 I  am  talking  about  India  and  in  general.  I  know  there  are  a  few  exceptions,  but  in  general  women  are  very  rarely  seen  in  this  hobby  in  my  observation.
 What  do  you  think  is  the  reason?
 If  you  do  not  agree,  give  some  good  examples.

 They  are  too  busy  taking  care  of  the  men  &  Kids.
 Changing  their  water,  feeding  them,  attending  to  them  and  watching  them.  
 To  have  any  time  left  to  be  bothered  about  fish.

 They'd  rather  spend  on  themselves  than  some  fish.  See  how  many  pairs  of  just  shoes  a  woman  has  !
 
 As  for  wives:
 
 They  are  plain  jealous.  
 
 The  husband  looks  at  the  fish  all  the  time  and  not  at  them  anymore.
 
 Nothing  else  !

 So  far  I  haven't  come  across  a  girl  who  can  handle  live  tubifex/BW,  clean  fish  poop  and  clean  off  algae  with  their  hands.  Chuckle

 I  think  Hobbyists  wives  are  interested  too  in  this  hobby.  They  are  silent  listener  and  learner.  But  not  to  take  up  the  hobby  but  to  criticize  their  husbands  fishy  activities.   Mad  
 
 Examples:
 
 1.Why  don't  you  stop  buying  HC  when  you  can't  grow  them??  That's  not  your  cup  of  tea.  
 
 2.Who  told  you  to  take  out  those  HM  from  the  nano  and  put  them  under  MH??  They  are  not  growing  half  as  good  as  they  were  in  that  small  tank.
 
 3.  You  are  much  more  interested  to  get  the  subscription  than  reading  it.
 
 etc....etc

 well  my  wife  is  exceptional  i  believe.
 
 except  for  feeding  /  handling  live  worms  she  does  all  the  care.   and  she  prefers  to  feed  tetra  bits.
 
 and  loves  to  feed  the  fish  out  of  her  hand.and  she  loves   planted  aquariums  and  pick  pockets   to  save  up  for  plants  /  aquariums  and  equipments.
 
 truly  amazing  isn't  it  ?   she  is  the  only  one  of  her  kind  as  far  as  i  have  seen.....!!!!!!!!!!!

 One  could  try  gifting  her  favorite  fish.eg.  Goldfish,  Oscar,  Flowerhorn  etc.
 It  may  click.  Wink

 But  to  be  serious,
 
 There  are  many  closet  lady  Hobbyist's.  They  generally  have  fathers,  Brothers  or  husbands  as  a  front  when  on  the  net.  But  in  a  public  place  they  come  out  in  the  open.
 
 I  realised  this  when  I  had  my  setup  in  a  shed.  Being  near  a  flour  mill  a  lot  of  girls  and  women  would  come  to  ask  about  the  fishes.
 
 Also  when  Adip  and  Mayur  made  me  wear  a  ADA  T-shirt  and  stand  in  their  stall,  a  lot  of  girls  could  come  to  enquire  about  the  fishes.  They  would  ask  trick  questions  about  Flowerhorns(sadly)  and  Arowana  giving  away  that  they  were  hobbyists.  One  such  pretty  girl  was  quite  knowledgable.  Pity  I  forgot  to  take  her  cell  #.
 
 As  a  true  blue  IAH'ian  I  made  sure  everyone  of  them  came  to  know  about  IAH.  I  wonder  how  many  visit  us  as  guests  Thumb Up  
 
 Regards,
 Nayak.

 cough:  cough:  Chuckle  
 Nayak  -  Was  an  enquiry  just  an  excuse?  Chuckle  
 Impressing  them  about  effect  of  Feng-Shui  to  attract  to  a  hobby  is  good  idea.
