Retirement Hobbies: Keeping Tropical Fish
Thirty-odd years ago, I kept tropical fish and belonged to the local aquarist society, thanks to a colleague of mine who was the then society secretary.
I had to dismantle & sell my tank due to a house move in 1983. Since taking early retirement at the end of December 2010, I looked for a hobby, and at my husband's suggestion I returned to the world of fish-keeping.
Watching the fish swim around the tank in our living room is both fascinating and relaxing; it's especially interesting when a fish you're a novice keeper of actually spawns in your tank.
Wendy I am thrilled to read that you re-found and old hobby and started it again in retirement - exactly the type of thing that works best in retirement!
