How Long do you Watch Your Fish Tank Every Day?

I probably watch mine for about 30 mintues a day plus the time I spend looking at it for short bits of time while on the computer.

Morning, probably 10 minutes while I wake up, 5-10 minutes 2 or 3 times a day while I'm in and out of my room. And 30+ minutes at night. It helps that the tank is in my bedroom.

Pretty much most of the time that I'm home. I have plenty of tanks to watch, and they're more entertaining than tv.

Same here! Where I sit, the tv is to my left and the tank is off to the right. Guess which direction I look in more often. Often my boyfriend will think I'm staring at him, but then he will realize I'm just staring over his shoulder at the tank. I would guess between all the tanks I spend a few hours a day just watching them.

I don't have an exact number but it is a lot. I have three tanks (one more on the way) and I just love proping up my recliner where I have my 55 gallon facing me and then over on the adjacent wall I have my 33 gallon. It is the ultimate relaxation tool, Nature. One of the best investments I have ever made! Tank on fish fanatics!

My downstairs tanks, about 40 minutes a day. While I'm on my exercise bike I look at them.
My upstairs tanks, a few hours.

5-10 mins each feeding. My tank is further down the same wall my TV is on, so I'm often watching it during commercials or boring bits of a show.
