I get serenity. I keep my tanks in my bedroom so as I am laying down I can watch them. Nothing is better before bed <3
What do you get? Self satiation from what you have created and maintained? Pride from how amazing it looks? Frustration because it seems if it can go wrong, it will? Despair because you can't get it right? Or are you unsure yet but are soon to find out!
I am very curious how you feel about your tanks. They're definitely not always easy, are they? Some days it seems like even your fish are working against you. There are days when I've felt I should just throw in the towel. Water parameters would not go to normal, SBD, not eating, cloudy water. Sometimes it's more trouble than you think it's worth.
Your experiences? I'm anxious to see how others feel.
