Lol yeah that money and space issue gets in the way. I think one would be truly addicted if they sold/downsized their bed to make more room for their tank in their room. Don't think anyone has taken it that far though.

Oh and I forgot about this but I don't know if it really counts :P I have a 2 gallon bowl with my brothers betta as well... I have a moss ball in there so far but I'm gonna get some more plants for it on the weekend. And I have to do more water changes for that one since it's so small... My mom says I spend too much time doing fish stuff or "fishing" as she puts it :P lol
Wow thats impressive! I barely have time to do anything with my tanks during the week! It'll be better now that school's over, and now my tanks are my first priority! And cleaning aquariums is definitely better than cleaning my room!

Yeah I think it would be fun too! I've researched a lot on it and I think it would be a blast, I just have to find a cheap way to maintain it!

I could've gotten just the tank and stand with a filter, heater, lid and light in a kit for 300!
And thats a great deal! I check out craigslist frequently and got my 55 gallon from there! But I do have to check out kijiji.

Lol well I have a good mom she does think I spend a lot of time "fishing" but she let's me do it. she's not really an animal person either, but she let's me keep a dog a cat and five fish tanks. Lol keep me posted about your new tank Kay? New tanks are always exciting!

I checked on my convict cichlid eggs every hour for three days and my family looked at me like I was crazy.

Pshhh... 5? I've got 7 and have plans to set up more soon. And today at the LFS my boyfriend saw their new-ish 330 gallon reef and asked why I haven't set up a reef yet! After explaining that coral would be an expensive meal for my puffers, he understood but also gave the go ahead for a second saltwater tank when we can afford the lighting and equipment.

Haha thats cool! That'd be awesome! and I can't have tons of tanks cuz my parents restrict the amount of tanks I have, plus I'm the only one who takes care of them and with school I don't have tons of time, I don't want to set up all of them and then have to take them down when I'm going to college (if I go far away), and I don't have a decent paying job yet so I don't think I could finance more than 5. I definitely wish I had more, but there are a lot of factors stopping it!

My friends say I waste my time with fish but I know that isn't true. It's more productive than playing xbox for 12 hours
