How did you come about the idea of offering fish as pets?
The children and young people in the day group wanted their own pet. As we close for four weeks over the summer holidays and one of children is allergic to animal hair, however, it was clear that a guinea pig or rabbit was out of the question. I have had an aquarium for years and am aware of how much upkeep they need. We therefore took the children to visit a nearby aquarium, which they were all really excited about. Furthermore, an aquarium does not really create any dirt, cannot trigger allergies and ensures a relationship of closeness and distance with the animals.
