Oh my I really don’t want to take credit for all that– But thank you, I’m glad that I somehow guided you to a better path. I think its a very large problem in the pet keeping community. (Though I see it most often in the reptile keeping community. There’s nothing wrong with a collection of course so long as you care for them all. But I think for some it gets to the point where some are just crossing off a list going from one animal to the next and to the next for the sake of having the animal. But this goes with all animals, fish included. )
Any animal is a commitment and a life that is now in your hands. You control their world. You are responsible for them and must ensure they are as happy and healthy for as long as possible.
It’s always a fun and exciting event to get a new pet, but sometimes I feel people get so into it that they forget to appreciate the animals they already have. Which is really unfortunate and saddens me greatly.
So I am so happy that you have found the joy in caring for and appreciating the friends already in your care. So so happy I’m so happy for you and your animals. I can’t stress that enough. I wish you and them luck, health and a long happy life together.
