Everyone knows that kids love animals, and pets are well known for their positive benefits on family life. But finding the right pet to suit a busy lifestyle can be tricky, especially if you like to go on holiday regularly.
So what’s a good pet for families who travel? Fish of course! They’re affordable, silent, don’t smell or make a mess, and there’s no need for kennelling when you go away. Fish are becoming so popular, that 1 in 10 UK households now keeps fish as pets and with the huge range of options now available to make fishkeeping easy for beginners, more families than ever are now introducing fishy friends into their homes.
Fish may be lower maintenance than most household animals, but getting a pet is still a big responsibility. So this month we’ve teamed up with Tetra, the UK’s leading supplier of aquatics to get some top tips on keeping fish responsibly and how to care for them when you go off on your next Trunki adventure.
We’re also giving you the chance to win your very own beginner’s aquarium along with two of our PaddlePak rucksacks, perfect for little fish fans. Just head to our Facebook page to enter now.
Choosing the Right Fishy Friends for Your Aquarium
First things first, before you start planning your aquarium, think carefully about what fish make the best pets for children. Some breeds are more complicated to look after than others, so we would always recommend starting with tropical freshwater fish. Hardy species like Tetras and Zebra Danios are perfect for beginners.
Check out our quick guide with everything you need to know to get started, from choosing the right fish, to setting up the aquarium and making sure your new friends live a long and happy life.
Looking After Your Fish While You’re on Holiday
One of the great things about fish is that they’re fairly self-sufficient and will happily look after themselves while you’re on holiday.
Easy-peasy. Now all you have to do is decide where your next holiday adventure will take you!
