Watching fish swimming for an hour a day saves lives.
Keeping an aquarium full of fish and spending an hour or two just watching them swim can lower the risk of heart attacks. Most fish owners swear that they feel calmer, more tranquil after sitting in front of their aquarium to watch their pets go about their lives underwater.
Studies have shown that there is a significant change in the stress levels of people who do this type of activity than those who don’t.
This must be one of the reasons why fish are popular as pets.
Or maybe it’s because fish are low maintenance pets that only require scheduled feeding and cleaning of their tanks.
Why keep a pet you can’t pet? Surprisingly, some fish become very docile and actually allow their owners to touch them albeit only for a short period of time.
