Fish Tanks for Kids

Updated on October 26, 2013

Fish Tanks and Aquariums for Kids

Fish tanks for kids allow them to experience taking care of and owning a pet that will not shed but still requires proper care and feeding to survive. Children and family members with allergies to other pets may enjoy the tranquil beauty of an aquarium.

The child may also benefit from having the glowing fish tank light on during the night hours to help them sleep. The sound of the humming and the water can help them sleep peacefully.

No More Allergies to Pet Hair

My son had allergies and nosebleeds from the time he started school. We finally decided he might be allergic to certain dander or cat hair. When my cat passed at 20 years old, my son was able to get a fish tank. He loved watching the fish at night and it soothed him to sleep. No more nosebleeds.

This gorgeous 1 gal starter tank is perfect for the beginner. It comes with the aquarium, filter and cartridge, light hood, 15-watt bulb, setup - care guide, water conditioner and fish food.

      Betta is more kids friendly than guppies I think. I like that Betta tank. It looks perfect for even college dorm.

      We've had several fish tanks - they're so nice as a nite light for a kids room.

      Hi Holly, as I have already told you, I have published my new lens Raising Guppies and have featured this lens and your other lens about Cool Fish Tanks. I am inviting you to stop by and critique my lens if you get a chance. Thanks for visiting and blessing some of my lenses yesterday. I do appreciate it very much.

      You have some pretty cool aquariums on this lens too. I'm sorry, but I had to laugh about the stupid kid lifting weights--the dummy! I may use this lens also with my soon to be written lens about raising guppies.

      Lots of great fish tank options. Before I became a crazy cat lady I kept hermit crabs as pets. They love aquariums!

      I agree, a fish tank is a great idea for kids to get used to the idea of taking care of and enjoying a pet. You can't take a gold fish for a walk but you can get lost in watching them and you have an amazing selection! I love the Beta Bubble wall mount tank and your Magic Globe...very nicely presented!

      I have this tank and it is a great way to display one or two fish in it. Great idea for teaching kids how to care for a pet.

      I dont own a fish yet but it might be a good pet to start off with. I like these fish tanks for kids that come in a right size

      There are some really great ideas for fish tanks for kids here, our three year old loves fish! I've been contemplating getting a fish tank because we can't go to our local Walmart without her wanting to stop and visit 'her fish' for at least a few minutes. I still think she is a bit young for a tank of her own, so we are still visiting 'hers' at Wamart. When she is ready I have this page bookmarked and I'll be back. Great fish tanks here!
