When someone says you're "obsessed with fish" and you take it as a complement. 8)

Haven't had that one happen yet, and I hope I never do!


....but I have been lucky to have not been sick for a while, otherwise I probably would!

You know you're a fishkeeper when:

(and most of these have already been mentioned but are so true for myself as well!)

-- You spend more money on aquariums, equipment and fish food than you do on your own groceries and wardrobe;
-- Your friends begin to think you are strange because you mention your fish in every conversation (much like people talk about their children);
-- You notice things at the lfs and it drives you crazy, like dirty gravel, cold tanks, and fish disease;
-- You find yourself giving advice to strangers at the lfs (when you aren't working there);
-- As soon as you have successfully set up your newest tank, you are already planning the next one;
-- You spend every spare moment of your time on FishForum!

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

You know you're a Fishkeeper when:

-Your stockpot isn't used for making soup anymore, it's for boiling pots and driftwood.

-You've cut up all your pantyhose to make peat moss bags.

-The produce guy at your grocery store asks "What are you making with all those zucchini and cucumbers?"
...and you tell him it's not for you.

-The guy at the meat counter warns you that you can't re-freeze the shrimp you just bought...and again, you say, "It's OK, they're for my fish."

-The guy at your LFS runs up and gives you a hug when he sees you.

-You start eyeballing the gallon glass jar that your pickles came in and thinking..."fry tank"

Fish have taken over my house. I threw away my couch to make room for another 125 gallon.

Good one
...when you see a restaurant with a sign, "Fish Fry", and you wonder what kind of babies they're selling.

You know you're a fishkeeper when:
-Whenever someone says they're having a fish fry, you wonder what species the babies are.
-You start associating ammonia with cycling rather than cleaning products.

Your bathroom faucet is PERMANENTLY hooked up to some python type tank filling hose set up.

You turn down going out on a Friday night because you're behind on water changes.
BTW, these are my real life.
Can I post more?

..when you watch the tanks more than the television. More entertaining IMO.

Soooo true!

I was hoping someone would say that. I do..I do..
I just love giving advice and chat with friends involved in fishkeeping.


Alexis: Your posts are great. They make me laugh. What a great sense of humor indeed.

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.
