We spend the last 2-4 hours before bed looking at our tanks. I am usually taking pictures of the tanks, fish or our cats. That's how I relax. Taking 10, 000 shots of fish only to get 5 good shots. I feel like I am always looking at one tank or another. We have 7 up and running right now...the rest are elsewhere. My bf's business partner has some at his home too. He's getting more soon.
Fish is 80% our focus around here since we are opening our own fish breeding store in the next few years.

Since I stratigically placed the tanks throught the livingroom, I'm constantly looking at them even while TV is on or sitting here with my laptop posting on here and such. Especially my cichlid tank. I . Go out to look at my koi pond probably at least 10 times a day minumum. It is a disease you know?

Only 5-15 minutes, but once I get another tank, it'll go up about 4 hrs.

I spend a lot of time looking at my tanks..Dunn is in my kitchen so he interacts with me while I'm cooking....My salt tank, Jagger and Kix are all 3 in my living room....Will is in my entry way but it is the main walkway to my living room and kitchen so he is always getting admired....

My tanks are my tv so to speak, I love to watch them! my husband comes home at night and sits down in front of the mbuna tank as if it were a big screen tv and football was on. (I had a good show this morning, watching a spawning show lol)

A good part of the day for us. The tanks are all over, even surrounding the computer so we can always be watching some of them.

Bowie gets lonely and starts misbehaving if I don't spend at least 15 minutes a day with him, and he only accounts for one tank; I have to give love to Esteban, Consuela, Rasputin & the other tiger barbs, and the Spiders from Mars... ;P At least 20-30 minutes on an average workday, much longer on the weekends when I actually have time to relax!

I always say to myself "i'll go look at the fish for a few minutes and see how they're doing" next thing I know its dark outside the window and my hunger drives me to get up and go get some dinner.

I spend at least 2 hours between the three tanks I have they are all in my family room I find that I miss a lot of my tv shows drifting off and watching the fish. I like to watch them interact with each other like when they play when they spat while they eat. My wife thinks that I have gone goofy but then I catch her doing it too. I have even caught her talking to the oscars.

MTS keeps me attached to my 15g. I watch it every time I get home, every time I switch on the tank light and every time after feeding time! lol I LOVE MY TANK!

I can't watch them more than about an hour a day now, due to having up to 15 hour school+work days, but when I had time to I'd watch them for hours on end.

LOL! Every morning after feeding cats and fish I sit down with a cup of coffee and think, I'll just sit here for a bit with a kitty on my lap and have a few sips of coffee while I watch the fishies swim and eat...

...about 45 min later I'm really, really late
