Hello Brenda and welcome to the forum

Yeah, I remember the days when my parents bought a tank, filled it with water, added fish, scooped out dead fish.

Rinse repeat :)

It's good that you're doing the research - you'll save yourself a lot of aggravation in the long run.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
