Yes, you do need to stop...stop turning off the computer. You'll never get through Craigslist that way

HAHA, very well put... I agree with the others, you CANNOT have too many tanks. What kind of MTS advocate puts down their computer because they find free and cheap tanks? If anything take the free tanks, clean them up, and sell them! That will help pay for things, has for me

You cannot have too many tanks, however the people around you often tend to disagree. This is the first sign of MTS.

I was that way years ago growing up. My parents would not let my brother and I have a dog or cat so we tricked them into letting us have an aquarium.

It started of with me and a 10g. My brother a few months later got a 5g. Then it went through the roof.

I was about 17 and my brother was 12 when we had this list:

100, 55, 50, 29, two 20's, two 15's, and two 10's. And my brother an I paid for all of these with our own money. Of course my parents paid the electric and water bills but they did not buy any of our supplies.

At one point they were scattered all over the house but eventually were all located in the basement.

Now I have a 150, 120, 50, 30, and a 20. I am only running the 120 right now but will be getting the 150 and 50 up in the next month. Then will build a stand for the 30 and 20 to use as hospital tanks.

My wife used to be the same way.. she's started coming around though. She is begging me to buy more fish for my 150g! She even told me she would be upset if i didnt finish stocking it soon
