What's your story?

What's the story behind your first aquarium? How old were you? What did you have? Why an aquarium and not a puppy or kitten?

I was very young...maybe 5...had a simple goldfish in a bowl one fake plant and some colored gravel! It sat up on my dresser that at that point was a little taller than I was...the worst part is, I remember trying to pet it...Awww to be 5 again! Ignorance is bliss...unless you're a fish I guess

The first "tank" my parents ever bought me was when I was like...3 or something. It was a BOWL shaped like a gumball machine with a little comet goldfish. Haha we had kitties and puppies too. I've always lived in a zoo.

My first tank was when I was 5, It was a 10 gallon with 2 male betta (blue and red), but I didnt last long........ I was more interested in fish than dogs or cats, never really asked for one.

My first was when I was around 10. It was a small plastic goldfish tank that I kept a goldfish in that I won at a fair. It actually lived for over 5 years but ended up silver! Lol
