close

  • The bigger the tank, the easier it is to keep the water PH balanced. It takes longer to clean, but you don't have to do it as often.

    The last one I had was a cheap 3 gallon. The only thing we could keep alive was a beta.

  • I have a 29 gallon aquarium full of fish and it isn't that hard to maintain. I do water changes every month or so and my daughter feeds them every day. I change the filter every once in a while. That's about it. Fish are very low maintenance pets.

  • We have a 50 gal a 110gal and a 2gal. We started out with a 10 gal 17 years ago and grew from there. Once the initial setup was done maintance is simple
