What's your story?

What's the story behind your first aquarium? How old were you? What did you have? Why an aquarium and not a puppy or kitten?

I was very young...maybe 5...had a simple goldfish in a bowl one fake plant and some colored gravel! It sat up on my dresser that at that point was a little taller than I was...the worst part is, I remember trying to pet it...Awww to be 5 again! Ignorance is bliss...unless you're a fish I guess

The first "tank" my parents ever bought me was when I was like...3 or something. It was a BOWL shaped like a gumball machine with a little comet goldfish. Haha we had kitties and puppies too. I've always lived in a zoo.

My first tank was when I was 5, It was a 10 gallon with 2 male betta (blue and red), but I didnt last long........ I was more interested in fish than dogs or cats, never really asked for one.

My first was when I was around 10. It was a small plastic goldfish tank that I kept a goldfish in that I won at a fair. It actually lived for over 5 years but ended up silver! Lol

When I was seven I had a little .5 gallon tank that I kept a goldfish in. I had won it at a fair! It lived for two years! And with the amount I fed it, I'm amazed it lived for two weeks!

It's probably because our parents helped us and made it look easy! Then we grow up and try it again, and well... We figure out just how much they were helping us.

Depends on how fast you find this place I guess. Or how good your LFS is.
