All I know is I have fuzzy babies, a feathered one and now scaley babies ^_^ All of them are my pets/babies/kids/reason I don't go completely bonkers. Notice I said completely, because I won't lie, some damage can't be undone. @_#
It just gets me when people term it as a hobby to imply that it's something passing. If you care for your fish as little scaley family members then there is no problem with it, but when people grow tired of their "hobby" of fish and decide to get rid of them just because.
