Watching your tanks?

So sometimes I enjoy just laying on my couch and looking up

This is what I am looking at, i could lay here and just watch my fish swimming and interacting.....sometimes I can sit with my face level with the tank and just stare.....I find it quite relaxing and enjoying!!! But when my roommate or someone comes in the room and asks what I'm doing I feel stupid saying just watching the fish....lol

Just wondering if some other people feel the same or if they just like lazing around watching their fish too?

I'm completely with you Niki. I do the same. Problem with me is, because it's so relaxing, I usually end up falling asleep doing it. 'Others' don't understand and think we are nuts, I know my girlfriend thinks I am....lol

It's what separates us from the rest. When everyone in my house is plopped down watching TV, I'm stretched out on the floor watching my fish instead.

I'm glad there's other people out there that do the same as me! My girlfriend also thinks I'm nuts because I'll just sit on the chair by my fish tank and watch the fish happily swimming about! I find it so relaxing just watching them.

I have my fish where I can see them from my bed. Problem is, between my tigers, serpaes, and cories, I have too much to watch to go to sleep. Then my leaf fish will drift by on a mission.....then my rubber nose pleco will come out, then a tiger will stray into my red fin sharks turf....too much to watch.

I have a tank in my home office. One of the office chairs' air suspension is broken so it sinks to its lowest setting. Wife wanted to throw it out but it is the PERFECT height for viewing fish. Many hours spent there.
My other tank is in my bedroom about 4-5' from my side of the bed. Planted shrimp tank. Very relaxing. Slight him from the filter and the occasional trickle of water. Shrimp mulling around just doing their thing. Did I say very relaxing? Sometimes fall asleep watching it.

I'm almost done setting up a tank about 2 feet away from my bed that i'll be able to view lying down. No idea what i'm stocking it with yet but it will have a moonlight and some nocturnal fish. Hopefully it helps me clear my racing mind when i try to sleep. My familyand friends think i'm crazy just for the amount of tanks i have now. The payoff for people thinking you are crazy is when your shy fish hide when anyone else is watching but dance like nobody is watching while you stare at the tank. Even my Kuhli loach gather to beg for food when i watch them now.
