I think I was eight, if having a Betta in a bowl counts. Now I have a ten gallon with a Betta and sm starting a new twenty nine gallon community with:

6 zebra danios
6 male guppies
4 panda cories
1 bristle nose pleco

In loving memory of Pansa Princess, the greatest horse who ever lived. May you rest in peace.

My dad always had tropical fish when I was growing up, and I always wanted my own. I got a plastic tank with glass fish instead on my 10th birthday when I was 13 we adopted next doors goldfish because they were going to flush them!
But my first real tank that is all mine I got this Christmas, at the age of 24 so glad I didn't have one before because I wouldn't have known how to care for them properly, and now that I'm older, I'm so excited about learning all the science and disease and stuff!

I had a 3 gallon FW tank with a Betta, dwarf frog, and some sort of snail when I was around 8 years old. I had that for two years. I didn't get a fish tank again until I was 22 and got a saltwater tank.

Well I've always had that goldfish in a bowl, or a betta. And when I was little(er) I saw my uncles aquarium and the way home wouldn't stop saying fish! Thats definitely where I got my love for fish from. I did get my ten gallon when I was twelve/11. Now at thirteen I'm setting up a SW nano tank! (dwarf seahorses!)
