Cause they're quieter than kids?

Now seriously, because I love the worlds I can create for them. Because some of them seem to have such human quirks. Awesome personalities.

My hobby is keeping saltwater chemically balanced in a glass cube. Adding fish, invertibrates, corals, and sand makes it a real challenge.

Love the water. The ocean is so huge and we are so small. some fish are just so beautiful to look at, my personal favorite is the the powder blue tang.

I find it very relaxing. I also like the science involved and the challenge.

Used to keep a goldfish, watching him would really mellow me out. Now I have a son, 15mos, and he went nuts about the fish tanks at this local restaurant so... I have spent a lot of money, but am finding again that they relax me, and I love watching my boy watch them and try to say fish. "gish!"

It is very peaceful to swim in the reefs with the fishes and then be able to mimic those environments in your own house.

I keep them because I enjoy the challenge and the satisfaction. They're quite soothing to watch and fall asleep to the sound of the running water from the filters. Keeping fish is more of an addiction now

My boyfriend says that I am going to watch the nature channel again. I love taking a kitchen chair, having coffee in the morning after a long nights work, watching my tank, feeding the fish, doing water changes. I like seeing them interact, seeing how they look in there, and just everythign about it...

And why is it called boating instead? Or aeroplaning? or aquaplaning? Or con-planing?
