+100000 I love spending the weekend getting my hands wet changing something

I'm always telling my mom how my hobby isn't easy lol because there's no one to talk to and exchange experience, or just talk fish. This conversation ends up with her telling me to start a fish club in school, and me saying that the only person who would join is this kid who has a 36 gallon and the only question he would have is how to grow algae I don't even want to think about the people who cram their bettas in bowls. But I guess that's why there's this forum, where we can talk to other people who share the same interests

I'm lucky I have two brothers and dad that are in the hubby so I can talk to them (though their opinions often are so varied there is no point to talk to them). But my wife likes the fish but she just always says they are too complicated and she doesn't get it.

My friends at school always ask if I have a shark and I say yes its a rainbow shark but no matter what they don't listen to me and the same people ask me the same questions every day.

Today I saw a huge tank with a fake coral reef and it was stocked with... cichlids? What's the point of making a freshwater tank into a fake saltwater tank?

You just stated the point. A freshwater low maintenance tank in a living room with lots of color in the rockwork that looks sorta saltwater. And cichlids pull off the saltwater fish colors. Hey, maybe not for everyone but I've enjoyed it.
