When you spend more time in front of it instead of watching football on your brand new 55" LED 3D TV.

You tear down tanks to make maintenance easier for your self only to end up buying an even bigger tank and think of things that can be done with some of the old tore down tanks because of corse they cant be gotten rid of and they look so lonely when they are empty

When you try to persuaded your mom to send you siblings to an orphanage so you can put fish tanks in there rooms.
When you look forward to the orthodontist because it means you can go by the lfs.
When you do 2-3 10% water changes on your quarantine tank daily.
When you cry over a new fish dyeing but not your great great aunt (in my defense she forgot me a year ago) (◎_◎)
When you stay up until 1am doing research for a new fish and homework you decided wasn't as important as your water change.

When you want it to be bed time for your kids so you can do a water change then stare at your tank in peace (don't judge me...lol).

Or when you would rather not feed your crew for a day than let your husband do it for fear he will over feed...

Cleaning your lounge room involves deconstructing stone features you are toying with for your next tank.

Scrubbing rocks in a bucket of hot water is something you look forward to but you hate doing dishes like getting dental work.

You stop during bushwalks to inspect uprooted trees in hopes of finding that perfect driftwood piece. You also carry a fold up saw capable of harvesting it when you find it.

You have window sills dedicated to wild aquatic plant collections and a desire to incorporate some safely into your tanks.

You have every scrap of paper near your computer covered with plant names and your LFS winces whenever you wait near the counter empty handed or worse with several envelopes (I have been known to check three times weekly if my plant order has come in yet).

When your LFS is considering planting a tank and asks for advice with plant types.

When you start to recognize other frequent LFS shop visitors and know a few of them and their pets names.

When none of the 50-60 peices of driftwood available at our LFS are quite good enough.

Friends/family sometimes bring a rock they found to your house and you consider it an excellent gift. I have a niece that is a great collector and recognizes when one of her rocks goes into a tank.
