About Yourself: I love fish. I've had my aquarium for a few years now, and I can say for certain that it's been a pleasure. The fish are amusing and calming, the tank makes a beautiful decoration for our living room, and keeping my fish healthy and alive is an entirely different challenge than, say, caring for a hamster. Finding a combination of species that will co-habitate, keeping the water at the right parameters to ensure optimal health and colors, and decorating their watery home to look at its best is a satisfying experience, to say the least. Though I had my doubts at first, I'm so glad I went with the bigger tank.
