Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

When your wife has finally gotten used to not going to the "nice dinners" on date night, cause that would interfere with my reef budget!

All information supplied is in my humble opinion. I am sure there is always someone out there who knows more then I, that will chime in soon.

Now back to trying to figure out how to combine my passions and either make an aquarium that does 0-60 in under 3 seconds, or ride motorcycles in aquariums....

Shout out to Robertmathern!


In reference for me looking for a justification for buying new bulbs to the wife.


Re: Shelf Life of T-5s

You can give them the old hammer test. Hit each bulb 1 at a time with a hammer. If it breaks you know the bulb is bad. If it does not break repeat process.

How about when you walk past a glass display case and think I could make that into an awsome aquarium.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

you can't wait for you and your future husband's first house purchase, not because you hate the cramped apartment, but because you want MORE aquariums. LOL

Pathetic, I know...

lol My wife and I are looking at houses and the first thing we do is say where could we put our tanks. We are planning to up size both of our aquariums when we get a house.

You know you're addicted to aquariums when you have to put on a wet suit to go into the tank and clean it!

You know you're addicted to aquariums when you go to the supermaket and wonder what it would take to set up a snow crab or king crab tank instead of how to cook them for dinner!

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

hahaha! These are fantastic! Unfortunately, or maybe not, I don't think I could EVER give up eating seafood due to my fish-keeping hobby...it's a way of life in Louisiana! Now pass me the shrimp jambalaya LOL!

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

You know you're addicted to aquariums when you start buying your friends aquariums as wedding presents because you don't have any more room in your own house. Oh dear......

When in doubt, do a water change.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

Haha, ladyonyx, I had a friend who wanted to give me an aquarium as my wedding present later this year! Knowing that I have one already, she's going to get something else.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

Haha! That's funny. I just set up a 29g invert tank for my friend's "wedding gift" last night. One can never have too many tanks......especially for free...

When in doubt, do a water change.

You know you're addicted to aquariums when you have as many pictures of your tank in your cell phone as you do your kids..

When your tank is worth more than your car...mine was until I got a new car, now I have to catch back up

It has become more than a hobby!

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

You know you're addicted to aquariums when you can't keep a quarantine tank because as soon as you have one set up cycled and waiting, you can't resist the urge to stock it.

Some of you are worse than me. I have had the fish floating around in the air dream, except that I was trying to get them back into the tank.
