What was THE fish that got you into this hobby? My husband and I kept fish about 15-20 years ago, but the rekindled interest happened when my husband got a BETTA fish to try and make me smile. I'm sure a betta has beckoned others into this hobby! As a kid, the interest was sparked when we took in some goldfish a friend's mom was going to flush. They lived in a progressively larger fish bowls for many years despite my diligent scrubbing of their bowl and entire water changes (just didn't know about cycling and that the "film" I scrubbed was their beneficial bacteria... nor that a 1-2 gallon bowl was very far from ideal for the 2 goldies). What about you? Was there a specific fish that got you involved in this hobby?
