Safe Ferret & Fish Cohabitation

Take precautions when keeping fish and ferrets in the same household.

By Audrey Pavia

1. Keep ferrets out of rooms where fish tanks are stationed.

2. If ferrets must be in the same room with a fish tank, keep holes on the top of the tank lid covered with wire mesh.

3. Situate the fish tank so the ferret cannot climb up to reach it.

4. Keep testing chemicals and tank-cleaning apparatus well out of ferrets’ reach.

5. Supervise ferrets whenever they are in the same room as a fish tank.
