I've gotten that, too. Along with "why do you change so much water" and "I thought fish were supposed to be easy pets, why not just stick to something simple like a goldfish bowl." Lots of my coworkers think I'm nuts when I mention how many tanks I have. Thankfully they don't know exactly how many I have going now... or how many I will have running soon.

Definitely the ignorant people, especially if they make a living selling the fish they know nothing about. Besides that, I'd say the costs. I am now juggling obsessive fish hobby + first pregnancy (gunna be so expensive) instead of fish hobby + student. THE STRUGGLE NEVER ENDS!! Lol

When my sister feeds my fish without asking my permission... This isn't the first time the fish have been overfed. And then she feeds them again on the days I'm trying to fast them to recover from being overfed. -_- I'm considering selling her, does anyone want her?

How is she with water changes? Also, is local pick up a possibility? It would be cheaper for me to drive to pick her up rather than shipped.
