are you OCD when it comes to your tank?

I know I am, when I get something in my head I go all out till it's completed.
I look at a wall and say, mmmm, a tank would look nice here.
then before my wife can say what are you doing, I have this done.

OK now the frame is done, ready to match up the tank

sweet, tank is in, time to paint and finish the trim

ahhhh, now I can relax, i'm all done.

I didn't have mud so I used colored caulk, then sanded down the stones to make dust, I then mixed the dust into the calk to give it a more realistic mud look.

after my OCD adventure was finished, I had this

then when you think you are done, the OCD kicks in and you keep doing more and more and more and more!!! which in my case, now i'm working on a planted refugium to limit my water changes. Gotta keep the chems at 0 across the board!!!!! including the pesky nitrates.

There are 10 kinds of people in the world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't.

OCD on my tanks , personally I would say no ; I usually spend at least an hour or so a day either doing maint. or just watching the fish . I just think I really enjoy the hobby.
However if you ask my wife chances are you will get a completly different answer.

Not to that extent. If I get an idea then I think about it until I finally have it set up how I want it.

BTW that is an awesome tank. Looks great in the wall.
