When you look at your tank and see the individual critters crawling/swimming around doing their thing and you just kinda smile and think "yep, every second spent on that was well worth it". Greatest feeling ever. Even though my tank isn't done yet, seeing my HC starting to fill in well and seeing my few shrimp crawl around and my Espeis school with my pygmy corys is a great feeling of accomplishment. Feel free to share your experiences. :)

The time I most enjoy seeing my tanks is when I come home from work in winter, and it's cold and dark outside, maybe with snow and ice all around. The coming inside, and seeing the brightly lit up tanks with all the lush green tropical growth, with everything looking so alive. That really makes my day.

I love every single bit of my tank. Sometimes I get bored or annoyed with a few things and it will put me off from the tank for a while though (mostly how half my fish friggin hide) and the damn duckweed.

When I do finally see my golden oto's, or synodontis petricolas come out and about, or (what is left? most I've seen out of the 20 I got lately is a shoal of 4) of my pygmy cory's, I just sit there in joy, no sudden movements to frighten the sensitive ones. :fish:

The new bulbs I recently bought added a whole other look to the tank. My rams are so beautifully coloured under these lights

my best moments are when i lie in bed in the dark with just the lights on the tank and watch the fish swimming around.

the green is just so bright and the light ripples on the floor and on the leaves and you can just see the shapes of the fish swimming. it's really relaxing :)

Oh yeah. That water ripple effect on the floor or even on the rocks in my tank is awesome. :) I love that.

Depending if you have no other issues to deal with (trimming, replanting, dosing ratio, nutrients deficiency but don't know which, and etc) other than watching your tank inhabitants.

A few days after trimming would probably be what invokes this feeling. Same applies for correcting dosing issues, etc.

Lmao. Okay, okay. After your tank grows back to the desirable level for all intensive purposes. :flick:
