I know it... I have about 8 aquariums in the house with 5 of them setup and every week I still check the swap sheet for aquarium deals. Makes me feel better though I met this dude in Waterloo, we traded some livestock and corals and sand, I found out he has 150 tanks in his basement.

Oh yeah I'm driving out of state this Sunday to pick up a used 55 gallon reef setup. Woo hoo!

Eventually I would like to have a gardel eel tank.....sigh....

fortunately(I think) my case of mts isn't so bad. As hard as it is I'm going to resist this weekend. I'd really like to check out the prices but I really don't have the time, money, extra space, and I'm just too tired.. didn't really sleep last night... Unless one of you want to drive way out here I guess the prices will remain a mystery... Sure, I'll regret not looking but if I look.... I might regret that... Well, I really need to go lay down... you are all pretty funny... extra rope... hahaha

I was going to send the rope to tie you down, not for extra tanks
Spend the weekend with the kids--you'll be happier you did!

Hahah!! That's great. So I never knew what MTS meant, because everytime I saw it the acronym pop up just told me Malaysian Trumpet Snails, and that never made sense. I thought this post was going to be my chance to finally ask. lol. I rolled over it 1 more time, and NOW it says Malaysian Trumpet Snails or Multiple Tank Syndrome. So now I know what is is. lol

This is something I suffer from, but luckily for me I move too much to actually be able to act on it. It's resulted in a couple tank upgrades, however I always have to sell off the smaller tank because I move too much. Things will change once I'm out of college, I know that for sure. My LFS always has great sales. I know once I have the space to put stuff, I'll end with them. haha. Last week they had a new 55 gallon with full hood, light, and heater for $65.

Join the club. My house was built 50 years ago, 1 electrical outlet ever, oh...30 feet or so.


You should see all the comercial grade extension cords I have stretched around to power my tanks


and I'm right there with you, If I turn my Microwave on I risk blowing the circuit breaker.

The place we're in was built in the 40's. It has lots of charm, just not a lot of outlets. There is a phone nook built into the wall in the main hallway with a shelf underneath for the phone book. Well, Calgary has grown a lot in 60 years and the phone book doesn't fit in there! I really like my place, I just don't like reprogramming the DVD player and setting the microwave clock two or three times a week
