Oh man... I don't know how you guys do it, as teenagers. I'm glad I didn't take an interest in fish tanks until last year. I never would have had the time to do it before I became a stay at home mom (stupid work schedule), and before I dropped out of college, I wouldn't have had the money to afford it! Now... my husband pays for everything. Wink

My least favorite part? Water changes, (so... many... buckets...) and all the casualties I've caused with my newbie mistakes. Every fish that dies... I feel directly responsible and rather guilty.

Oh, I also don't like how I don't know very much about the hobby yet. I feel like every time I start to figure something out, I come across an entire other vast expanse of information that is just waiting to be funneled into my brain. Who knew it was sooo much more than a tank, some lights, some water and some fish?!

not knowing what is causing problems in my tank


+1 to this! It is so frustrating trying to diagnose some problem, knowing that you will probably end up doing a complete tear down and rebuild anyway...

This one will probably always happen. Laughing The more you know about something, the more you realize you don't actually know. I started trying to understand the reactions that happen to organics within the substrate the other day, ugh.

water changes and catching holding females without spooking them enough to make them spit their eggs!

LOL well, I guess its comforting to know that even you more experienced hobbyists don't know it all! Laughing

I just go door-to-door asking for work, I made $45 on memorial day which is all I need to support the hobby.

I've been spending money non stop ever since I bought a new tank. In fact I've been going to the aqua shops pretty much everyday. There's always something I feel like buying - more plants, more fish food, new types of fish food, a new tester set, new fish etc. I have made a promise to myself to stop buying fish. But allow myself to buy other stuff, I've got a tester set in my mind right now, I went to the aqua shop again today, it's getting embarassing because like I said to my friend yesterday "I go to the same shop everyday, I bet the guy working there are already tired of seeing my face" lol. I still want to buy that tester set, but it's kinda expensive. The test set cost more than my new aquarium + filter + light.
