What makes one give up the fish keeping hobby?

All of our jokes and such aside I can see where some would be disgusted and desert the hobby.

Major algae, phish death, green water, disease, quarantine tanks etc... and I could write a novel here and we all know it.

Fear, observation, and experimentation are at the top in this hobby.

Fear comes in many forms.
Gassing phish, fertilizer routines, algae treatment, over feeding phish, substrate selection, the scale and measuring compounds, etc.....

Observation, many are new and expect instant gratitude with very little input or experience.
This is a journey and a learning experience not an Overnight Sensation!
(Notice the Frank Zappa pun).

Experimentation seems to be ongoing and most likely never-ending.

Stepping down from the "SoapBox" now.
