Unhappy Depressed Fish Are Not a Myth

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/16/s...?smid=fb-share

Treat our fishy friends with respect, ladies and gents, and keep them as happy and stimulated as you would a dog, cat, or child. They have feelings as well, as science has now proven.

Yes, it's always good to take your livestock seriously.

Have you ever dealt with a depressed fish, by any chance?

Yes, my best friend and his girlfriend (now wife) had a bettaautolinker.com autolinking image bowl and weren't good on water changes, so the bettaautolinker.com autolinking image nearly died. Found them a 5 gallon full setup on Craigslist for $40 and now he's a happy healthy little dude.
