My daughter cat sits on a chair in front of my 55 gal. tank and is fasinated by the fish swimming by. My large 6" angelfish just sits in the front of the tank and watches the cat also. The cat even paws at the tanks glass at the fish in the front. i don't know why a dog would not find it fasinating also. I have a bubbler on both side of my tank also and a uv/clarifyer that blows a current in the long val. pants and they move around. I think it is cute.

My dogs could care less but I love watching the cat paw at the tank. As for my parrot, I had him sitting on my shoulder once as I walked up to the tank. He freaked out. He started furiously flapping his wings and clutched onto my shoulder (ouch, sharp claws) as if his life depended on it. That was the last time I did that.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

You should tape your dog and put that on U-TUBE post it here also so we can see it. Maybe you can send it to Americas Funny Videos and get on T.V.

My cat loves to sit on the back of the sofa and watch the bubbles in the new tank there are only 3 Cory cats right now and they are real small so I am curious to see what he will do when there are actually fish he can see. At night before bed he will sit on the shelve beside my 10 gallon in my bedroom and watch them swim after I feed them. As far as my dogs they get excited when I am giving an alge wafer to the Oto in my 10 gall because its in a bag and crinkles so they think they are getting a treat. LOL They look so pittyful when I don't give them anything. LOL

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have a 55 gallon, 40 gallon, 29 gallon, 20 gallon tank, 5 gallon , and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.
