helps maintain my water garden/aqua ponics
At Christmas time I got a Water Garden which meant we needed a new pet to help maintain the water and plant growth. We all went shopping and got a male Beta fish. He sits in our kitchen helping my crops of radish sprouts and alfalfa sprouts grow. He doesn't argue about his work load or helping out. He provides some calming moments for us, well at least for me when I sit to watch him.
