This page contains advice on how to help children choose pet fish and then care for their new fish. You can read about what children like, what to avoid, and how to help children enjoy keeping fish as pets.

 
 

Pet Fish for Children and Kids.
 
 
 
The picture above shows Catherine, age 5, she just opened the jar of floating fish food for goldfish. She put a few too many flakes in the cap, so she poured some back into the jar, then a few more, until finally she had the right amount. She looked carefully at the amount, so she could try to remember how much to feed the fish next time. Then she flipped the flakes into the pond.

What Many Children Like Best.
While many adults seem to prefer an aquarium with a few large fish, children often prefer a fish bowl with several different types of small animals such as small fish like White Clouds, a freshwater crab, a dwarf frog, a tadpole, a few ghost shrimp, a freshwater clam, and an aquatic snail. Keep this in mind, when you shop online for a child. Click here for prices on each of these animals.

 
 

What to Avoid
The combination of glass, electricity, and water is not safe for most children. So a warm water aquarium with a heater is not a good choice for young children. A safe combination is a plastic fish bowl without a heater or any other electrical device. Click here for more about the Fish Bowl Kit for children.

Teach Children How to Feed the Fish.
It's very important to patiently teach children how to carefully feed the animals in their fish bowl twice each day without feeding more than their fish and other animals can eat.

Show the child how to take a small three fingered pinch of food and put it all in the bowl. Or even better put the food in the cap, look at it, try to remember the amount, then flip it from the cap.

Then wait and carefully watch to see if all the food is eaten. If it is all eaten, then have the child put another small pinch of food into the fish bowl. Keep repeating this procedure until the animals are well fed.

Be sure the crabs and shrimps that live on the bottom get plenty to eat. After 10 minutes look for bits of uneaten food, and remove them with a small 3 inch fish net.

 
 

The picture on the right was taken just after Catherine flipped the floating flake food into the pond. My beautiful 6" Red and White Pond Comet came up to the surface and starting eating. Catherine and I watched this Comet eat all the flakes. If it hadn't eaten all the flakes in about 10 minutes, we would have used a small net to remove the uneaten flakes.
