hmm... 17 years. I had a betta when I was about 15 and he lived a nice long time.. I took him with me when I moved out at 18, but he died soon after. I started keeping and breeding angels after that, and was at it for about 3 years. My husband got sick of it when we got married so I stopped and just had a pair and didn't breed them. Had a few other fish in there while I was on the Angels. When they died I stopped keeping fish. Took a lloooonnnggg break and just got into bettas a few years back, starting with Lunch, who would have been the catalyst for my current obsession if disaster hadn't struck. Took me a while to get over that.. but now I have Bettabettabetta and the other 6 kids

And that brings me to.. 8 years of serious fish keeping over the last 17 years.

I'm like Mo. I'm 12 and have been keeping and researching fish since 11. So about one year. Though I did have one when I was 3... It stayed with me tell I was 6!
( Considering I knew nothing about fish and it lived in one of them half gallon tanks I think that is pretty good. )

My family has been on and off with fish. We first had a community tank with some tetras. Our first betta came in when I was about 8. So I've been betta keeping for about 9 years, seeing as I'm 17 now.

I have been doing fish keeping for about 1 year and 8 months, on and off. I had an aquarium when I was younger for about a year or so and now I'm getting back into fish keeping and have been at it for 8 months now.

I'm a little over my mid 20's and I would consider myself a intermediate, been handling bettas since I was 12 and many things have change through out the years, When I turned 20 been on and off with it due to "The Real World of Life" and kids that I'm very proud of and has the same interest in bettas fishes too.
