    That's such a long video lol but wow..
    I guess just don't do what she did.
    Make sure you research the type of fish you want and what they need, don't put incompatible fish in the same tank and don't assume the people that sell you the fish know everything :P

    First you need to figure out what kinda fish your want.
    I've got 2 angelfish, 2 mollies, 1 catfish, 1 frog and 3 snails.

    You should be able to buy a starter kit that includes the tank, air pump, filter and heater for $100+ at Walmart

    I just want something simple and easy to take care of. I really want snails too :hearts: I grew up with pond snails, which are my favourite because their ears look like cat ears to me lol

    Ohh I just remembered my fish's name, it was Mary. Mary was always at the front of the fish bowl, she thought she was cute.

    As a reward for the fish for behaving well, you should treat them to a steaming hot bath with scented candles and some bubbles in it. :)

    Lol were you trying to give it a bubble bath? I was thinking that mcpon's advice sounded a little off, as in you would wind up boiling your fish if you did it :rofl:

    You'd end up boiling the fish was the joke, lol. It was from the Simpsons where Homer accidentally cooked his beloved pet lobster then was sobbing as he was eating him, lol. :)
