Apartment pets

What pets are good for an apartment that're also interesting? I mean, I like gerbils, but they're...kind of boring. Preferably I'd like something that didn't stink too badly and that I couldn't mistake for a pest if it got out of its cage at night. Suggestions?

Parakeet..there not smelly. They can be really sweet after they get to know you (1 year plus). They live for 15 years.

Mine comes out once a day. I can have it fly from one end of the room to my shoulder. It talks (really basic like hello) and gives "kisses".

No stink. Just change the cage paper once a week and fresh water daily...super easy. Get a Male though. They are more amped to talk.

Tropical fish.
Pretty, quiet and easy to keep.

I think birds are interesting, and they don't stink (as long as you take care of their waste). Macaws especially are interesting! They're really intelligent and lots of fun.

I would go with birds and fish anytime though I am not sure you would still call them pets while they are in aquarium.

I have heard of Parakeet but isn't 1 year such a long time to get used to it?

I've got a female cat named Maya. If you get a cat, make sure it doesn't shed a lot of hair from it's fur.

I would stay away from all rodents. They all tend to get a bit smelly. You could get some kind of reptile, like a turtle or frog, but a bearded dragon is much more interesting. Of course they need heat lamps and can grow up to 2 feet.

I've been thinking about getting a macaw ever since I saw Rio, but I think they're a bit too high-maintenance for me. If you can dedicate 50+ years of your life to taking care of one bird, though, that's cool!
