I'm almost 18 and I'm brand new to this hobby, but I did get some weird looks at my LFS... My friend has been doing aquariums since she was 13 though, so I think you're at a pretty normal, in-between age to be in this hobby.

I'd ask to speak to the manager next time. That's terrible customer service, if that ever happened to me I wouldn't go back... And I'd make sure none of my family or friends went either.

You were buying fishfood... She acted like u were buying cigarettes or something. I wouldn't have acted up, but I would have def gotten her name and had a nice talk with the manager about her.

Sorry u had to go through that

When I first got my 10g the girl that was helping me put bright pink gravel in the shopping cart and I was like "umm don't the fish feel more comfortable if it looks natural?" She said it didn't really matter so I got blue gravel instead of the pink. Long story short I have blue gravel for sale and I always suck up black sand during water changes.

Lets see I really got into the hobby when I was 10, but i had fish in the house long before that. we always had interesting pets when i was little. my moms to thank for that andy dad just said we were crazy but went along with it. Anyway my parents bought me a 45 for christmas when I was 10 or 11. I was very active jn caring for my fish. I kept a small group of mbuna but still kinda went by my own trial and error of keeping them. Then once I hit high school between sports and everything else the tank kind of got lost. Then I meet my girlfriend and we decided we wanted a pet. We went to look for fish but ended up with a snake. Now six snakes later we got into fish. We revamped my 45. She picked up a 36. And then we built from there. Soon after I got my 125 and moved my Africans.
