Having to special order everything. Back when I was younger, pet shops sold parts to all the filters they sold, from air pumps diaphrams, to parts for dynaflows and magnums and the supreme hobs, all sorts of O-rings, strainers, impellers. Now they just sell the unit. If something goes wrong , need to wait a week or 2 or go online and find it and hope whoever your buying it from sends you the right model part.

has to be, without a single doubt, the ignorance and clear misunderstanding that non-hobbyists express to me. moreover its 10x worse when I tell them that I have 4 tanks in my home with 2 more sitting empty...... clearly im an immature adult that likes "stupid" goldfish too much....

I like the 'my plants were picked by a native guy from a waterfall with a rainbow over it'

That was good.

Waiting for my tank to cycle and generally feeling idiotic about every aspect from filter to substrate because everyone I talk to has their own 'right way' and they are all different. It's very confusing. Thanks for holding my hand fish forum.

Oh yeah, that is annoying... you should see the look I get when I say I have seven plus five that aren't set up yet. But hey, to breed you have to have a lot of tanks.

This is why I live for garage sales. Somebody buys a huge tank because they want to try keeping fish. Spend hundreds of dollars on new equipment and fish. Soon the fish die(sad), then they sell everything. Most just want it gone, so usually it's dirt cheap or they say 'give me your best offer.' I'm not really one to low-ball people, especially when I know how much something costs, but when it's *obo* it's fair game.
