I love everything about my tanks, the research, the aquascaping, the PWC's, even testing my water, I don't mind any of it
Money is and always will be an issue with the hobby but I make due with what I have and have hopes of a deal coming my way in time. All good things come to those who wait, you just have to be patient.
^^This is how I feel.

I'd have to say the thing that saddens me most is bettas in tiny little bowls.

The most aggravating thing to me right now is my 5 gal fluval chi sitting on my end table waiting for saltwater, live rock and an awesome LED light. It's been sitting there waiting to be turned into a pico reef. But alas, there's always something and right now it's school shopping or the kids.

Is it weird that so far I'm loving water changes? Of course I have learned my lesson with too tall tanks and will never buy one over 20 inches again. I'll just have it custom made or something.

After reading these posts it seems like there are tons of people my age on here. Now we all just need to congregate in one spot. Or maybe start a group home? :lightbulb: that would be so cool.

I don't like having to filter myself to avoid defaulting to talking about fish (although it might end up working wonders for my social awkwardness once school starts up. :hopeful: ).

I also don't like my... I don't know the word. But basically I'm never satisfied with my decorations/stocking/equipment. I move things all the time, I'm actually worried it stresses my fish out. Maybe the word is ambition? Perfectionist tendencies?

On a more positive note, I LOVE plants.

LOL!! No it won't! Its going to be my pico reef. I don't think I can put any fish in that tiny tank. Maybe a neon blue goby. Its going to be a tank to satisfy my saltwater desire until I change my 55 to salt. My sleeper goby will be able to go in the 55. Lol! But I'll first have to get a 40 gal tank to move my freshwater stock into. More money... Lol!

I have this as well, I call it and blame it on my O.C.D
Optimistic Change .of. Decor

I am always finding new and better ways to change things around, hoping each time will be better than the last lol

Omg me too. Finally someone else has this problem. I literally can't go a week without buying something, adding something new, or rearranging.

I believe this is what's known in the aquarium hobby as being an aquarist. Lol. this is prolly most people in the hobby that stick with it and go past the simple 10g and 6 goldfish tank level.

Yeah kids, they are expensive lol. That's why having pets is better, they don't complain and give us unconditional love.
