I've always wanted a fish tank. When I was a kid, I won a Goldfish at a school Halloween party. My folks kept it in a bowl, something I would never do now. His name was Swimmy, he lived for 7 years, in a bowl. Amazing considering.
A year and two months ago, I bought a 20 gallon. It was then I started to really learn about the hobby, and the complexity that comes with it. Then I got a 10 gallon. Then I had a couple of Bettas for a while, then 'upgraded' to a 5.5 gallon shrimp tank, its cycling now, no shrimp yet.
It seems to never end. I have to make it a point, every time I visit a fish store, not to look at the new 125 gallon tanks, or I'll end up with it in the back of my car lol!
I feel like a kid in a candy store at the LFS! I always want more! More tanks! More fish! More plants! I can't stop, lol! I'm running out of places to put them, lol! Soon my whole house will be full of tanks, lol! I'll have to quit my job so I can take care of my tanks!! LOL!!
What's your story? How do you feel about the hobby?
