Pffft...fishkeeping is what started my internet addiction! I didn't even know what a forum was until I set up a tank. Prior to keeping fish the extent of my online activity was checking email, reading the news and the surf report. Now? I'm here for hours on end, lol.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I always stay on the internet! I just sit next to my fishie while I do it. I think he enjoys it because he stays on my side of the tank instead of the other side, lol.

I only played WoW a little - not enough to admit, but I was a big EQ and EQ2 addict *blush*

i too never used a forum befor until i wanted to look up something about
fish,then it went from place to place until i finally
found a home.
now i'm here a lot,even if i'm just reading what you all are up to.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.
