I too caught the fishie fever with a small 10gl tank abt 2 yrs ago. My mom had several when i was a kid and bred angels and discus. But being a kid I never understood or cared. That 10gl led to a 20gl, so the 10 could house fry. And every aspect of fishkeeping infected me from there. I needed more. Bought a house that had an extra room, and my fiancee looked at me and said, totally to my surprise, you can have it as a mancave cause i know you want a tank room. Since then i went from 2 to 18 tanks in the last 7 months. Every aspect to me is amazing. The science, the aquascaping, the sounds of bubbles and running water, the plants, the breeding, and the plain ol fish watching. It is indeed addictive. Does this make us fish hoarders? Lol.

For me...it's entrancing to watch the beautiful fish calmly swimming around the aquascape I created for them. They are the only thing in my life that is calming...they slow me down. Actually, I moved out of the bed and took my 5 month old son with me...and now we sleep on the couch next to the fishtank. The two of us watch my babies(fish of course!) till we fall asleep...then dream about them all night. Nuts isn't it!
