Why do you love aquariums?

This may have been covered before! Just wondering why everyone loves aquariums? What keeps you motivated to put the time and money into this hobby?

Personally, I just love the fact that I have created a "home" for my fish. I am responsible for their food, health and happiness! Also, I am amazed by fish and what they can do for the mind!

I'm a visual person, and I love to tinker with anything.

I love fish biology and behavior, and aquariums allow me to examine both in my own home.

And I like my fire shrimp too. :P

For me it's the total relaxation that I get when I sit in front of the tank and watch. Our tank is in a room all by itself. Sitting in front of the tank is a black leather reclining/massaging chair with a foot stool.

The fish swimming back and forth and just watching them do different things relaxes me to the point of sleep. If I have a hard day at work I just sit down there for about a half hour and I'm good to go.

I find my wife there most of the time. She loves it.

I really like William's answer.
Aside from that, it gives me something to talk to all of you about
