You know you're a fishkeeper when...
...you get indecisive in choosing what fish you like.
...you have problems with your arowana and his feeding habits.
...you remind your friend sometimes when he forgets to take the plants with him.
...you appreciate fish photos of your friends.
...you have a CO2 up and running and then worry about it at night.
...you have forum friends who also keep fish.
...you have muscles straining for lifting pails of water during water changes. (No, I don't use a Python or anything that would make the job easier.)
...you worry about fire crackers during New Year as you have aquaria.

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.

You lucky boy. If I had that, my job would be easier but I still enjoy lifting pails even if they strain my muscles.:) As my tanks are big, it would take 6 large pails just to make a 30% water change.

mmm lucky its just that i find it impossible to do water changes without python as i would tip my aqaurium if i attempted it. 30% is like 1 bucket of water. its not that heavy but when ur on a chair and you have to lift the bucket over your head, its kinda hard and i know 100% i would fall and die.

did i say pyathon soryr i meant gvc. i have to pour the water into my tank with a bucket

This one.:)

It can carry only about half a gallon of water. So yeah...lots of lifting and then muscle strain.
I used the stool to carry out water changes on the community tank which is at the second level of the stand. The stand is high, you know.

When reading this topic makes you feel "at last people who understand..."
When you get connected to ADSL so you can spend as much time as you want in this forum...
When you joined a fish forum because you had a specific problem with a tank, the problem is sorted out but you keep coming back because you enjoy the chats and you now have 5 more tanks...
