I'm slightly ashamed of the amount I talk to mine. Especially my kribs, like, "Who do you think you're looking at buddy. Move along." Whatever though, sometimes it's very therapeutic. Being in college is stressful beyond belief and sometimes it's the little things that get you through the day.

I read somewhere that interacting with fish like a cat or dog actually promotes good health. Not sure if it's true but it couldn't hurt I guess. I talk to my fish. Especially my cichlid because he seems to be the grumpy one and I feel he needs the most attention right now.

Lol reminds me of castaway with tom hanks and his coconut named wilson xD

Caught myself talking to the fish at petco today, was embarrassed when another customer started talking to me out of nowhere. (I was talking to the fish lol )

I'm a vet tech, so it comes natural to my career. I have never worked with anyone else in the field who doesn't talk to their pets or the ones we are treating. Especially because I work in ER, it's necessary to calm them down sometimes... So naturally I talk to my fish too... Not conversations per se, just tidbits of info. Lol.
