I have had aquariums and fish since, well very young. I'm not really
sure when it was but I seem to remember the first fish being a goldfish in a
classic goldfish bowl.
I gold older I had a five gallon aquarium with zebras, mollys and tetras.
After a couple of years I moved up to a 10 gallon which I had off and on for
many years though college. After I got married my I got Anne my daughter
interested in aquariums and we started with a 10 gallon, then moved up to a 20
gallon which we had for many years. Anne then found an ad for a 50 gallon
and she bought it. A few years latter the week before we
to our house on Sunderbriar in Reston she saw an ad for a 90 gallon which she
bought and we set up as soon as we moved in. After Anne finished
veterinarian school she got a place of her own but it was too small for the
aquarium. "Officially" the 90 gallon aquarium was still hers and she would
come over once a month and spend a good hour cleaning it. After a few
years of that she finally one day made the aquarium officially mine. In
2009 I finally got tired of taking care of it and asked Anne if she knew of
anyone who might want it. Once of the staff where she works wanted
it and he came over and took it away.
