I'm 23 and am a hairdresser and am going back to school to get my degree for Vet Tech.
All my life I've always had something to do with some sort of animal. The family had fish since before I can remember, I bred and showed guinea pigs, rabbits, and horses in 4H and for national competitions since I was 10, and have always had dogs. When I moved away from home a few years ago I couldn't keep any of my furry friends with me anymore (other than my 2 dogs) so I decided I would buy own tank since I couldn't claim my dad's as mine anymore. Anyways, since that first 20 I've become obsessed. I started breeding livebearers not too long after that and now am working on harder species like bettas, bristlenose plecos, and am getting my first 2 pair of German Blue Rams this week.

Anyways, I've been doing some minor selling of my spawns and plants to people I know and on Aquabid and Ebay, and am dying to get a room to devote to a fish room so I can get some more income from the whole breeding operation I'd love to set up.

I'm a stay at home mom of two 17&9. Currently running 4 tanks with one in the "brainstorming" phase. Also starting my hand at plants with the possibility of a bowl/vase. I was introduced to fish by my father at a young age. (He kept pirañas) I was reintroduced to the hobby with my eldest child and have been "dabbling" ever since.

I'm 28. Have my BS in chemistry and work as a industrial waste water Technician for a major city in the USA. For those who don't know what that is, I make sure companies follow the clean water act and do special projects as well like checking to make sure storm drain water is clean going to the creeks and streams that empty into the rivers of the city. I started the hobby as a kid with goldfish from a fare and then moved to tropical. I stopped and then one day went back to it as I had a spare tank and though my office could use one. So now I have a 10 gallon planted at work, and 45 gallon planted in the works and ultimate plan to get a 90 gallon reef tank setup in my rec room when done remodeling.

I'm 20 and I'm a nuclear operator in the United States Navy. I had fish as a kid until I was 14. In January I talked my husband into getting fish. We started off with two 10 gallons, and a few weeks later bought a 55 gallon community tank. Now we're working on a 55 gallon African cichlid tank.

I'm 24, I am also a student, mother and wife. I have a 4 year old son. I also go to school full time working on my bachelors degree in paralegal studies. My husband says I should go to law school but not so sure. I am thinking of taking the LSAT and going from there.

As of right now I have one fish tank, was tropical and now is going to cichlids. Husband brought some home for me as a surprise, now that I have them I do love them. Although now know they are agressive they leave my gourami alone pretty well. I do have rehoming plans though for the gourami if things do get too bad. I also have a 5 gallon tank on the way, planning it for a betta fish. Will be my first attempt with sand, would love to have it planted but have not done enough research on that yet so fake plants will have to do for now.

My name is George and I am 21. (22 on Saturday!). I am married and have a 16 month old son. I got into fish randomly one day while at Walmart. I bought a fish bowl a glofish and a black moor......which died overnight. Since then I have done tons of research and started a few threads here and currently have a successful RCS 10g and a successful 55g community. I plan to turn my community into a cichlid tank some day but am in no rush. I also want to have a tank big enough to house an oscar or two but I am faaar away from that goal. I work as a tech in the emergency room at a local hospital. I am currently in school studying to be a nurse. My hobbies are my son, fish, healthcare, and a garden I plan on starting soon. This forum has really been a great help to my fish obsession. Nice to meet you all.

I learned almost everything i know about fish from my dad. When I was little, my parents got me a goldfish. Then my dad (who has always liked fish tanks) got a 20 gallon community freshwater tank. About three years ago, he pretty much just left for work and came home with a 130 gallon tank! so I have kinda been doing the fish tank thing my whole life... But I just finally got my OWN 10 gallon tank, which I hope to upgrade to at least a 30 gallon.
Oh an I also work part time helping my seeing teacher teach another class

30 we have a construction company. My son was really loving the glofish at walmart one day so my wife and I got a 29g stand combo from a small lfs. Fast forward a few months and I end up here trying to figure what my floor psi limit is.

We have had hamsters, gerbils, turtles, hermit crabs, and frogs. My oldest wants a snake, but We've put our feet down there. No snakes!!

I ll set the bar higher so no one has to be the 'oldest'. I m 57 & work as a veterinary technician/supervisor in a busy 3 doctor mixed animal practice. I recently sold my horses & set up a 50g FW planted tank. My husband raises tortoises, we have 6 cats & a silly Doberman. Have 2 more tanks ready to set up. This thread was a fun idea!
