Here is my latest impulsive purchase.. 75g with stand.. I havent even stocked my 30g or 84g yet.. is this a disease/addiction?? I am already planning on another 75g to go next to this one.

:twisted:

No, fishkeeping is not a disease, but it does pre-dispose you to MTS (Multiple Tank Syndrome). I think you've come down with a severe case of MTS, my condolences :-P

Yes as stated, you are suffering from MTS.

If you're looking for a cure, you've come to the wrong place :) We tend to be shameless enablers here.

A disease? No. An addiction? Definitely! Fellow MTS sufferer here also. I also suffer from MBTS (Multiple Big Tank Syndrome). Lol

:rofl: haha! My girlfriend told me today that she cant say no to me.. she is already claiming stock rights on at least one of the tanks.. She has her eye on an $25 3.5" flowerhorn at petsmart, she is also starting to demand a marine reef set up for downstairs.. Quality problems. ;-)

:lol: I am very lucky.. She has a limit though, she made me agree to sell the 84 Gallon Long on craigslist as part of the agreement to get the 75g. :roll: Little does she know that although it is sitting in the garage empty, I plan on resealing it and stocking it eventually. :twisted: Sometimes it requires baby steps. We picked up that Flowerhorn today and she wanted to get a Betta. How could I say no?

Here are some highlights of my day today:

I took down the 84g, moved it down to the garage, built a cheap PetSmart particleboard 75g stand (was a nightmare), and set up the 75g in its place in the bedroom, leaving room for a 29g next to it down the road..

If you want to read a thread listing many of the various symptoms of Multiple Tank Syndrome (I think it's up to 31 specific signs/symptoms at the moment), copy the entire line below and paste it into a google search:

"how to diagnose MTS" (multiple tank syndrome)


NOTE: the very first post is the one you want to read with the listing...
