Get fishy at Petbarn Lismore
DID you know that fish are Australia's most popular pet?
Over 10 million fish are currently being cared for across the country.
So to celebrate these, Petbarn Lismore is hosting Aqua Fun Days on the weekend of January 16-17 to educate pet-parents on how to best care for their finned friends.
Store Manager at Petbarn Lismore, Meredith Gallanty, said that aquatic animals are amongst the easiest and most enjoyable pets.
While you may have lost a goldfish or two as a child, with correct care, fish can actually live for a number of years.
"Many people don't know where to start when it comes to looking after fish and other aquatic animals," she said.
"Depending on the type of fish, they can be a surprisingly low-maintenance pet for any age and with the correct set-up, maintenance is minimal and many fish live long happy lives.
"Come along to our Aqua Fun Days on the weekend and learn all you need to know."
Aquatic animals are ideal for families or individuals who want the benefits of a pet but are unable to provide the care and commitment that a four-legged friend requires.
Aquatic pets take up minimal space and time and ongoing costs are small.
They make a beautiful centrepiece in a central spot in your home and are a great starting point to teach children responsibility in how to care for a pet.
The Aqua Fun Days are designed to educate and inspire pet-parents as well as provide fun for the whole family.
Local residents are invited to come along to the Lismore store this weekend for a range of family activities - across the country this will include activities such as fish tank demonstrations and in-store competitions.
There will also be substantial savings off all the essentials you may need if you decide to invest in a finned friend.
Aqua Fun Days at Petbarn Lismore, Lismore Square, Diadem Street, Lismore on Saturday and Sunday, January 16 and 17.
