Honestly: Do any of you notice we're all addic's ....All the stories start differently...but they all have ONE thing in common "Well so I had one, then bought another one and a 3rd..."

I say Byron or someone there needs to set up a addiction support group - FA - Fishy Anonymous

Agreed. At least it keeps us out of trouble (at least on water change day)

I never had a fishtank of were even closely interested in aquariums, even though Ive been scuba diving for 15 years.
But in 2008 I woke one saturday morning and said to the wife i want a fish tank. She laughed, thought I was joking but off to the Pet store we went.
Bought my 1st tank, 35G and so many other stuff that I now know wasnt even really necessary for the tank I bought. But who does research on something as simple as fish keeping. Food and water, what else could fish need.LOL
18 months and a lot of research later, I now have a 80G cichlid tank and for the wife 2 x 10G Betta Tanks.
And no regrets for starting this hobby

Fresh out of reform school, I had to find something to do that would keep me out of trouble.
Things just kind of snowballed.8)

of cause not, i'd not give it up neither, not AGAIN giving all the last one's up for the move was surly hard enough (and yes I cried over "just fish")
Matter of fact, I need to built a L-shaped stand asap so I can house 2x 10g on it and get setting the 2nd 10g up and running
