It's fine to get fish, or creatures and put them into a situation where they won't die, but really, IMHO, we are bringing these animals into our homes - they haven't asked to be put there, and if we don't put them in an environment in which they will thrive and be happy, then we are doing them a gross injustice.
I couldn't agree more! I am much more an animal person than a people-person. I have two cats, a boxer puppy, have had a tarantula, a corn snake, and two breaded dragons.
If I ask a lot of stupid questions its because I am in the research phase and want only the best for my animals (more family than pets). I've read everything I could online narrowing down my choices and wanted some 'face-to-face' feedback from people that aren't trying to sell me anything.
trust me I am not one of those people that run out and get a pet 'because its cute' or 'its easter I want a pink chick' or 'well, I just loved Finding Nemo so much I had to have a clown fish.'
I want to do what's right by any pet I have.
