I've always been an animal lover, but was never really interested in fish to be honest. Then one year, my brother was given a small tank with 2 goldfish for Christmas by a friend of his. He didn't particularly want the fish, kept them for about a year before offering them up for rehoming, which is where I stepped in!
The fish were originally in a 20 litre tank, which I quickly upgraded to a 90L, then a 200L, and now they're in a 500L! I now also have two tropical tanks and a tank for a rescued african clawed frog... so I've gone from having no interest in aquatics whatsoever, to having four tanks up and running!
I enjoy maintaining the tanks and watching the fish, I find it very relaxing which is great for me as I have big problems with anxiety and get stressed very easily. And with the goldfish in particular, I love seeing them grow and watching how they interact with each other as they all seem to have their own individual personalities!
