no-I like them-but not too relaxing too watch at our house-we have two cats-but for sure the one would use the fish as toys- and I would have big puddle on the floor

Yes I hate it. I wish the fish would hurry up and die so I don't have to clean it. They're lucky if I remember to feed them each day. Even my kids are bored with it.

 We got one when GD was 3 for her birthday she was so into fish. She sat there for a long time just watching them swim around and I got as many brightly colored fish as I could. I let her help pick some of the things to go into it because there was no way to surprise her. Before you decide 100% to get one got to a specialty store one that is strictly fish and aquariums and ask questions. The most important question of all is what kind of water do you have and what needs to be done to make it good water for fish. Then the next important question is what fish can you put together that won't eat each other. What ever you do don't take all of your advise from the person that works the fish department of a pet store, they try very hard to give good info but with out some really special training and experience they can't give real good information.

No, we don't have one...Brady probably wouldn't pay attention to it anyway...more things for me to clean!

we did have one when willy was younger. It relaxed him and he enjoyed the brightly colored fish in it. But when the fishes died we didn't replace them and we got rid of the tank.
