When you start trying to explain a simple concept like co2 to someone, and it ends up being a 3 hour lecture on planted tanks with a captive audience.

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

60 gallon hex saltwater: 1 banded brittle star, 1 peppermint shrimp, 2 hermit crabs, 1 turbo snail, 1 yellow watchman goby paired with a candy stripe pistol shrimp, 2 ocellaris clown fish. Bubble tip anemone, frogspawn, fungia, clove polyp.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

When you start looking for colleges for aquaculture so you can eventually open up your own LFS... and you sneek aquariums into the house in hopes no one will notice.

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

you know your addicted to aquariums when you spend more time at the pet store thinking about what they would like to eat than more time you spend at the grocery store thinking about your own food.

I'm pretty much guilty as charged on all of these, but the ones about lucid dreaming really hit home. I thought I was the only one! Isn't that the best!

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

when you leave a post work party to shut down your tanks

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

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

...when you buy an inverter and a chevy equinox that you otherwise didn't need so that you would be able to have running filters and lights on your tanks when you move across country.

...when it never even occurs to you that you could just tear the tanks down, give the fish away, and save almost 20k.

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

you know your addicted when you ask others about their water change habits and have concern for some of them(or their fish).

When your sole goals at yard sales is to hunt down fish related items or things that can be used as such. And then commence to talking people down on said items because you must have it, but dont want to pay what they want

"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

Re: You know your addicted to aquariums when -

you know your addicted to fish when:

you make your kids share a room so you can steal the larger one to turn into a fishroom
you have $1 left in your bank account because of a dollar per gallon sale
you look forward to the dollar per gallon sale more than christmas
the LFS calls you to ask what YOU have this week
you check craigslist 10x a day looking for a tank when you KNOW all 3 4' racks are full
you have 3 4' racks
you begin to wish bad things on people that put big fish in small tanks
you know more about fish you don't have yet than your wifes favorite song

Does not play well with stupid.
