I'm 23, and would have no advise cuz I barely have any fishy knowledge. :D...
I always take any advice with a grain of salt. I always try to keep an open mind about the advice I receive - sure, maybe some young kid with not much experience just looked something up on google, but perhaps the wise old man with years of experience in the hobby is stuck in his ways and doesn't realize that there may be other, better approaches that he's ignoring due to his experience. I think the best advice comes from an experienced person who has also done plenty of research outside of their own experiences in order to form a well-rounded opinion of the subject at hand. Of course, this goes for just about any topic, not just fishkeeping.
I'm 28, and dumbstruck that I'm about to have a '3' on the front of my age . Where did the time go? It feels like I was a wild and crazy college kid yesterday, then I realize I've been out of that phase of my life for the better part of a decade.
I've kept freshwater aquaruims for years, and got into marine about a year ago. Still learning! But I find a great way to learn is to teach... I'm careful about any advice I give and be sure to only do it if I feel confident that what I'm saying is right. I also offer plenty of caveats in case I say something wrong, to cover my rear
