How do I get a fish in an aquarium in my movie?
We're shooting a short in my apartment in a couple weeks, and the character's supposed to look at a fish in a fish tank and talk to it. Can anybody recommend the best way to get a fish in my apartment safely? We're not sure where to get the fish. Should we try to rent one from a pet store? Or find a friend with a fish that they'll let us borrow? I want to do it in a way where the fish doesn't get hurt. I worked on a film a while back where the crew unplugged a fish tank for sound, and they plugged it back in a couple hours later, but one of the fish died.
