Just curious, I was having this discussion with DP regarding snakes. Is a tenant allowed to get a snake without permission as it is in a tank?
I said to DP that you do, and he said no because it's in a tank.
So I'm curious?
Just edit to clarify that I said you would need permission and he said no.

Nope even with a fish u are supposed to get permission. No pets means just that. No pets.

In NSW you need permission to keep any pet in a rental - fish included - so yes I would get permission

Don't you also need a license to keep snakes? I would think it would be something you would need to report even though in a tank.

I have fish so obviously in a tank and didn't have to get approval for them although I did ask my property manager before buying them I have no idea if you are supposed to or not but she just laughed and said it was fine as long as it was kept in a tiled area of the house and not on carpet
ETA: I also have a cat and a dog who were approved when I signed the lease so maybe that's why she didn't have a problem with the fish

I keep my 2 guinea pigs in a big fish tank inside and I have never asked for approval for them. Only the dogs and cats are on the lease. I've been doing this for the past 10yrs in 3 rentals and it's never been a problem.

Yes you do need a licence for snakes.
It was just a general discussion we got on the conversation of.
We are lucky because our current place is pet friendly (all types) and so is the one we are going to.
We just couldn't agree on the topic of animals in tanks, so I thought I would ask here.

As a LL I would like to be asked about it but wouldn't have a problem. A tank of fish I would also like to know about because of the risk of water damage to carpets (depending on the size of the tank).

Yes you need permission, but I think it would be a rare owner that refused a snake.
