    Hi,
    just to get a nice, 'lighter', start to the weekend.
    What do you like about this hobby?

    I like the diversity of it, i.e. the different types of animals, as well as the technical stuff behind it all.

    If I had to compare to another pet. I'd say, the don't "mess" your house. They don't make a noise. You can leave them at home when you're away. They make your house look beautiful. You can have a whole eco system in you living room.

    spending money on skimmers, pumps, salt and electricity lets not forget test kits, light bulbs, additives and making RO water. Then looking at the tank inhabitants and knowing that its worth it

    i like the diversity of so many different creatures with so many different permeations all in the same area. How you need to know about so many different things all isolated from each other but with a common thread running through them. I also love the beauty of creating a world within a tank and doing all i can to keep them happy. I love the vibrancy of the colors and the challenges to keep them there.
