You Know you are an addict when:
The employees at petsmart have you cell # in case something goes on sale.
The same employee texts you to say that someone just came in wanting to get rid of all their fish.... and you take them all.
You have enough tanks to be able to take 12 new adult fish.
You come in the garage entrance and sneak downstairs, so the wife doesn't see the little plastic bags.
You have a hard time picking the "best" entries for a post like this and still can only narrow it down to 4

Ps I started with a Fluval Chi in oct 2010
Chi (on my desk)
5 gal (kids tank)
20 gal (puffer tank)
1.5 gal (food tank for Pete the puffer)
55 gal (Overflow)
125 gal (community)

I must say I am guilty of just about all of these. LOL My best white lie to tell the hubby is that the fish/plant was in my 55 gallon that is still at my moms house and I decided to move it to one of the tanks I have at our house. LOL I also have told him on several occasions that the plants/fish I have recieved in the mail have been sent to me by free from my friends on here that had extras. LOL

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

The saddest thing about my addiction is that two of my fish have been on international and domestic flights and I've gone nowhere.

I started my hobby a couple days before xmas. I had given up a bad habit and this was my reward... I have never had issues with money and paying bills etc. However My spending went out of control with just a 20g setup! I ended up having to postpone my rent check to my roommates until my next paycheck!!! I was out of control going to petsmart every other day... Its amazing how 20.00 here 10 there adds up!

I can totally relate to the article above not on all counts but I can see some of it.


I have stopped the spending thank goodness!

However I still sit and look at my tank and wonder what can I do!

So to make light of it I thought it would be fun to start a thread you know your addicted when?


I know I am addicted when I start giving lies about going to the pet store!
HAHA! what a great thread! I just stopped spending too! I hit past the 600$ mark so to hit 700 would be just too much..I do thesame things but now I have the tank FULL of junk and I already have everything I was recommemded to use and Im still looking and thinking about what other things I could add...

you know your an addict when people call you when their bored and ask you to give them an update on your tank drama situation because they found it really interesting that you paid so much attention to your fish's behaviors that you now know what they like to do, who they dont like, who they like to hang out with, where they like to be and who they like to bother!

I got my first tank a month ago and now I am a TOTAL addict...I dont even want a Ducati anymore....


wait do I really not want a Ducati?? hhmm..I dont know...only if I meet someone who can take care of my tanks while Im away on a road trip...which would be very rare to find someone caring enough to take care of your tank and keep up with the maintanance...

I dont know but I love fish:)

please watch and share with friends and family.
