When you get into an argument with your classmates about whether rams have horns or not until you realize that they're talking about mountain sheep and have probably never heard the word "Mikrogeophagus"...

I honestly think this dream is exclusive to me, but whenever I go hiking I think of how cool it would be to find a pond full of aquarium fish that I recognize.

Not just you. I remember being absolutely floored to find a pond in Virginia full of fish that looked like plain guppies, turned out to be mosquitofish! Kept a handful of them in a 20 gallon for a while.

When you're watching a movie/TV show and the first thing you notice is that aquarium in the background with only the corner showing.

Same! A couple shots of the show Dexter have a tank in the background, and I always wonder what's in them, what happens after to the tanks after the show is filmed, and what kind of filtration they have

Same! While watching "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" all I can pay attention to is the planted discus tank in the background.

If while in Petco you help steer a newbie away from some donated clown loaches. I happened to over hear one of the fish managers(who I know is a good lady and does all she can) trying to persuade a total newb trying to stack these six inch clown loaches in a ten gallon. I quickly interrupted about how big they get and how aggressive ( yes I know, I lied but what can you do????) They are. Said her neons would be lunch lol! Thankfully she left with tetras.

Oh there are tons of them here. They just won't die. I kept them before I knew what I was doing, back when a water change every few months was "enough". They thrived.

YES SAME. I always try to see what's in it and they always look overstocked and have fake plants
