So im at uni and i really want to invest in a pet, i love the idea of having a small insect or fish/shrimp or something similar to look after and to have on my desk to stare at etc.
I like the idea of a small fish, but not something lame like a goldfish, something that maybe looks kinda weird or unique, but id want something i could keep in a tiny environment maybe as big as a pint glass sized object or small sphere.
I also really like mantis' and have had experience feeding my fathers as he used to breed them.
So my question to you all is - what is outright the best low maintenence insect/aquatic that wont take up much room and can be transported home a few times a year?
