I was a baby I always have had aquariums around my dad had a dental office with huge aquariums. From a very early age I was taught how to care for and appreciate our fish. Not only did my father teach me how to appreciate fish but he taught me how to fish also. I have had an intrigue or romance with nature and wildlife ever since. I also have Aspergers or high functioning autism which adds to this intrigue. When I'm out doors I get lost in the biological systems and often lose track of time. I'm 23 and getting ready to get a bachelors in biology and then I may go into either aquatic biology or dentistry.

I was like five or six and my Aunt gave us a five gallon tank and some guppies and I've been hooked ever since.

My home had many aquaria in it before I was born, so they have always been around (my grandfather began keeping aquaria in the early 1930's, and my father in the 1950's, so aquariums were a standard part of our life)...but I received the first tank of my very own when I was 4. Although I was young, since my father had always made me a part of tank maintenance, I was quite capable of taking care of an aquarium on my own.

It was a slate-bottomed, steel-framed 10 gallon tank with a stainless-steel hood, occupied by three Corydoras julii, four fancy guppies, four neon tetra, and 3 silver hatchetfish. Filtration was via a small, plastic, air-driven box filter in the corner....heat was from a hang-on tank submersible glass heater (which was never on during the day, as the incandescent tube under the steel hood warmed the tank pretty good).

I was 13. Got it for my 8th grade graduation. I saw a fish tank at the doctors or dentist or something and I had to have a tank of my own
