Hey everyone,

So I am trying to take a questionaire to get some data for a presentation for my public speaking class. It has to be an informational topic and I chose the topic "Aquariums as and Art Form". If you can please take the time to answer these questions, I really appreciate it!

How much time do you spend on your aquarium in a week?

How much money have you invested in this hobby?

How many freshwater planted tanks do you currently have running?

Thanks for your help!

Half hour maybe

Fish, plants and hardware, food and all? Conservatively, $15,000 or more.

One, down from a couple dozen at the high point. Well, two if you count a pond.

Time spent per week: 2-3 hrs average
Money spent: wow, that's a tough one. Probably $4000 - $6000 considering everything
Tanks currently: 1 display tank and 1 quarantine tank on standby

Time: About 20 hours weekly.
Money: Over the course of 50 years in the hobby even a guess would shock me.
Tanks currently: 2 displays, 31 tanks total. More in the works.

About 5-6hrs per week between maintenance and feeding.

Investment on present setups is around 5k, I've kept fish consistently for almost 20 years I would estimate over this span I've spent around 50K.

8 have plants, I would consider 6 as being a true planted aquarium.
