Woohoo! I'm officially hooked...

Well I'm about nine months into my first tank and I thought I was already addicted but today cemented it.

I put in my first xenia about 4 days ago and today...it started pulsing. I don't think I've ever seen anything more beautiful or fulfilling. I LOVE THIS HOBBY!!

Feel free to poke fun...I realize I'm a dork. =P

This is a great hobby. I just put my first corals (mushrooms) in today and have been stairing at them all day.

As for poking fun... When my tank was near the end of it's cycle I was counting my turbo snail's pooh! I couldn't believe how much he went!

And one day you'll rue the day you put that xenia in your tank and wonder what you ever thought to celebrate about! Good luck keeping it (under control, lol)!

Welcome to the additiction. It is a slippery slope from there!
