when did you realize you'd "made it" as a fish person?
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. :-D

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? :lol:

nice means you are becoming competent and aware of things that pertain to aquatics...its much better than being able to recite the problems of say a trivial pop icon....good for you....

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 ...... :)

I realised that I was a fish person when I was given the 20 gallon to keep my own fish. Im obviously doing something right if ive had chocolate gouramis for 10 months:roll::lol:

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.
