    My first rental, they went nuts over the fact that I had native fat-tailed dunnarts, despite the fact that they were in a large glass tank that was built into a timber cabinet, with two locks on the sliding door and no way to get out.
    We almost lost the house as they said we might let them out and let them chew things.
    I doubt the fish will get out and chew things. Pretty scary, the stuff horror movies are made from.

    Fishtank knocked over means carpets spoiled with water damage.

    There you go, expensive damage caused by fish.

    Just because it isn't logical doesn't mean it won't be brought up or held against them.

    It once stipulated on a rental agreement that my fish "were in an aquarium at all times and not roaming the property." LOL! I laughed quite a bit at that... did they really think that needed stipulating?

    I think the only time it might need to be approved is when it's a very large fishtank that could destroy the carpets/walls or whatever if it broke, or fish in an outdoor pond. I think of fish as decorations more than pets though.

    Ours is a big 4ft salt water marine tank and our real estate agent hasn't said a word.
    Might just depend on your agent

    Your *cough* fish sitting *cough.

    Our last rental had a no pets policy, we asked of we could have our dogs after we moved it. PM said yes & never had an issue.

    I would think that technically "pets" includes fish, but the agent is unlikely to take issue with it.

    That made me laugh so loud that I woke up my daughter sleeping next to me (it was worth it). What a classic!!

    Thanks for the replies. They are obviously OK with pets - next door (same duplex, same agent and owner) have an indoor dog and our lease does say pets are allowed. I just realised I probably should have told them because RE's here can be very uptight, but I haven't had enough dealings with this agent to know yet. They seem OK.

    It is a smallish rectangular tank on a sturdy stand and there are tiles - no carpet.

    I was thinking of going the 'fish-sitting for my brother while he is overseas for 6 weeks' line if they said anything, and apologising for my oversight

    Thanks again.
