    Am I the only one that enjoys cleaning the tank?

    I can tentatively raise my hand. I scrub my glass and vacuum my tank couple times a week even with all the babies to dodge in there, makes it look shiny! Also they love the new water and feeding that come with it all the better to make my sand/gravel all messy again. Everyone crowds around to peck at the vacuum and my fingers if they get too close to the water.. hate the magnetic scrubber though. Spooks them for some reason.

    lol I surprisingly enjoy clean the tank to. When I vacuum my tank, my fish go after the syphon and attack it lol. It's an enjoyable moment! They also enjoy when water is coming back into the tank, they try to stand the current and race each other to see who can make it to the syphon ending.

    I do! I spend a lot of time staring at my tank so I'm always finding something I want to do in there like thinning out my ever-present duckweed, clipping off the dead leaves on plants or picking out a ramshorn snail I've spotted. But I have to refrain because I know it would just stress my fish out if my hands are in there too much/too often.

    And as crazy as it may sound, I do look forward to my scheduled water changes! My fish and I feel refreshed afterwards!

    I'm glad I'm not the only 1 I don't think my fish like it when I rearrange there furniture tho.

    I also love cleaning! I get some sick sort of satisfaction watching all the yucky stuff coming out of the substrate when I vacuum the gravel.
