Ya i would much rather have a dog then fish. If you really think abt it dogs are easier to take care of. Easy to feed, walks arent too hard, and you know when they are sick! But fish are cool to!

Why dont you just bring the tank to his house and set it up for a weekend and if he hates it, take it back but odds are he will like the tank

Don't convince him. Butter him up and then ask him. It usually works on my parents

You guys are funny

Haha seriously. I do chores, babysit, be extra nice, and be persistent and begging. It works.

Lol!! I have two dogs, 2 guinea pigs and a chinchilla and 8 tanks including my hermit crabs. I love all my animals but trust me when I say this my fish are definitely the easiest of all my animals to care for!! You don't have to worry about 100's of dollars of vet bills and yearly shots licenses and tags every year! Plus fish can't chew up your favorite comforter or shoes or wake you up in the middle of the night barfing cuz they got into something they shouldn't have!! I wouldn't trade any of my animals I love them all and I'm glad I have them but IMO my fish are the easiest to care for.
