What's Your Favorite Part of Fish Keeping?

Does anyone have any particular parts of this hobby that they like the most?
For me it would have to be feeding the fish, watching them grow, and learning what fish likes what.

I also enjoy that. I often find myself watching my fish for 2-3 hrs at a time.

I also love figuring out their habits. I also love seeing fish become more perky or behave naturally after I do something they like, such as add more floating plants and hiding spaces. It makes me feel good

I enjoy the feeling of accomplishment when a tank has finally cycled and it is holding strong.... unfortunately, i have yet to have that feeling

Yeah! I love trying to identify each of my strawberry rasboras, which isn't as hard as it sounds. Each one seems to have their own little markings, as well as their quirks (for example, one tends to hang out near the surface more than the rest, and one feels a little more dominant and frequently chases the rest (except for the one that hangs out on the surface. o_O I wonder if Boraras naevus create some sort of pecking order like female bettas. It's fascinating.

It's super weird, but I love sticking my finger in the tank and having my goldies nibble it. It makes giggle like a 5 year old girl.

Haha! I like putting my fingers into my guppy tank. They swarm around me and nibble on me.
