Just a strange "is this harmful" question. I'm 10 weeks pregnant. My mom promised my 6-year-old son (without asking me ) that she would buy him a fishtank. I think it would probably be fun, but he will obviously need help in caring for it and I just got thinking... when touching fish water and cleaning fish tanks would I be exposed to any harmful bacteria or germs? For example you know how cats can carry a disease that can be harmful to unborn babies if the pregnant mama has never been exposed to it before and are first exposed during pregnancy? Some very random things are "no-no's" so I just thought that perhaps live fish might harbor some kind of nastiness as well that may be harmful, especially for "first time" fish owners. Anyone know?
