Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

you know your addicted to aquariums when you run out of money in the winter and decide to dive into water not fit for house plants with a dip net and a flashlight in a plastic bag just to get that perfect native that likes to hang out at the bottom of the lake.

you know your addicted to aquariums when you do this without the scooba gear you cant afford....

You show me a man who can reliably grow algae and I will show you a man who can reliably grow fish.

You know you're addicted when your wife mentions having/wanting a baby and your first thought is "That doesn't fit my aquarium budget".

You know you're addicted when you have looked into/are currently/ or all ready setup a streaming web cam so you can watch your tanks at work.

You know your addicted when a friend hands you a fish as a gift and you grill them for information on how to care for the fish they just gave you.

When your fish have a fine selection of fine foods, the best tropical flakes, treats in the freezer, special foods to keep them vibrant and happy, and you're eating mac and cheez, straight from the pot, sitting in front of your tank.

When you're waiting for the lonely trutle to either be sent to a petstore or released back to the wild so you can work on that tank.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

when getting ready to move 3 hours away, the thing at the top of your list to make sure goes right is moving your aquarium


oh and a mini-aquarium is set up with 5 gallon buckets on your floor filled with the plants and all the fish in preparation for the move, lol







they've got they're own little system complete with a heater

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

reefer from 5 years ago will appreciate this.

(true)

you know you addicted to aquariums when you spend hours checking out every home depot within 100 miles looking for the magical sand. You know. the one that says right on the bag "not for aquarium use"

then 5 years later go bare bottom.

LOL.Its sad,but its all true.I was reading half of these,with the hubbs in the background,going HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM.lol

You know your addicted when every store you go into,you have to find out if they have anything you can use for a fish tank or supplies for them.
When you travel half a state away for frozen foods.
When you have every friend of yours looking for driftwood when they go to the lake.
When you raid the neighbors yard for rocks,lol.

"I've macrostoma tastes on a veiltail budget. "

If i drew it it'd look like a monkey eating a horsradish on the moon or something

You know your addicted to aquariums when, your looking for your first place to live on your own and the only thing you can think about is where you are going to set up your tanks and if there's room for more..
