I think I qualify...

I bought a shelf at Ikea with a view to moving my water cooler off the bench so that I could squeeze another tank in so I could get this betta I've seen at the shop....

And my 75-litre tank is still sitting in the middle of the dining room because I don't want to sell it, yet I've got nowhere to put it.

I'm a fishaholic.

Hi, my name is Kym and I'm a fishaholic. You know you've crossed the line when you "hide" certain purchases and then say, "Oh, that fish? He's always been in that tank" or "That fish? He was moved over from the 100gl to the 75gl" or "That fish? Oh, he was just a few bucks". Only my friends here know how bad I am. Now if only there was a way for me to figure out how to do this same thing with dogs, lol.

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

When you start thinking the fish room/shed might be a good idea. I'm in denial, I'm just going to keep hiding them in my closet >.> My mom just noticed the fry tank I've had in there and yeah its not the only tank in my closet. You know its bad when you start putting the tanks the skinny way too. The club people are not helpful at all either. I've seen rooms with more water then air o_0!

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

When your #1 priority for a CLOSING DATE to buy a new home is based on when you need to set up the new aquarium at the new house to transfer your fish into on moving day.

My name is Izi and I too am a fishaholic. I realized my problem when i started buying furtinite and the first question was how much tank weight could it support. Also happened when I camped out infront of the pet store to buy a tank. I keep thinking that I have conquered my habit but you cant have to many extra tanks right?

Take care of the water,
the fish will follow

I bet before you bought it you measured to see how much tank you could get in it..

As we walked in the door of our future home, my wife turned to the dining room and spoke these words:

"You could put a huge aquarium on that wall right there."

If you didn't realize it before, I have the best wife in the world. Today, that is where my 180 sits.
