Odd. All the aquarists I know personally are 25 and up with some being well in their 50's and 60's.

I started keeping fish at around 10 and I am now 36 and very addicted.
We have 9 tanks up and running ranging from 2.5-180 gallons.

My mom kept some goldfish for my and my brother when I was young. I'm 17 now and have been keeping tropical fish for a little under a year but have learned an incredible amount of info about fish, much of it from these forums. I plan on having fish for a long while.
Current fish (includes all 3 running tanks): Polypterids, severums (of which I raised from eggs), gouramis, plecos (gold spot ones & a gurupa), loaches (zebras, yoyos, & a kubotai), macculocchi spotted silver dollars, an African butterfly fish, & Ctenopomas (a leopard & an ansorgii)

43 as of yesterday. Have been in and out of the hobby (due to many moves) since I was about 10. As much fun now as it was then.

48 here. Had a 35 gal. FW tank when I was in my teens.... Did'nt know anything about aquaria then. Poor sword tails... Into SW since last November. Fishes are still in QT while the main tank cycles.... again. Had to shut down the main while I was overseas for 2 weeks. Could not find anyone here knowledgeable enough to be a fish-sitter. Time to make some buddies from the local aquaria club.

DISCLAIMER: That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Wow, I feel old... 8O

I had tanks years ago, then got away from it. Now, I'm back to it once again, and loving it! I've had snakes for a few years, and ferretts, hamsters, dogs, cats, the usual assortment of animals that come along with raising kids. Now, I'm an empty nester. I actually had no pets at all until my recent adoption of Blue, (our cat), and now the tank.
