Hard to pin it down for me. It's between kicking back and watching them and collecting as many as I can. I like seeing how all the different species and genus act and interact.

I chose other because I like to create a planted environment around the fish.

When I rescape I continue with the fish I have unlike many aquascapers who get different fish to compliment each different scape.

Then I sit back and watch the fish (and the scape)

I guess I could put it in as tank maintenance if that includes scaping?.

I am with Supercoley 1 , my favorite thing is designing/creating the tank, aquascaping, selecting fish, rocks, etc. Cich of it all, you can come to my house and do the maintenance any time!

Nah, you've got MTS and that's the last thing I need. Can you imagine someone who likes to design new tanks and hates maintaining them with MTS??? I stick with the four I have and just rotate redesigning them.

I would have to say all of the above to me it is like collecting sports cards when you were a kid constantly striving to collect all of them and the excitement of finding that really rare fish that you always drooled over. Then after that comes the breeding, feeding and so on also a little boasting about your latest find to get your friends a little flustered while waiting for the first spawn, but it's all in fun. :D
