The Relaxing Benefits Of A Home Aquarium

  2. 2. The Relaxing Benefits Of A Home Aquarium Studies have proved time and time again that having a pet in your life can make you a happier and healthier person by making you more relaxed. Just watching fish gently glide about in your home aquarium often triggers an almost hypnotic state in the observers. Sales of tapes and DVDs just of a camera taping a normal home aquarium sell very well to help calm the overstressed.
  3. 3. The Sounds One of the benefits of a home aquarium is not only the sights but the sounds that they make. Many people find the noise of running water to be very soothing; just look at the proliferation of home decorative fountains to see that. There are also many white noise machines that feature reproductions of water noises like rain or waterfall.
  4. 4. Advances in aquarium technology Advances in aquarium technology have led to air pumps and filters to become a lot quieter than they were twenty years ago. You can always move an air pump around onto various surfaces to see what sounds quieter. Then again, after a while, the steady drone of an air pump can become soothing in and of itself.
  5. 5. The Appreciation Fish are underrated as companions and roommates. They don’t argue (except to perhaps beg for food), they don’t contradict you and they don't say nasty things about your mother behind your back. One of the joys of owning a home aquarium is the delight in seeing that your fish recognize you.
  6. 6. Fish feel happiness They often do unique behaviors just for you as opposed to any other human that happens to be around. These behavior can include rising to the top of the water and kissing the surface as if mimicking eating, following you about (as best as they can), or even darting about the tank. Although it can't be proven that fish feel happiness, it certainly looks like they are happy to see you.
  7. 7. The Self-Confidence Running a happy home aquarium takes planning, patience and some technical skill. You also need to devote some time every day just watching your wet pets to see if they are in good health. These are all skills that the average person just can't be bothered with learning. But seeing a healthy fish glide about like a living jewel because of your work is like looking at a painting you made. This can give you a lot of self-confidence that can carry over into other endeavors in your life that you plan to do.
