I just purchased a Teddy Tank for my five year old son, who has always wanted a pet. As a working mother I do not have time to take care of animals. However, the Betta Fish is super easy to care for and the Teddy Tank keeps my son super engaged. I love to watch him feed the Teddy Tank through the mouth- very cute! I am glad that I purchased the Teddy Tank for my son and he enjoys caring for his Betta Fish.We are on Betta #2. Madison has always wanted fishes and we used to have a big tank when she was younger but no one wanted to take care of the fishes. I finally broke down around the end of last year and got her a Betta and left the responsibility of feeding to the kids. Big mistake. Betta #1 died and so I had to secretly replace #1 with #2. The good thing about Betta’s and gold fish, they are easily replaceable and you can’t even tell the difference, so she has no idea. Great guid for those wanting a fish.
