Is There a Safe and Nontoxic Way to Get Rid Of Fleas?

Good Question

Q: Somehow my dog and cat have brought home a case of the fleas! They're not too bad YET, but I'd like to get rid of these things as quickly and painlessly as possible. My husband is ready to nuclear bomb the house with chemicals, but I've got fish tanks to protect, so I would like to do it as safely as possible. Any tips?
