I had it once, but it is really tough to maintain it. Fishes are extremely delicate, one needs to take extensive care of them. I had to give them to someone else because I was not so good enough at that time in taking care of others. I was a teenager. But I have seen many people have aquariums in their homes and they are extremely beautiful. If i talk about myself, I have got dogs now and I think am much better in handling them.
