The boys have a pet fish each, Master 5 has Care-y and Master 4 has Jammy. Just the bog standard pet fish right? Well our fish are special. They earn their keep in our house and help to contribute to our frugal way of living by giving back beautifully fertilised water for the garden.
Each time I clean out the tank, I siphon out 1/2 of the tank water and then pop it into the watering can. This water holds beneficial bacteria that helps to feed the plants. It's great, something so simple as keeping pet fish for the boys helps to supplement feeding the pot plants. The best thing is it doesn't cost a cent!
