You dont actually need live plants in an aquarium it is better for the fish though as it provides more oxygen in the water and they feeds on the co2

Dang, this reminds me of when I had a fish. My cousin actually started out with this fish, but they got sick. It’s siblings had died already and they were the only one left. They were so sick that they were lying down on their side at the bottom of their tank. They looked more dead than alive. We brought them home and they stayed like that for a few days. After a week, their fins moved, not much, but they moved. A few days after that, they were able to swim, slowly. About a month after we got them, they seemed alive, happy. They let us pet their head and wouldn’t squirm if we picked them up in/out of the water(for cleaning the tank). A few months after having this fish though, something happened. They would swim sideways or upside down. I didn’t know what was happening. I came home from school one day to find my fish friend floating at the top of the tank, dead. This is what began my fear of dead animals. We buried them in the backyard. I cried a bunch after they died. I still come close to crying every time I think about them. This was my first real experience with death. Even if they were just a fish, it still traumatized me.

Really? Didn't know that about round tanks....the stuff you learn on Youtube, I'm gonna look that up. I can't afford fancy tanks, I have a 2 10's cuz I can lift them myself.

I love coming back to this video. Jenna handled this so well and she has learned from her mistakes, which is very mature in my opinion.

Jenna isn't at fault really. Once again the pet store gave wrong information. They never told them about cycling they gave her fish to do it and without sulfer (makes tap water safe) and a cycled filter it was going to fail. It wasn't her fault at all, you cant cycle a tank in 24hrs its 30 plus days of testing water, if you have a pre cycled tank you can put the filter in fror 30 days to get the correct bacteria. I want her to try again so badly!!!!

Shame on the fish store for misinforming u. U looked for a reputable place, saw great reviews & trusted a store u thought u could trust. Really no need for any1 to crucify u over it.
As a teen I worked at a reputable pet store yrs ago with an experienced fish dept. Unfortunately they r out of business due to petco, petsmart & places that have zero knowledge & get their livestock from crappy places.
Any1 with a brain who has seen even a small bit of jenna's content knows she whole heartedly loves animals. We love u beech . Ppl make mistakes & u were misinformed. Forgiveness, ppl... it's due here. She took responsibility & felt terribly about it. ✌

The size wasn't the problem it was because they didn't cycle . I feel like a lot of people do that and it's okay to make mistakes just make sure it's fixed after . I wish she didn't get sad about it.

i’m definitely on the extreme side when it comes to my love of animals. i totally get where jenna is coming from. i treat every animal as a human. whether it be an ant, a cockroach, a dog, a fish, etc. i used to have a blind beta fish. he had to be fed blood worms with a pair of tweezers. you would have to chase him around the tank and try to get him to eat. it was a long process everyday. but i loved him. all my six animals are my children. i may not be the most knowledgeable person and i may not have massive amounts of money to spend on them but they have a great home. i treat them better than i treat myself. i totally TOTALLY feel for jenna. because i’ve made mistakes like this before. she’s a saint and i respect her greatly. like what an angel. i hope i can be as amazing as her one day.

The rest of it is definitely worth the time to watch. It's a great thing to learn from her about owning up to mistakes and learning from them with maturity and grace. She didn't make a big mistake, and it was even a common one, but i received one of my first real life lessons on truly being an adult from this when she first put this up. Truly worth the watch if you've got the time

I've been watching you for over a decade, you have grown into a better person, we can all grow, and you always try to do the best thing. You're not a horrible person. Mistakes happen. I love you and everything you do. The dorkier and stupider it is, the cuter you've been, and when you talk serious, you're so thoughtful and caring. Please keep being you and don't let any haters stop you. Never stop caring. Thank you for this information!!!

Omg! i completely understand what you are saying... I did the same thing, i bought 4 goldfish, 2black with big eyes and 2normal orange with a 20gallon tank. That was what my local pet store recommended to me and they didnt even tell about testing the PH or anything like that.. It was awful, they fell sick loosing their scails so i called them and the guy on the phone told me it was normal that they was aclimating to the new water...by the end of a week or two they died. I cried a lot, i felt sick to my stomach bc they died bc of me. I tried a year later but with much more information, let my aquarium cycle for a month and a half with no fishes inside, bought all sort of medicine and tests bc i have hard water. Bought real sand with real plants and let them in the tank for another month or two and now i have perfectly healthy fishes😁 These pets stores clerks are only there to sell, they dont know shit about fish.. at least not our local ones... They also wanted me to buy a beta fish with a lamp tank... lava lamp style and i wanted a real tank, a rectangle one. They didnt even sell me a filtration system for my first aquarium... my local pet store is awful... no wonder they dont have cats and dogs there...

i had fish when i was younger, but my dad would care for them so i couldn't say whether what he was doing was right or wrong, but now i know if get a fish again ill consult this video more and definitely do my research before getting any sort of fish

Yes. People grow and learn and in order to do that they challenge themselves by trying new things. If they fail the first time, they choose to try again or to stop all together. If they choose to try again, they try again by becoming more knowledgeable. A hamster is one of those pets that a "4 year old can take care of" because they need simple care and because they like any other living things, even the best care can't keep them alive. A plant is the same, and I get it doesn't have a beating heart but I have killed all my plants too and my mom has been a florist since before I was born (currently working on a spider plant and an aloe vera...thoughts and prayers) and my mom has told me what to do and what not to do but sometimes things just aren't meant to be. Jenna cares about animals, she wasn't out to hurt any thing.

As someone who used to work at a place that sold fish, not soley fish but it was a very popular department, I 100% never trust the employee selling them (or any animal for that matter). ESPECIALLY a place that doesn't specialize in pets. The employees get very basic information about reading a label on the front of the tank and that's it. No information for each kind of fish, what they need to eat, what they need or what size they'll grow to, nothing. Unless you go into the job knowing how to care for a certain type of pet, most people are clueless. I once sold a black moor goldfish to someone not knowing it would need a 10 gallon tank within a year, and that it needed special care. I only found out when I looked into it myself (I was interested in buying one of my own, and immediately knew I couldn't care for it). I felt terrible for that little fish friend I sold, knowing that it was going to a tank and environment that wasn't suitable for it.
But I literally could not tell the customer otherwise, not only out of my own ignorance, but because I would have gotten in trouble if I had told the customer they were wrong. This happened on multiple occasions.
No matter how much an employee seems like they know, I never trust them blindly. I do extensive research before getting any pet; they're living beings after all and, as Jenna said, they deserve a good life.

Cheepy McPeepy Shrimp are a very good choice but very expensive and it’s a long start up care the good thing is, is that you can get any size tank and shape and not go wrong. Make sure to get the right drip acclimation kit and buy from a good breeder. Don’t trust PetCo or PetSmart.

I know this is an apology video but I find it so wholesome and soothing to watch.
I legit put on my sleep mask, get into bed and listen to Jenna apologize for buying the wrong fish tank at night to put me to sleep. 🤣
It’s such a wholesome way to end the night. Try it sometime im serious lol

Eccentric. - Month ago
My mom used to have aquariums and she had fighting fish. One of her fish jumped out of the tank and died because she forgot to close the tank.
She carried this around with her even 20 years later. I think what makes a good pet owner is that the pet owner takes care the animals are safe. And you certainly did that.
However, I am not so sure if the chances of the fish surviving is better in a place like this fish store who cares so little about the fish surviving in your care. I know some pet stores are really brutal. Killing rabbits as soon as they are not small and cute anymore etc. I hope they all survived and had a better life.

Don't distrust all aquatics store workers though! My best friend has a degree in ornamental fish and takes her responsibilities very seriously.
