I am considering getting a little goldfish tank for my son's 3 birthday in 2 weeks time.
Does anyone have experience with kids and fishtanks? How much work is it to keep the tank clean. The one I am looking at is a almost half moon shape, funky kids one, with lids in various colours, like orange. I think it has a filter and a light. Which I read aren't necessary for goldfish.
And what are the chances of the water damaging his new shelf in his bedroom? I am not worried if the fish peg, as they don't seem to cost much, and he would enjoy getting more anyway.
oh, and we have a almost 1 year old cat...is she going to tip it over trying to get dinner?
Basically I need to decide if this is good idea, or hit the toy shop for some regular birthday toy! (which I have no idea what he would like!)
