Well I always treated nicely all my pets except one, it was so dumb so ugly and nonreactive and smelly that I got rid of it in less than two weeks.
I wonder why is it considered an animal and not a plant because it acted mostly like a plant.
did you guess it ??
Well it was a freshwater sponge.
All it needed was some water whatever substrate you put in and it grows grows then divides into two pieces that's its breeding. First it was fascinating to grow a sponge but after some time i lost patience and threw them away.
I remember when I gave one to my friend I told him "avoid using extremely hot water it might die" he answered " and how do I know it has died "
Sponges never again, you understand my reasons

for me, it has to be the ich parasite. Not that I chose to bring it home, but I had it, and even cultivated it - against my will.

Second is beard algae. Not an animal, typically, but this outbreak had intelligence! It was organised, and well trained, and bloody well unstoppable.

But I won :) No more beard algae anywhere!

I guess neither of these are pets, and neither are as odd as a sponge!
