Do More Men Than Women Have Aquariums?

Seems to me that more guys have aquariums. When I'm searching this site or U-Tube what I find is mostly guys talking about their fish tank. Are there any women besides me that enjoy having an aquarium?

Yes in my experience more men have tanks. Our swap meets are 10:1 and the clubs meetings are even less. It's our desire to control things. Plus we always like to brag ours is bigger than yours

My GF has a breathtaking saltwater set up that makes me jealous everything I see it.

You're not alone! Though I agree, it seems like it's more men in the hobby...at least around me. But then, there's not many people I come across around here that are into fish--male or female. I'm thrilled if I come across someone who is!

We have mostly men in my club, but we have a strong contingent of women.

If one subscribes to the theory that men tend to care less about the appearance of their basements, rec rooms, etc., it's understandable why more men suffer from Multiple Tank Syndrome than women.

In my experience, I have met more men with tanks than women. If you believe guys like big things, it makes sense why a bunch of guys have huge fish haha.

Also, with the girls I know, a lot more don't want to deal with cleaning the fish tank or the time put into it. I think it might just be because the guys I know will fixate on things, so aquarium maintenance or rescaping or the other long chores aren't so bad.

DISCLAIMER: Sorry if I offended, just observations and I in no way am trying to further gender stereotypes nor am I stating that I believe said stereotypes
