Mine aren't as impressive as yours, and I'm still quiet young but here it goes! (In no particular order) 10.) establish and maintain a planted tank. 9.) own a tank that's at least 55 gallons or more. 8.) have a cichilid tank. 7.) have more then one tank! 6.) get a custom built tank to be the center of a room. (Like a tv stand one or wall haha) 6.) get a chi cube and absolutely perfect it to look like a Japanese garden. 5.) learn enough to help other people make knowledgeable decisions. 4.) breed fish/expand my knowledge on breeding fish. 3.) have a koi pond. 2.) save a betta 1.) have At least one salt water fish tank so I can have a dog faced puffer fish

Nice choices I'm only 18 and feel bad that I have ticked a few of both of your lists :/ I don't have as many as you guys but I've got 5 that there is no way I am going to die without doing

5) Set up a 100gallon or more discus tank.

4) Have a 50gallon or more saltwater reef tank.

3) Breed a saltwater species of fish that has never been bred in captivity before.

2) Have a predator saltwater tank, basically sharks and rays.

1) Get my padi open water course qualification and dive along the Great Barrier Reef.

7) Become very familiar with marine life, and own a marine predator tank.

6) keep a planted tank at my workplace (once I get a job :P)

5) Own a tank of at least 220 gallons that will be stocked with all my dream monster fish.

4) Own and maintain a pond.

3) Work in my lfs to further learn about the hobby.

2) keep a nano in my dorm room (planted or marine)
