Aquarium therapy and ADHD

“Studies have shown that watching fish in an aquarium calmed
children diagnosed with ADHD. Virtually any aquarium, will have a
benefit. The feeling of calm and peacefulness from watching
aquarium fish may be a diversionary tactic to steer them away from
their hyperactive activities. Other research has proven that
watching a fish tank for 10 to 15 minutes every day can be very
beneficial by lowering blood pressure substantially, relieving
stress from work and everyday life.”
