I keep fish because... I work anywhere from 60-100 hours a week and sometimes 16 hour days from 6-12 days in a row. And when I get home, there's nothing I love better than just sitting and looking into my tanks- it relaxes me.

I keep fish for several reasons:
a) I see a lot of death in my line of work, and my aquarium reminds me that despite the amount of death there is, there is an even greater amount of life surrounding me.
b) The water and beautiful tails are very relaxing.
c) My fish need me. I have really low self-esteem. Beyond what most people could even imagine. It's a terrible secret that I keep. It's a self-esteem booster to successfully keep an aquarium.
d) Beauty. Beauty. Beauty. (Okay...and cuteness).

Thanks for letting me share.

I love being able to watch my fish grow. Also my step daughter loves it. She names the new fish and know all there habits. I even got my fiancée into them. Now he's interested and reading all about keeping fish. So I guess I have a few reasons. Oh and I also love the fact that I can use it as an alternative tv and centerpiece.

My kids love them. There's nothing like having a not-quite 2 year old say "hi" and "night night" to the "pretty fishies" each day, and it helps teach my nearly 6 yr old to be responsible and respect life.
