Sitting back and watching what I've created. I love having tanks and creating something beautiful that myself, family and friends can enjoy.

The cost of everything. There is always something I need. Lol.

I find it amazing how we can keep miniature Eco-systems alive. I love all the life a simple tank has in it-from the small snails in the substrate, shrimp scurrying around and picking at food, to the fishes swimming together. I also love how I can watch my tanks for hours at a time, and learn something new each time

One part I could live with out, would have to be having random deaths occur. I hate it when you can't find a cause for a death.

I think you are doing something horribly wrong if you end up with water in your mouth during PWCs.

Most rewarding part is breeding and selling fish to other hobbyists.

I could do without filter maintenance. I don't mind water changes but tearing canisters apart every couple weeks gets old.

For me all of it has been rewarding. I have enjoyed learning how to keep the best environment possible for my goldfish. It is a little world I have created for them. A place I know I have made a difference in.

What I could do without is despite trying to do everything correctly sometimes one of my fish will still get sick.

The most rewarding part was after I completed my first fish less cycle.

The worst has to be trying to sleep with a noisy filter in your room.

Interacting with my blood parrots when I hand feed them......

Seeing freeswimming krib fry school with kuhli loaches......

Watching my corys spit eggs against the tank walls......

Seeing all the little red cherry shrimplets that I didn't know I had racing around the tank.....

Watching my ghost shrimp hitch a ride on the back of a mystery snail......

Observing the natural self-preservation instinct that newborn fry show when left to survive in the community tank......

Just sitting and watching...... my tanks are my zen
