How Long Do You Look?

How much time do you spend each day just watching your fish?

Not cleaning, water testing or maintenance.

How much time do you really spend just sitting and watching them do their thing?

I can see one tank from my chair, and that gets stared at for about 45 minutes a day. My other tank across the room gets watched for about fifteen minutes when I feed them. Longer on weekends.

I watched two of my fish breeding today, and if I hadn't taken the time to just sit and watch the tank, I'd have missed it.

My Bio Cube more at night under the moonlights which is nice. It's in my bedroom caddy cornered so it's nice at night.

My Cichlid tank pretty much whenever as its in the living room. I have the lights set to come on at 3:30pm since I'm not home during the day no point. I like to spend an hour at night before the lights go out to enjoy them.

Mines in the living room so I can look at it all day, it's better than watching the tv

I think we all need group therapy. But if they had a tank in the waiting room, we would all be discussing it. But to answer the question, about 30-40 minutes or longer.

Oodles!! Lots of tanks, one in every room just about - but I have a few favorites I enjoy watching. Missy my old chocolate cichlid, the Labeotropheus Fuelleborni, the young chocolate cichlids, haps sp Ruby Greens, the christams fulus tank is in a place that I just can't stop for a minute or 2 and watch them and the one bedroom tank of guppies and platys since when I can't sleep I lay there and watch them
