I am a programmer and do not know anything about aquatic plants but now i'm developing some related software and just want to talk with people interested in aquariums... Who are you? Why is it so cool?
It's probably a script that scans this thread and logs all of our answers into a database and makes him alot of money..
LOL, all jokes aside, welcome to the forum.
I love aquariums because they are constantly evolving. People come over to my house daily and comment that it looks totally different than yesterday (of course that is sometimes the truth how much I tinker with one.) I like watching the fish, nice and relaxful, and most of my fish have some sort of personality to them and are quite outgoing and good about coming out to the front of the glass to stare back at myself. I just like watching the activity and the growth of the plants. Wake up one day, don't like how it looks, you can do something about it and totally change it's look from yesterday.
I guess i love having the tanks because all of the reasons before mentioned, but also because it;s having a little peace of nature just besides you, you can see it grow, evolve and also sometimes fall.
Fish are great! besides relaxing they can also be fun to watch, i spend more time now watching the different tanks than watching television. :lol:
It's a rewarding hobby! All the efforts you do to set and maintain a tank they are always rewarded by all sorts of reactions, like growth, reproduction, etc.
