MTS temptation

Well since my MTS has been made worse by STS, I started looking around for tanks. LOL, I keep telling you all I don't NEED a kitchen table. Located a 75 gal with tank, stand canopy with locking door, moonlights, fluval 404, substrate ornaments, 6 mos warranty, visitherm 300 w heater, python kit, magfloat, aquaclear 300, glass tops, dual flourescent light, food and net. All for 500 Can. Going to see it later today. If I get it that would make #10. 8O

The only thing that makes me cringe is the process it will take to move 10 tanks when we get a new house this spring LOL. But it is a necessity, I need more room for more tanks. And the cats could use some more room as well. Please notice we are fine, no more room needed for us LMAO.

NOT set it up? Yeah like I could just have a 75 gal hanging around LOL. I'd cycle it at least. Yes JC this has become a serious addiction. The good news is that it is just the hubby and me and we eat in the living room. So we can see the fish while we eat!

Then you will have to get 4 more cats, so then each cat has his own tank to watch... and by watch I mean plan a way to get into the tank and take over!

If there ever was a line....I think you crossed it after tank #5 or so. That is some husband you have there...... what does he get for allowing your indulgence? I hope it's something good like season tickets to everything! 8)

I think I read about STS from your favorite professor, Dr. Ivanna Phishtank.

STS = shrunken tank syndrome. A disorder of aquariums such that they shrink in size. This disorder has two primary causes. First is when the tank is new. After adding the first few fish the tank shrinks in size. A tank that should house 25 fish for example gets intimidated so it shrinks so only 15 fish will fit. The second cause of STS is when the aquarist desires more fish. It is believed that subconsiencly the tank freaks out at having more fish so it shrinks to prevent any new additions.

Both STS which the aquarium presents and MTS which the aquarist presents feed upon one another. Each exacerbates the other. It is unknown at this time if the two disorders are manifestations of the same pathogen or if they are independent. So far they both need to be treated.
