Age of Aquarists

Well It seems most of the people that keep aquariums are in their 20s, was just wondering what the average age is?

I am 26 now but I started keeping fish in my early 20s. It blows my mind how little I knew back then.

I am 32, feelin pretty old right about now LOL. No, seriously, Aquaria was something I always wanted to delve into, as did my hubby, but start up was always too cost-inhibitive. Last year we bought a 20 gal tank with all the fixins at a yard sale for $10 , so here we are! And darned if I haven't caught that nasty old multiple tank syndrome LOL.
The only downside to fish is they don't like to be petted and are a bit to slick to cuddle. That's why God made cats and dogs.

*of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most*

I started when I was in my teens (15 or 16) and except for a brief break during law school, have been keeping fish since then. I am now 32.
