That's a great idea! Before I discovered the joy of fish I'd say I didn't want anything for birthdays or Christmas but now I know exactly what to ask for: everything I couldn't afford last trip to the lfs 😂

Money Can't Buy Happiness, But It Can Buy Fish Which Is Pretty Much The Same Thing

Fish ARE friends!

When the cory's getting air at night wakes you up, and subsequently check everything around the tank for jumpers, but then you have nightmares all night about missing the "jumper."

When you stay up late, eyes glued to the side of a 10 gallon tank, watching your friend's cherry barbs mating! And then freaking out when the female starts scattering eggs everywhere! You would have thought we were reacting to some kind of sports game. It was his first fish spawning, and he's only been fishkeeping for like a month! (He's had some good help.... )

You go to the Butterfly Pavilion and spend almost as much time inside looking at all the fish tanks SW & FW as the butterflies.

You get as a excited as a kid at Christmas because you get to pet a big Horseshoe Crab and a couple of starfish and a Huge Strawberry Hermit Crab.

You know almost every name of the fish and inverts and many of the corals!!!

Lol know it all! Even though, at the SC aquarium I guess I was pretty annoying to the family when I was calling out all the fish I knew lol.

If whenever you drive past the First Merit Bank you think their logo looks like a Boeseman's rainbow.
