Something wonderful happened last evening. The children and I witnessed a live birthing session. Now before you jump to conclusions and tick me off for exposing my children to too much too soon, let me hasten and clarify that it was our guppy that gave birth. For the ignoramuses guppies are beautiful fishes and one of the few fishes that are ‘live bearers’ which means that they do not lay eggs—but give birth to baby fish.
Many parents want pets for their children—but practical considerations like space, taking care of them and other pressures of modern living make them postpone it. If you are thinking of setting up an aquarium(Even if you don’t have kids and are living by yourself.)keeping fishes can be a great hobby. It is not too difficult to set up one and it is not very expensive either. Despite what the sites say, all you need is a good water filter cum aerator, a net, water, a few water plants, a few fishes (I am partial to guppies and mollies) and an inclination and some time to care for them.
