I guarantee you'd enjoy ant farming. And, you already have most of the training on proper husbandry from the shrimp tanks.
Most fail when caring for ants as they're feeding too much, or not paying attention to small stuff like hydration, or molds in the setup.
If you are interested, send me a PM. I'd be more then happy to give you a hand, and help you with a setup.

Here's a video from my old farm. This colony grew very large before i sold them.

That is fantastic! My mom recently died and was a beekeeper. And as luck would have it (or being stung a lot as a kid of a beekeeper really) I'm allergic to bee stings but have always been fascinated by the colony life of insects. I'm not quite ready to keep "land shrimp" just yet, but I wouldn't be surprised to get into it at some point. Will 100% hit you up if I get that notion.

Missed this post but felt the need to respond. You're right, I was hesitant to even post this firearm. I hate so much that my pastimes tend to be loathed or at least politicized by people I otherwise have lots in common with. One of my favorite work T-shirts (I own a pet supply shop) is a drawing of a big body of water with a goldfish in a bowl floating in it (I'll snap a pic if anyone wants, but it's just as described). Many people have come in my store and assumed it meant that I disagree with keeping fish and let me know that they "agree with me." Then there's an uncomfortable conversation, "nope, I'm all about keeping live fauna in aquariums, just ethically." I've had many argue that there is no such thing. Oh goodness how the fish I breed and bring into this world have hit the lottery compared to their wild brethren! No predators, parasites, disease, famine, drought, constant food -there's no comparison. But I understand their gut feeling. Similarly with firearms as a fun way to spend a day at the range, it's just so different from the concept that these tools I use for recreation are only good for murder. I had planned to spend this afternoon (and did until interrupted with a summer rainstorm) shooting this rifle and calculating the bullet weights and so forth that work best at each yardage, tweaking the windage and elevation of scope, practicing my breathing when I pull the trigger, and all the typical learning a new rifle exercises. Shooting another person never entered my mind, obviously.

I have duck, quail, turkey breast, venison, wild boar, and all manner of fish in my freezer from hunting and fishing and cook meat I harvested more often than I buy it from the grocery store. I won't go into how the meat we typically eat is farmed, so will just say that in my perfect world I'd harvest all the meat my wife and I eat on my own, and I feel the same way with gardening. Every year I expand the garden a little more, and wind up giving more veggies away than we eat but still don't have every herb and veggie I need! Whenever I buy a vegetable at the grocery store I wish I'd grown it or swapped it with a neighbor. But I must to work to pay my bills and mortgage and can not garden, fish and hunt as much as I wish I could. I even feed my dog and aquatic pets with as much that I harvest myself as I can. My dog eats more than 50% local wild game and veggies I grow in her raw diet.

Gardening and a houseplant collection. Jigsaw puzzles and scrabble. But my biggest love is reading. I've been writing a book blog for over a decade now.

My three favorites say it all: 300 blackout with suppressor, Custom Nighthawk .45, and my STI competition gun. I was cleaning them this morning- overlooking my medicinal herb garden at 5am (they shimmer in the sunrise). If you saw me doing it- attractive blonde female cleaning her AR and drying herbs.... it is quite the comparison. So my hobbies are quite unique and extensive.... from guns to medicine to business (I am a restaurateur and chef). I can talk to anyone about medical (medications/treatments or biology)- but have to walk on egg shells when I mention I have a gun collection.


Same goes for my cars- limited edition luxury sports car, and my 1985 modified CJ7. Total parallels. And yes- it does have an AR mount- that is not for a 'water bottle'.

But im ready for that zombie apocalypse!

Sweet gun. I love the suppressor. I am ready to. Between me and my dad we have ~4 handguns, 2 regular AR15s, 2 AR15 22s, a bolt action 22, and an old single shot 22. My grandpa lives on the same property and he has a 44 magnum and a 12 gauge pump shotgun. Do not try to invade our home lol.

Photography and video games.
Mainly macro photography, adding in shots of my kids activities. I'm building out a 75G, so I'll have some new subjects to photograph. My avatar is my current group of zoomies in a 10g planted.

Video games are mostly the inexpensive or free kind. I've been playing TF2 for 7 yrs or so. BF1, World of Tanks/Warships.

My hobby is video games. I know that it is not good but when I play on it, I am very relaxed. However, I play a lot in League of Legends and I wanted to try a new thing some months ago, it is to stream how I play. I was afraid of my rank because I thought that it was low and I wouldn't captive many viewers because of it. I bought a boosting service from boosteria.org at a convenient price and guys worked perfectly. I was on the desired rank in some days. Now I make a good income each month.

I recently put together a 6.5 Grendel.
Mill out the lowers myself and recently have built several Glocks.
I'll have to post a picture here.

I recently purchased my first FPV drone. It came with the goggles, radio transmitter, and drone in what they call a "ready to fly" kit. It was $175, but I'm already looking for more items to buy to compliment this purchase! I charge up the batteries and fly it around my back yard or sometimes in my house as the propellers have guards on them. It is a super fun hobby!
