I completely agree. Haha, my gourami loves plant roots too... Eats them almost incessantly. Nevertheless, best of luck to you and your family! Teaching them well they're young is the best way to set core values for them.

Welcome to AA!

I completely agree with you about the food. If I'm not preparing it, I'm cleaning up after it, or I'm at the store buying it.
And, OMG!!! when our fish beg for food, it's just adorable. But, I do resists for their own good. Sometimes it's very hard to do.
But I started thinking about the begging thing....
If anyone else or anything else were to beg like the fish, Not only would we not tolerate it, we'd put a stop to it fast.
What is it that makes the fish begging so cute, and anyone else's so, not.

Tayeloquin-- I showed my son that you liked the boat he picked out, he was very happy and proud.

Another welcome to AA. Your tank looks great and I loved hearing that yours is a family venture. Ours are also, it's a great family hobby, isn't it?.
I wasn't surprised to hear you say your son picked out the ship. My grandson picked out ships for both of the 55g tanks. One is a Pirate Ship, skull and all and the other is a Spanish Galleon. But to be honest, I really like the look of sunken ships in Aquariums

I completely agree... sadly my tank is pretty full up with plants, so I wouldn't be able to put in my sunken ship. Ah well... haha. Maybe later, after my Gudgeons are done using the rock as a breeding ground.
