And so it begins.....

"Hello, my name is Carol and it's been 2 hours since my last aquarium purchase."

I need help.....as you all remember, I bought that 'newish' 40 gallon setup a couple of weeks ago. I then talked myself into needing a better fixture so I bought a new mh fixture. I was at the lfs store and saw a really neat stand that would match my furniture much better.....oh! I'd better get that too (I admit, I really like the stand).

Hmmmm....well, that new stand has a little more room on it and I could get a little larger tank......OH! acrylic would be so nice.....wow, look! free shipping!! Check off a 40 gallon (blue backed) acrylic long tank.

So, what I thought was going to be just a couple of tanks has now bloomed into 3 tanks. Did I mention that I forgot to enlighten my husband as to these new purchases??

LOL - I wish that would work on my husband. He's far too observant to fall for that.
