Why do you keep fish?

Why do you keep fish? Is it their cute fishie faces, the challenge or what?

I personally keep them because they're soo darn cute and fascinating. And I like to "collect" species :P

I'm allergic to furry critters and I'm not a big fan of birds or reptiles.

I hate to garden outside; I love the colors of fish; healthy hobby; they don't talk back or argue (at least mine don't!). And last but not least I love nature in all it's forms and this is a good way to have it close to me so I can appreciate it.

Each aquarium is its own little world, and it allows you to temporarily escape from the larger one.

They relax me. I guess seeing fish swimming around the tank is interesting plus they make fertilizer for my plants.. I like gardening but gardening with fish is awesome.
