Planted tanks in the work place

Just saw this article on a website I frequent and figured I'd share. Seems pretty interesting, maybe a good excuse to convince your boss to let you have a tank at the office

Hmm, I wonder if I could convince my teacher to put a fish tank in the class room . Nah, who would take care of them on the weekends?

Fish Tanks at Work

Hello ds...

Having a tank at work is pretty low on the list of good ideas. There are several reasons: What if your job doesn't work out for either you or your boss? Then someone gets to hang around and break down the tank. What about accidental water messes, oops? Who takes care of the tank and when? Is it good to do the job during working hours?

I could go on, but maybe you get the point. Keep the tanks at home, where you have time to maintain them properly.

As a high school teacher, I had a 10g tank, many potted plants, a worm farm, and even a hydroponic gardening setup. They all provided good lessons for the kids (even as a social studies teacher). Now I'm in college admin with a cubicle. I've thought about looking into the building rules to see if I can keep a 20 liter tank at my desk. Fairly small, but I imagine still a liability to have around. It never hurts to ask!

I keep an african cichlid tank at my office. Depending on your workplace, co-workers, boss, etc. having a fishtank at work can be done quite nicely. Fish do perfectly fine unattended over the weekend; and it sort of ensures you wont overfeed the tank!
