  • I'd say fish aren't so much as a pet - we've had multiple aquariums - more than 1 very large tanks and it's a lot of work to maintain them. If I wanted a PET I guess I'd pick the hamster if those were the options.

  • we want to get a fish tank but it is for totally selfish reasons.. we fish and want to raise minnows so we have a year round supply.. as a pet i would rather a hamster.. easier clean up and more entertaining to watch for the kiddos

  • I would rather have the hamster. Fish tanks are a lot of maintenance, and although they are beautiful I always feel like fish take more work and give less back than pets that you can actually have physical contact with. And I like little rodents, so that seals the deal! I would rather have a rat or guinea pig though, hamsters aren't my favourite rodents.

  • We've had a 55 gal. Aquarium. If it was clean and kept up. That! I had a cat then. He'd sit on it and try to hit the fish for fun. He couldn't though. So having cats. No teddy bear hamster for his safety!

  • Hey I'll take your 20 gallon! I have had 8 tanks at one time before, and I actually enjoy keeping them clean. I do it twice a week depending on the tank.

  • well you didn't specify if the tank was filled with many fish or JUST water. LOL!
    I loved my teddy bear hamster, they sure are cute, cuddly and soft!
    But at this point in my life, i would appreciate the FISH tank... it is FAR better than watching a television!!!
