Welcome to the forum. AlisonLol! Me too!! Got a feeling there's gonna be moths flying out of my wallet soon!
I agree wholeheartedly. When I started..not all that long ago..I had previous experience..but it was back in the late 70's..early 80's. I started back up just a few months ago. I looked at a fish...as a fish!I never thought I would become attached to non-airbreathing critters... but I am rapidly becoming fiercely devoted my finkids. Today I came close to losing 2 of the little guys and my heart almost stopped when I realized they were in trouble.
I recently started a barb tank and I can't stop admiring their flashy little bodies. I have a chronic condition that causes a lot of pain but watching my tanks actually works to help me forget my owies for a while! And having a host of hopeful little faces nosing the glass, (Feed us, mom!) gives me a sense of purpose, however small. What a great hobby!
