There is a cure for MTS! Its called a lack of funds!!!!! But then relapsing is very common as when some is available, home improvements, clothing and bills go out the window and its yet ANOTHER new tank coming thru the door!!

I started with a large corner aquarium i saved from a house clearance, it was going to be thriwn into a skip
The came 2 4ft tanks on one stand, complete set ups i got for half the asking price
Then came yet another tank, still sat empty but nearly all the equiptment is sta around and got the stand for it now
Then i sold the corner tank
Bought a 3ft tank and stand
Bought a little 20g
Sold both of them
Setting up a previously mentioned tank and then will be selling the 2 4fts

Benn forced into promising family members that i will stop buying tanks when iv got this last one set up but i know and you all know that there will be one day when you look at one of your tanks you think one of 2 things

"Its not big enough anymore"

"I think the room looks empty over there, il get another one to balance it out"

Im glad my fingers were crossed when i promised

OMG - too funny!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I had my first aquarium dream last night, it was that my friend wanted me to help her start a saltwater tank and when I got there she was using two big rubbermaid containers for tanks and there were freshwater fish in the saltwater and salt in the freshwater and I was pulling my hair out trying to fix it.

My name is amanda and im an addict. I have MTS. I have 4 tanks freshwater and am anout to embark on a nano reef sw tank. My husband has agreed to let me turn our formal living room into an aquarium room AND letting me keep the 75 gallon in the family room. I think for xmas he is gonna get me a 125 gall sw for the aquarium room. He loves to tanks as much as i do but he only loves to look at em and aquascape them.

Hello Amanda, welcome to MTS. My name is Marie and I've been an addict for more years the I'd like to admit. Was "clean" for a while till I said oh I can do it in moderation ... Hardeeharharhar. My kids are my enablers. Looks like you have an enabler as well.
