3 deviants said Bc I've heard that fish help with stress and stuff like that

1 deviant said But idk how to tell her that nowadays I have more appreciation for things like that and that I'm far more responsible

1 deviant said Idk if I'll be able to convince her but if I can then I'll probably scream tbh

No deviants said I mean my cat certainly helps me with stress but he doesn't always want to be around me grumbles

No deviants said And I think the biggest reason why my mom doesn't want me to get anymore fish is because we've had fish in the past and I was horrible at caring for them

(HOW THIS WENT IN MY HEAD)

Sai: Mom, I've been thinking and it's been a while since I last had a fish as a pet. I've grown up since then and think it'd be really neat to have one now.

Sai's Mom: Hmmm...

Sai: I promise I'll take full responsibility, I'll pay for the food and any vitamins, treatments and all that stuff.

Sai's Mom: And clean the tank?

Sai: Yesss mom ._.

Sai's Mom: What kind of fish are you thinking?

Sai: Oh, I dunno... betta, shrimp... they're all pretty.

Sai's Mom: That's fine ^_^ on one condition.

Sai: YESSSS... what's the catch.

Sai's Mom: You betta stick to your word!

Sai: ...

Sai's Mom: Huh? HUH?? Ya get it?

Sai:YES I GET IT MOM CAN I JUST GET A FISH NOW PLEASE!?

Omg xD I wish that's how it happened. But I actually awkwardly gave her a list of fish that would be easy to care for and she looked it over and was like "oh I think we could get you a betta" and I was like "YESSSS OMG TY MOM" LMAO

Omg they do ;___; Goldfish are actually really hard to take care of, when there's more than one at least ahah. I used to have four goldfish a long time ago and they had all kinds of diseases because I sucked at taking care of them ;-;

guppies are better. Similar, but way more hardy but somehow more pretty.

Not that easy, ours was fine for like a month then he refused to eat so we bought a different kind of fish food, he still wouldnt eat, so we had to buy fish salts or whatever and put them into his tank to get him to act normally again

Ah that's strange ;-; I'm sure they're easier to care for than goldfish though. Omg those things are really dirty and mine got all kinds of diseases and shit before they died. I sucked at taking care of fish when I was like 10 lmao

I think it's worth asking, after all, you're older now and more trusted with looking after pets :3
(I'm pretty sure fish do help with stress, watching them is supposed to calm people down).
