Get an aquarium screensaver. Much cheaper - and maintenance free  :)

Employ a Mermaid?

When I read it I thought it looked a bit fishy!

Hi, kentnavigator.
I looked into employing a Mermaid as you suggested.
I got into trouble with several agencies for being gender-specific.
Apparently they will supply either a Mermaid or a Merman at random, but not only a Mermaid.
Also, when they explained that I would need to set up a Workplace Pension, your whole idea became totally untenable.
I know you were only trying to help, so thanks.

I bought 7 water snails instead. No idea what gender they are.

Have you tried advertising for a transgender polyamorous Merperson? I think this could be the answer to your problem.

Local  Hiker, maybe you shouldn't have bothered with the water snails, you'd end up with a tank full  ( we did )  :)

Lyn L, I once experienced this with a small garden pond.
I introduced a dozen snails to clean it.
They did breed like rabbits as you suggest.
Then, as Conan suggests, the local magpies discovered what a delicacy they were.

I ended up with a pile of empty shells, overweight garden birds, and a dirty pond!

And Smiffy, transgender polyamorous Merpersons are still entitled to a workplace pension.

(Not Kent History admittedly, but I do like the anthropology behind these tangential threads.)

Perhaps you could get one to work on a voluntary basis? I understand they are very fond of water snails.

Win-win!
