I had goldfish in a bowl when I was 5 or so, but I don't think that counts. My first "real" tank was inspired by a visit to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago when I was 12. I got it after I returned to Minneapolis and have kept them continiously ever since.

2 1/2 gal., guppies and probably a couple of tetras and platys. Hard to remember for sure as that was in 1946.

My first "big" tank was a 10 gal. I got for Christmas later that year. (It was big back then.) My parents were reluctant as they didn't think I'd stick with it.

16... a birthday present that I begged for, found a great deal on Craigslist: $50 - 2. 10g tanks, azoo backup air pump, API test kit, 2 super cool light from doctor Foster and Smith (new $125EACH) spounge filters, air stones, siphon, 3 heaters for 10g tanks, and a bunch more miscellaneous things... I knew very little about fish but I was a kid in a candy store... and my mom was happy when she found out how much all of it was worth
