Fish Head (adj): One who is obsessed with tropical or salt water fish as pets.
That would be me. I became a Fish Head late in life, after my move to the wonderful land of America. I had taken a job as a payroll accountant and two of my co-workers were Fish Heads. Every day at lunch they would talk about their fish, what had died, what was still living, whether they really needed to clean their tanks or not. Since I was doing payroll I had been given a very large office, which my co-workers assured me would be the perfect spot to set up a tank. The rest, as they say, is history.
Within a very short period of time I had seven tanks and a small tropical fish business. I was ordering fish from as close by as Santa Cruz and as far away as Texas. Did you know you can ship live fish via the US Mail? Not the ones from Texas of course, they came American Airlines. I belonged to fish clubs, I hung out with other Fish Heads and I went to "fish meetings."
And then I got divorced. Had to downsize my living space. No more tanks. No more Sunday water changes. Three cats.
