I think it happened to me today. A friend of mine has multiple tanks, and has had fish for years... but today, I told him something he didn't know.

He said "something's wrong angelina jolie... her eye is all bulgey." (yes, he named a fish angelina jolie).

I said "Hmm. Could be popeye."

he said "Popeye? what's that?"

I explained...googled pictures... he said he thinks that's exactly what it is.

YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!! I am a fish person now? wait... is that something to be proud of?

I didn't rest until i made it to the six month mark without losing any fish or having any diseases in my tanks.

Not that I rest now with all the water changes but ...... :)

For me it was when I was able to answer questions with confidence for people that come on here looking for help and know I was telling them right and then being backed up by others on here that know way more than I do like Byron and Aunt Kymmie just to name two of many.
