depending on the state of your marriage, that next one could be the lucky 13 or the unlucky 13.

Hmm, would it be wrong to rent a secret apartment for your fish instead of your mistress? I too want more tanks, but the boyfriend seems to think that just because there is a bare wall, doesn't mean a tank should go there. I'm just hoping he'll eventually contract MTS from living with me for too long.

I have five at the moment with two empty (one not exactly empty but I have Pomacea canaliculata snails there). Used to have 6 a few years back. Still have two ponds. I'm getting more tanks soon but they'll mostly be 10g. Can't go wrong with more though. I can always use them for some exotic fish to boot.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Hmmmm..... Momma said no more tanks over 100 tanks ago. lol She's still here. But I think I've finally reached MY limit. Any more tanks and I'll have to move just to have room for a bed. It's not quite that bad,......yet.

But that's not fair, you breed, so when you get another tank, you can hide behind the work excuse! I keep talking about becoming a breeder and my BF thinks that's totally cool, I can justify I gigantic fish room if I make money off of it. But alas, that is far off.

I just picked up my fourth tank this evening, a 75 gallon. That's three new tanks (242 total gallons) in less than one month...this is my new obsession.

Be skeptical without being cynical.

How many times has she repeated her warnings so far, Bob?:P You seem to keep adding tanks despite her warnings.

My problem is that I keep thinking I got myself a good deal on a tank, and then going out and spending $200 on lighting. But it's oh so worth it.
