Hi all,

I'm a long time lurker, but here's my first post! I’ve been in the aquarium hobby for 10 or so years and have been breeding freshwater shrimp for ~8 years. I’ve cared for both salt and fresh tanks from 5g to 180g. Now in graduate school at the University of Connecticut, I’m working on a project trying to understand buying habits/desires (aside from my own) of aquarium hobbyists to see where the trade is going.

If you have 3-5 minutes, would you answer the questions on my survey for some preliminary data?

I’d be happy to answer any questions as well!

Hello friend! Welcome to the forum!

What's the data for may I ask?

I'm in the middle of filling it out but it says "What colors look best in your aquarium" is it talking about fish, substrate, plants? All of it?

I also think that the question "Where do you learn about new aquarium animals" should be multiple choice as people can learn from multiple places not just one. Or state, "Where are you most likely to learn..."

Hey! Thanks for the welcome and for filling out the survey!

In the spring I took a course in entrepreneurship and evaluating markets. Since I've been in the hobby for a while, I figured I'd choose aquariums as my topic. The course largely was based on going out and doing interviews with customers in stores (or wherever for your chosen market). I thought it was really interesting, so I figured I'd throw a survey together and try to get a broader reach (more states in the US, more countries, bigger age range, etc).

I appreciate the question revision suggestions as well!
