Do More Men Than Women Have Aquariums?

I've had 4-5 tanks up at one time. My largest was a 55g.

I've never been interested in Oscars or the big aggressive fish. Love the look of Africans, but not the worry over dynamics.

But I've gotten my predatory thrills owning snakes , mostly nonvenemous, with a few exceptions, lizards and Tarantulas. I prefer feeding dead prey...but couldn't with my Tarantulas.

Falconry had plenty of blood and guts. So I've never needed to see fish get eaten.

I've managed pet stores a few times over the years. Including a reptile store. So I'm happy with my serene planted tanks ❤️

I hardly ever see females in the LFS when I'm there looking at the new stock. My wife loves my tanks but has said several times she wants nothing to do with cleaning them.

I think it is hard to tell. I have been surprised on forums at how many times I just assumed someone was a guy only to find out I was wrong. I know some of the best stores by me are run by mostly women. I think you are starting to see more and more women in the hobby unfortunately my wife is not one of them.

I am a woman, and I love my aquariums! I have 5 currently up and running! My husband likes them almost as much as I do, but I was the one who started getting addicted!

I'm a member of 2 SW clubs that have get togethers/meetings. In the one that I consider to be in a more rural area, the members are split of a solid 50/50, m/f. In the one more local to me, I see more of a 75/25 split, m/f. I'm not a member of any FW clubs so no accurate comment there. For participating in a few different forums, I'd have to say it's another 50/50-m/f mix. Some I can tell are m/f and some make it known they're still not a dude 😜👍

Definitely more men overall, but we ladies and our tanks are not to be discounted!

I have to say in our local club it seems like mostly men. There are a bunch of active women but is seems like 3 or 4 men for every woman
