I love my fish!

Does anyone else out there get teased because they love their fish?

To me, fish are much loved members of the family, and as living creatures should be cared for in the best way I can. To others, they are a cheap pet that is easily replaced :-(

I am new to fish and am surprised by the attitudes of some.

I absolutely love my fish! I'm on vacation in Mexico, and no one here understands my obsession with wanting to snorkel and see the reefs (I know, not salt water thread, but there is no one with me who understands). I also love the fish that are in my 45 gallon, and in my parents 55gallon. I hate having to flush any of the rare dead ones, but it makes me happy knowing that they always life longer then expected.

I understand. I hate when I go on trips because I am worried that the people I get to take care of them think " they are just fish". No! They are awesome!

It is great to meet fellow fishie lovers!

So glad I found this forum.

My fishies were named by my little niece and nephew and include Spotty, Mr Stripes, Lightening McQueen and Goldie

I don't name my fish (I wouldn't remember them anyway) but I give them the best care I am capable of.
Being vegan I'm used to people rolling their eyes and shaking their heads at me.
I take my responsibility for all these little lives seriously.
Spending a good proportion of my pay on fish keeping provides others with the pleasure of their smug disdain, but not as much pleasure as I get from fish keeping
