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 took a hike down by the Arkansas River by a big dam bridge (dam is under the bridge lol) and found a very nice piece of driftwood for my 20g!

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

when you seriously consider turning down a career opportunity because the state you would have to move to has a law against keeping your favorite native fish... bye bye Lil' Pike...

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

I am guilty on all three counts. :D

Creatures great and small, I love 'em all! But mainly the fish.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

You know you're addicted to aquariums when...

- you talk to your fish more than you talk to your friends
- you can't stop thinking about things like pH fluctuations
- said fluctuations stress you more than they stress your fish
- your friends whom you normally beg to stop bragging about their children are now begging you to stop bragging about your fish
- and you come up with four signs of addiction off the top of your head without having to think about them at all.

Creatures great and small, I love 'em all! But mainly the fish.

When you make a promise to your fish that you will not eat fish even though one of their flake foods contain salmon.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

When you fall asleep while looking at your tanks... and you dream about getting a larger tank, and the entire process happens and wake up asking where the larger tank is. o_o

Happened to me a couple days ago...

- I haven't eaten fish ever since my first little under water friend.
- I have tried shrimp pellets to see what they enjoy so much.
Srsly, I love mah fishaz!

Filters: top fin 10 and 20 power filters.
Fish: 2 panda cories, 1 peppered Cory, 5 kuhli loaches, and 4 cherry barbs.

Bump since this is awesome...

You know you're addicted to mini tanks when you look at a wineglass and think, "That would be gorgeous with black sand and a single dwarf sag. Oh, and under a spotlight with a black background, and..."

Adopt one today!
Lead me not to temptation...I can find my own way there, thank you

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

you find yourself trying to convince your wife " no honey that is not a new fish, one of the other ones just had babies" and there are no other fish like him in the tank.


had a dream I went to a new LFS and they had these little tiny elk that lived on the bottom of aquariums, coolest thing ever, then I was p!$$#d when I woke up and realized it was a dream.


And not 2 hours ago I was sitting here with GPS and laptop planning out a saturday LFS tour, I'm hitting 3 stores in a 45 mile radius.


loving this thread

90 gallon, 1 Iridescent shark, 2 Pleco, 3 Goldfish, 5 Cory cats, 2 Nerite snails
5 gallon hex, Blue Crowntail Betta, 1 nerite snail,

you know your addicted when you sell random electronics in the house that your wife won't notice so you can have cash and no paper trail to the LFS...

Dude, I've totally done that!

When you see an unused tank sitting around in someone's house and you are immediately concerned with what exactly is going to happen to it, even though it's just a little 10 gallon and you already have three of them that you're not using yet...

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

...when you cut back on your groceries to buy your fish BACKUP groceries because you MIGHT run out before next payday

...when your girlfriend says "i wish you looked at me like you look at your fish" true story

...you get home from work, try to play videogames, pause it, and jump on AF while staring into your tanks...doing this now.

...you have to rescape your tank every month with several minor changes between

...you cannot go a day without getting your arm/hand wet

...find different perspectives to watch your fish

...describe your hobby as "fishtastic!"

fish tanks are art. they represent the imagination of their owner, and one's desire to create something beautiful that enriches its environment.
