Blue. you're very kind. However, I can't take credit for my sense of humor since it's all true to life...

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

When your house/appartment is a mess, but you take the effort to make sure your tank is very clean and crystal clear.

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, when people say, "You can't hug fish," and your reply is, "But you can hug an aquarium!"

You know you're a fishkeeper when --

-- the first thing you do when you get home from work/school is veg out in front of your fish tank(s)

-- you're fish tank is cleaner than any other part of your home

-- you think about tank size and placement when looking for a new apartment/house

-- when there's a storm you worry about the power to your fish tank

-- you're favorite thing about SeaWorld/zoos are the fish tanks

-- you never stop thinking of plans for your next tank

Snorkeling is a must for every fish lover!

You know you're a fishkeeper when your mum calls up and the first thing she asks is 'how are the fish'?

That I do. Must admit I clean it more than my room.

Something I'd like on Christmas but not this time. Who knows I may be able to get one on Christmas for my new apistogrammas. Right now, I'm preparing the CO2 system for my tank.

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.

when you turn your headboard for your bed into a canopy for a fish tank
when you talk in your sleep, and instead of mumbling your partner's name, you recite a list of fish species you still wish to get
when your wedding dress is adorned in rhinestone seahorses and you say your vows with 6 ft sharks swimming alongside of you
when your choice of costume for halloween is a mermaid
when your 10 yr old walks through the local LFS and tells them what they're doing wrong
when your first requirement for a new house is floors that will support the weight of your many fish tanks

When you're looking to buy a house, and you take a test tube when viewing so you can check the pH and water hardness of the places.
