I think the feeling is mutual. People don't understand the joys of this hobby till they actually try it. This isn't just giving a dog some food and water, we design ecosystems that perform the way nature would inside a glass box.
People don't often realize they have a living ecosystem thriving in their household, especially if it is something like a planted/reef tank.
Go back 30-40 years ago and keeping corals in a household aquarium long term was almost unheard of.
Makes you wonder the innovations and technology we will have in years to come.
