I was 46 years old. I was given a Common Pleco for free by a blood lab, when my Grandson Casey was 4. He had just been diagnosed with Aspergers Syndrome. The Aquarium works wonders for helping him to self calm and relax. So we kind of got it together and we've been keeping fish for almost 7 years now. It's a great hobby to share, it's become great family time.
We named the Placo Eddie Fisher and every fish since then has been given a name.
We lost Eddy to ick 5 years later, along with the entire community tank he was in. It was really rough on all of us. He was very special. he would come up to the surface to be petted when we would come over to the tank. I don't mean a touch or two, it was always a good 5-10 min. of petting Eddie, before he'd swim off. I don't think we will ever have another quite like him.

Sometime within the 5-10 years area I had a betta in a bowl named Blueberry, cried when he died. I buried him in my backyard at my old house. What I consider my first real tank is my SW reef, which I started at 18. Got the tank for my birthday, and then the rest of the stuff I got way giftcards to petsmart and stuff the christmas before as well, I had it planned out

Now its about 1yr old and all is going fairly well for what knowledge I started with
