Last night I ate dinner while watching my fish tank.

Hey guys and gals...

Two weeks ago I took a trip to Lancaster (That Fish/Pet Place) and purchased some plants to fill some open spaces in my tank (I had to go, I only have a Petsmart in my area)... I am very pleased with the way it came out and I was having a stress filled day, so I cooked my brown rice with some chicken breast and poured a glass of wine and enjoyed the view. I think that we should all take a moment to look at the masterpiece that we have all put so much time in to create. I sometime take it for granted, but yesterday I got to watch my plants sway and my fish swim and today I feel like a better person. So I want everyone that reads this post to go home and enjoy that TANK!!

It has been well documented that watching fish in a tank actually lowers your blood pressure and releases calming chemicals into your bloodstream.

One way is to watch it before bed with no distraction from the TV and no room lights, just the tank lights on.

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

My wife and I spend at least 2 hours a night just sitting on the couch talking while looking at the fish tank.

True story: My wife was sitting in the living room looking at the tank while eating lunch the other day. I thought she was eating mozzarella sticks. Turns out it was fish sticks. I'm just glad the fish have no idea what one of their caretakers was eating in front of them.

I can attest to that. I always feel better after just sitting and watching my koi. I love laying on my bed and watching my fish before I sleep. It's so relaxing. Combine that with the purr of a cat, and I'm out like a light.

I love the message of this thread. Sit back and enjoy your fish. It's why you got into this hobby in the first place!!

I watch my fish while doing my homework. Not good for my focus. xD
Must be just me, watching my fish tank is pretty annoyingl. It just peeves me off that all the cories do is run up and down the glass! The betta are calming though.

taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
