In the summer we went along to an event in Old Street tube station where Tetra had turned an area of the dingy station into a tranquil spot to sit back and relax whilst looking at all the beautiful fish swimming around peacefully whilst the hustle and bustle of London Town was going on in the background.
Unfortunatly for me with three hyper children running around the experience was not as relaxing as I had hoped for!
We still managed to take in lots of information on the fish and how to look after them and they all loved trying out the cool Tetra app that allowed their colouring to come to life right in front of their eyes.
We already have a goldfish at home that as expected has always been my job to look after.
Number two however has been going on and on about having tropical fish for ages and it had always been a no, no as I didn’t want the responsibility of anything else.
When Tetra sent us a fantastic Cascade Globe Aquarium I decided it was time to let number two prove to me he is responsible enough to look after a fish by himself.
Although this tank isn’t suitable for tropical fish he was more than happy with the waterfall feature, LED lights and sleek design that was going to be perfect to house his new fancy goldfish.
There was no setting up at all apart from plugging in the filter which is always a bonus.
Tetra make a great product called Watersafe that makes the water ready to use straight away rather than having to have a tank full of water sitting there waiting for weeks.
Number two happily got the tank ready and put his new little friend in that was now going to be his sole responsibility.
So far so good and he has been enjoying the whole experience.
For me a fish is the perfect first pet as care is minimal but children can still get a huge amount of enjoyment from them.
Let’s see if in time he will be able to get those much longed for tropical fish soon!
*we were fine this tank for the purpose of this review and they are all my own, honest opinions.
One thought on “Giving My Teen Some Responsiblity With Tetra”
I remember having fish as a youngster, it was fun to watch them but I never really cleaned them out or anything responsible.
