    It doesn't matter what you do, the point is how much money shall it bring on a table each month.

    I quit my bank job to go for aquascaping, as I think that money alone
    doesn't make one happy

    I'm a university student, currently studying civil engineering/architecture. But I work for a Computer Accessories Shop. I'm their all-rounder worker (do everything related to computers), but usually their official driver. ;)

    I think working something related to your hobby is equivalent to retired, because that what I'm gonna do when retired :)). Thumb up for Juri ;)

    I dont work at all too busy being retired (only 23 years now)

    When I did work I was a trade (Cabinet making) trade instructor at a Technical School/College for 26 years.

    Today I would not have enough time to work, too busy doing my own thing.

    im a banker like juri was, i hope i can follow juri, stop and become an aquascaper.
    bradster85 : cheer up, yes aquascape can be very very expensive, but it doesnt mean it MUST be expensive. just for comparison, total cost for my tank is only about USD 30 and i'm enjoying it.
