It's fascinating.
Its hard to identify my cherry barbs but i love to watch them

I enjoy caring for another living creature. And I love sitting and watching them swim and interact with each other and their environment.

I love waking up in the morning and having a cup of coffee watching my 55g have breakfast. That's the best part of waking up, not Folgers.

At the end of a rough day, fighting fires, extricating people from cars, saving lives and yes even the occasional cat in the tree. After all that... I like to come home, sit on the couch, play some music and just watch the crew in the tank doing there thing because in that tank they really don't have a care in the world... It's really a great stress release.

Best part for me is when my fish begs for food with its big eyes.
Kind Regards,

I never really get a zen feeling from the tanks. I'm always thinking of what's going on, where to place stuff, what health the fish are in. But I like it that way.
I only get zenned-out when I see other people's tanks or pictures of aquascapes online, because I'm not the one taking care of it iwagumi scapes make me feel so sleepy!
