My dad was the one who got me into the hobby, lol. He used to have an awesome 75 gallon tank that we took care of together. He and my mom used to keep big tanks with oscars and African cichlids, too, but by the time I was born we just had the one in the apartment they built over our barn.
I just get comments from my mom now about how fish are too much work and I'm crazy for having so many. Also recommendations for me to get bala sharks because she always loved them, although I don't have a tank big enough. But even when I still lived with her and kept fish she didn't mess with my tank or make too many bad stocking requests. Although she did insist on a red tailed shark that killed everything else in my little 10 gallon...
