Yeah he's awesome. He actually got
me into the hobby and is very happy having a nice tank that he doesn't have to maintain or pay for. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal though right?

That's a plus side...most FW fish are so much cheaper than SW fish. I remember when I only had a 10 gallon FW tank and thought $20 for a fish was outrageous (it was a ghostfish!). Now when I see a fish or coral for $20 it's like "oh what a steal!"

Sounds like the best! How'd he get you into the hobby? Did he used to keep FW tanks too? Or he was like "son, find a hobby"

He had a piranha tank while I was growing up and when I was in 6th grade he bought me my own 20 gallon. But they are glad I have something other to spend my $$ on than video games. But I'm still getting BO2 can't wait!

That's awesome...I heard piranhas are shy (not as violent as people make them out to be) and you have to not feed them for a while to make them vicious or something. Anyway, yeah nice to balance different interests..except keeping aquariums is addicting !

Yeah I was addicted to Call of Duty, Facebook, and my iPod. Now I rarely use any of those. I have MTS. (Multiple Tank Syndrome) that's when you know your addicted and fish and girls are the only things I think about at school. Lol!

Yeah very skittish, I wouldn't get them again. I could stick my hand in the tank with no problem.
