No, fishkeeping is not a disease, but it does pre-dispose you to MTS (Multiple Tank Syndrome). I think you've come down with a severe case of MTS, my condolences

Yes as stated, you are suffering from MTS.

If you're looking for a cure, you've come to the wrong place :) We tend to be shameless enablers here.

A disease? No. An addiction? Definitely! Fellow MTS sufferer here also. I also suffer from MBTS (Multiple Big Tank Syndrome). Lol

haha! My girlfriend told me today that she cant say no to me.. she is already claiming stock rights on at least one of the tanks.. She has her eye on an $25 3.5" flowerhorn at petsmart, she is also starting to demand a marine reef set up for downstairs.. Quality problems.

I am very lucky.. She has a limit though, she made me agree to sell the 84 Gallon Long on craigslist as part of the agreement to get the 75g. Little does she know that although it is sitting in the garage empty, I plan on resealing it and stocking it eventually. Sometimes it requires baby steps. We picked up that Flowerhorn today and she wanted to get a Betta. How could I say no?

Here are some highlights of my day today:

I took down the 84g, moved it down to the garage, built a cheap PetSmart particleboard 75g stand (was a nightmare), and set up the 75g in its place in the bedroom, leaving room for a 29g next to it down the road..

If you want to read a thread listing many of the various symptoms of Multiple Tank Syndrome (I think it's up to 31 specific signs/symptoms at the moment), copy the entire line below and paste it into a google search:

"how to diagnose MTS" (multiple tank syndrome)


NOTE: the very first post is the one you want to read with the listing...
