 The  only  criticism  I  face  is  from  my  wife.  She  does  not  like  the  space  utilized  by  the  tanks  Sad.  The  high  real  estate  cost  adds  masala  to  the  whole  thing   Crying or Very sad.

 Needless  to  say  the  duo  was  not  too  pleased  with  the  playback.  Now  it  was  my  turn  to  threaten  the  duo.  Resign  or  be  sacked.  The  duo  must  have  asked  for  a  transfer  and  have  never  been  seen  since.
                 

 
 Is  this  guy  by  any  chance  the  one  who  was  mentioned  as  getting  smacked  for  deflating  the  tyres  of  IAH  members?

 I  am  fortunate  that  I  have  started  the  hobby  at  my  age  of  52.  So  no  question  of  criticism  from  parents.  I  really  get  full  100%  support  from  my  wife  and  two  sons.  I  have  now  three  aquariums  in  my   flat.  My  drawing  room  is  still  doesn't  have  any  aquarium.  The  concept  of  4th  tank  is  thus  brewing  for  an  exclusive  residence  of  my  beautiful  red  devil  boy.  
 
 Cheers

 more  cynicism  than  criticism:
 My  maid  to  me   "i  pray  to  god  everyday  that  i  be  born  as  a  fish  in  my  next  birth  in  your  tank"....and  i  almost  replied"  well  then  you  really  dont  like  to  live  long  do  you?"  Razz

 No  criticism  just  condescension  from  my  relatives.  Neighbours  can't  hide  their  smirk  while  visiting  and  ask  why  don't  I  keep  'colour'  fishes  or  vastu  meen(fish).  Kids  nearby  love  my  tanks  and  join  me  for  collection  trips  when  their  parents  let  them.  The  wifey  looks  at  all  this  with  stony  indifference.  My  son  well,  he  has  learned  to  say  gaga  (garra)  and  danio.  Can't  wait  for  him  to  grow  up  and  strengthen  my  hand.

 Well,  i  started  to  explore  this  hobby  when  i  was  in  5th  std  or  something,  back  then  i  had  NO  concept  of  pocket  money.  But  i  managed  to  steal  15rs  from  mom's  purse  Smile  (old  habits  still  continues)  and  bought  a  pair  of  platies.  When  i  reached  home  i  had  a  tough  time  explaining  mom  that  my  friends'  platies  had  bred  and  he  has  parted  two  fries  with  me  Wink  .
 
 Stage  one  has  completed  but  where  to  keep  the  fishes?  Solution  -  bournvita  bottles  :)
 
 Stage  two:  feeding,  with  no  source  of  money,  i  was  successful  in  converting  those  platies  into  south  indian  platies.  I  fed  them  rice.  A  lot  of  rice.  No  water  changes.  Obviously  one  died.
 
 Other  one  managed  to  jump  into  toilet  on  water  change,  I  guess  he  felt  water  in  there  must  be  better  than  the  water  in  bournvita  bottle  :d
 
 From  then  on,  i  had  lots  of  ups  and  downs  in  fish  keeping  with  varying  levels  of  intensity  of  scolding,  nagging........
