No Aunt Kymmie you've been known to do water changes at 2 am or was it 3 or 4 am? And also Congrats on 10K. Do you know that I spend 1/3 the time on Facebook as I used to....I'm in here!
This thread has made them laugh!! Thanks.
You know you are addicted when
you are thrilled to death that your 45 tall has leaked and you get to spend another $500 on a newer bigger tank. Sold to the hubby by cell phone call from the LFS as " Since they don't make the 45 Tall anymore and I'm not going smaller!... Do you want me to get another UGLY metal tube stand that shows all the filter crap... (55 OR 65Gal) OR.... a NICE wooden cupboard like one to HIDE IT ALLl? (YES!! woohoo got the 75G,stand,lights,top.) What he doesn't know is that they all come in wooden cupboard sizes too!...i would have gone bigger if the space between window and wall was not exactly 4' 3" wide. I could still go taller to 90..... hmmmmm she plots!
I am not addicted... really!!! I've only bought a 10 gal complete with Half moon Betta.... since for my office! I can stop really I can! Love that line.

On a more serious note..... Leogtr.... Give up a Duc.... that might be a little much
When I come south to ride... we will have to get together and say ... talk fish at the Tail of the dragon

Sorry to get a little off topic, but Bikes are my OTHER passion.
I love CBR's those are the ones I've been looking at! any bike that has the muffler in the back behind the seat I love!( I burned myself so many times in bikes that had it in the side) the Ducati is just like a matrix fantasy lol. Augusta's tamburini is so nice too! I cant wait to own a bike one day! still pretty distant from that dream though :(

So now look who has 10,000 + posts??

You may call yourself pathetic, but your tanks are freaking awesome.
And awesome people make awesome stuff, I guess...

Okay. You know you're addicted when...

1- You're planning your second tank just a month after getting your first one.
2- You visit your LFS at least once a week, just to see what's in stock.
3- You'd rather stare at your aquarium for hours on end than watch TV or do anything else on your computer.

Ya I know Sweet Poison! But hey you can twist it to sound right! It's all perspective right?
I went back to the start of this thread and remembered I had not read the link. Well hilarious. I was crying from laughing so hard by the time I was finished!!

Thank god my 2 LFS are over a half hour away and you have to got thru town to get to them so lots of local traffic and stop lights! That's the only thing that keeps me away. The only time that is dangerous is when I have to go into town for something and it requires me to pass by the LFS. Then I'm screwed. lol

I just thought of another one! This will truly show how addicted I am.
I was out in the desert visiting the B/F for a few days because he is working on a huge remodel out there that has been keeping him away from home for weeks on end.
The house he's working on is situated on a private lake. This lake is one hour away from the nearest lumber mill. He told me he had to drive into town to pick up a lumber order and will I please come with him. Inside my head I was rolling my eyes, I was enjoying sitting on the dock in the sun, reading a mag, and had no desire to go on a long boring drive through the desert into town.

I HAD to be supportive so I said, "Sure, would love to come with".
An hour later we are cruising down the main drag in this tiny ho-dunk town and I spy a sign that says, "Aquarium World". I kid you not when I busted out with what sounded like a five year old screaming "AQUARIUM WORLD!!, AQUARIUM WORLD!!". (keep in mind I'm nearly 52, lol)

He reluctantly made the stop for me, and then laughed at my total disappointment as the store ended up being a total dive. Now, whenever he wants to make fun of me he screams, "AQUARIUM WORLD, AQUARIUM WORLD". It's pretty funny actually.
