Part of the Hobby

I did not monetize this video, but b/c it uses copyrighted music’s melody, it might run ads in certain parts of the world.
Oscar Clip :

The main reason why I haven’t gotten a new tank is b/c of my living situation. I’m not sure if I’m going to extend the lease after the year is up, so if I get another big tank, it would be such a hassle during the move. I’ll probably decide in a month or so.
Fish death is part of the hobby. Some fish just die no matter how well you take care of them. Some die the day you bring it home. I think it becomes a much bigger deal than it is b/c I run a youtube channel. However, some fish are part of the family. I still remember my oscars from 20 years ago.
I was broken up about Pollock’s death more than expected. Maybe it was b/c of the quarantine, I don’t know.
I felt so bad about the nerite, and especially Dante. Dante was such a personable betta.
All of this happened in the span of around 5 months.

  • Sorry for your lost, I know how much you care your pets, you always inspired me, I sold all my aquariums because I have to move from my house and I still miss them, I back to your channel and it remember me my aquariums, thank you for everything. I like your talked videos because I can practice my english 😊

  • I just subbed because of this. Kudos to you bro, this took some big breaths to get through and you honoured them all with respect. 2020 was indeed a terrible year, 2021 isn't really that much better. Let's hope 2022 and 2023 make up for them.

  • last year, i lost my heart. i dont know if she just didnt have 9 lives or if she had used the before they got her from the alleyway she was found in but, she didn't make it. in the end it was scary and painful but, i was holding her when she stopped suffering. I collect tarantulas and other kinds of creatures and lost quite a few over the months. I understand when you mention how people feel about fish. I hope you are doing ok, that this year is being better to you. Kiss or pet Curry for me.

  • I’m so sorry about your flowerhorn. I never knew what happened to him. You are a very knowledgeable water pet and feline pet owner. Your pets are blessed to have you. Thank you for the time you spend on showing us your aquariums. I always watch your videos at bedtime because they are very calming. How do you know so much about fish and such? Is this what your career is or is it only a hobby? I am very impressed with your knowledge! 👍🏼🐌🦐🐠🐟🐈💕

  • I always get back to this when I lost my fish.. I think for most of us, keeping a pet made us better understanding the morality of every living thing. Even the slightest moment of sadness like losing your beloved shrimp, makes you wondering what you could've do to prevent it.

  • I just lost my betta fish Apollo, I had to put him down about over week ago because he was suffering from dropsy. I get the pain of losing a fish. People think it’s silly to cry over a fish, but they really are like your children. They save a special place in your heart. I’m sorry for your losses, may Foo, Dante, and the nerite Rest In Peace.

  • I literally went and purchased a £350 tank last week for my 3 goldfish as they were getting too big. I was meaning to upgrade but never really prioritised it. I've had these fish for 6 years. I never realised how much they meant to me until 2 started getting sick with red spots on their heard from ammonia poisoning. Broke my heart, so I got them better and treated them to a much larger tank. These videos have driven me to taking much better care of these gorgeous creatures and I'll be getting some shrimp and other goldfish friendly teammates at the weekend. I'm so sorry for your losses and my late response. I've been watching these videos for a few weeks now and grew to love them. You're an awesome owner and any pet would be living like a king with you:)

  • The worst part of have any pets is when they get sick or pass away which I'm sure most pet owners can understand. Also I can only imagine aquarium life being much harder to deal with when it comes to all the things that can harm them. Sorry for your loss and hope your year improved.

  • Pets, like people come and go. Take solace in that you did what you could for those that passed, and that you can still have time with Curry. Frankly, I'd see about a blue species of fish to replace Dante, since blue flames are hotter than red. And maybe name him Vergil. (After both Dante's Inferno and the Devil May Cry series)

At this day, my 3 goldfishs still alive and love them more than ever. 2020 has taken from us more than a lot, things like this happens and we just have to carry on with o without our beloved ones.

  • i once had an axolotl called Axxy (obviously). i did everything i could to make him the happiest axolotl in the world but he ended up dying due to trauma from the pet store. i had a choice to give up on axolotls and fish tanks in general, or i could try again. i made my choice and after 2 months of research, getting better equipment, and cycling, i got Muuny the Bandit (another axolotl) who would grow to live for many, many happy years. you can tell when an axolotl is happy and Muuny absolutely was. sometimes i feel like we're being cruel keeping animals in tanks, but then i remember that hopefully i gave my animal companions a really, really good life. a friend of mine told me "if it weren't for people who care for axolotls and breed them, they would have gone extinct decades ago". i think you can apply this mentality to any aquarium animal.

I was rooting for the small fry to stay hidden from the bigger shrimp Please continue making your videos. They are so wonderful and i enjoy the music you choose Blessings on you, on your tanks, and for your loved ones and Curry too. 😚

  • We have to believe that our loved ones are in a better place when they pass. My ex and I kept a breeding pair of angelfish with a school of those small orange fish in a 75. It was a lot of fun and we had no problem with overpopulation because daddy (and mommy) would always eat their babies but it was fun to watch their breeding behavior. If you like angels and plants this makes a dope tank.
