My parents are fine with having four aquariums in the house, because I buy everything and take care of it myself, and they don't have to do anything.

You know your a fish nerd as a mother when you're 9 year old boy doesn't want to go into lfs anymore. He also says fish are boring. I always tell him to have respect because they were here before humans.

Lol I love this one! Just like me and my little brother when i want to go to PetCo across from Bestbuy where my parents are going, I usually get him to go with me though.
I'm only allowed to keep 2 tanks running right now, plus a hermit crab tank. If I didn't have siblings, then i'd have more because my mom says it's not fair for them to see me get all these pets (I hate referring to them as pets) and that they don't get anything. Well, newsflash, if they actually wanted an aquarium or anything then they wouldn't be sitting around saying my fish are stupid, and then it's my fault again for them not having anything, and the cycle continues. Sorry for the rant, I'm sure others face the exact same problem I do.

I'm the only one in my family that has ever owned an aquarium besides my father back in the day owned a saltwater when he was stationed in Guam, tells me his octopus always tried to escape lol. I would love to have a family member that took even a slight interest in fish keeping.

When I go to the lfs with my 4 year old, I can't get anything done or look at anything or have a conversation with my fish guy because she goes crazy looking at, touching, wanting to feed, wanting to buy, wanting to show me EVERYTHING. Mama look! Mama come here! Maaaammaaa!

4 year old to fish guy; "Excuse me, we want to buy a "uney goami" (honey gourami), then has a melt down when I tell her we can't get a gourami because the tank isn't cycled. Sobbing in fish store; "whhhhhy does it take so darn long for the tank to cycle!!??
She also gets really excited when I feed the fish blood worms. "Mama! He just sucked it right up!"

I almost wish my kid was bored of fish, lol. Then I could go to the store myself!

When your puffer seems a little glum and you immediately do a water change, and when do a water change on your main tank because your cory's aren't showing full coloration on their dorsal fins.....my fish life. By the way, your lucky to have someone so interested in fish, especially a kid. My mom is the only one who will come into my room and even knows that I really like my fish. My dad and my brothers barely even know what kind of fish I have, and the one they do know is catfish. Whatever as long as I enjoy it lol.
