You know you love aquariums when you have contractors fix more support under your house to hold the weight of bigger tanks on your floor. (Not something I have done, but would definitely consider it down the road. Hahaha).

This one just happened lol.

You know you love aquariums when your reply to your husband (by txt) 99% of the time has to do with thinking about something related o aquariums/actually doing something with aquariums. What just happened with me: my husband asks what I'm doing and I say cleaning out the aquarium (weekly PWC) and in return he asks which tank am I cleaning out.

Even better. I got the stand for my 29 gallon by hacking off the top of a desk-cabinet thing. Also removed a shelf just so the tank/stand could fit in that perfect spot. Oh the things we do for our fish.

Your husband who still goads you for having so many tanks, says "where's MY tank going to be?" in his new office when you move, and you know you love him too when you let him have one of yours! (and change the sand and a few of the fish, so he will like it even more)

And then he says its nice to have the fish keep me company when I am in here (in the office)!

And he comments that seeing the 72G 4' long bowfront is like a big screen TV, only it really is LIVE!

Me thinks me and the fishies are winning him over! Baaawhaaahaahaahaaaha!
