When you get up in the morning to get dressed and apologize to your fish because you have to turn on the room light to see what your doing. Because at 5:30 am, the fish are still sleeping.

When your wife tells you there no more room in the house for fish stuff, cause you buy something new every pay period.

(Yep I am guilty of that so much my fish ignore it now and dont run from it/ And the camera now sits by my fish towel...just in case the fish do something COOL!)

Your local fish guy no longer gets up from his chair and greets you....instead he just points to a tank and says "There's your order, look it over and tell me when you're done looking" And he knows it may be a while cuz of course we gotta look at everything else new, and he knows that now.

You panic when you can't find a fish in a tank. And spend the next hour, searching and worrying something happened to it. After 14 mini heart attacks and stress levels though the roof, you find the fish sleeping behind the filter intake, or under the heater.

You become seriously OCD about your fish tank.

And lastly you begin talking to you fish like you do the dog......or the kids....
And j thought I was the only one who talks to my fish.... Glad to know I'm not alone!

Just a question... How many of you have fish that will follow you or swim up to the front of the tank when they see you? Mine do it and I love it, my husband finds it interesting but funny. My fish will also follow me when I walk by, they will also follow my hand.... I think it's cool

Lots of fish species are know to do this, especially south/central american cichlids from my experiance, oscars, discus, angelfish, German blue rams, and the peacock cichlids I've kept have all done it

My Bolivian rams only did it at first, now it's all of my fish except my bottom dwellers; 5 ornate rainbows, 11 black ruby barbs and my 2 Bolivian rams.
