Like what kind of American words? We speak English on this side of the pond as well.

When you rush home, get in the house, walk past the wife, kid, and dog and settle down in front of your tanks.
Okay not quite bad but looking forward to see your fish tanks as you would your favorite TV show.

You Know You Love Aquariums When.....
When your family tells you someday they are going to come home and you are going to in the tank swimming with them. lol

When everyone at the LFS knows you by name and what type of tank you have.

When you can always look into your tank and see something you want to change or upgrade.

When your mother laughs at you for how long you've been sitting watching the aquarium. And you keep watching.

When you cure rocks in the toilet tank.

When you ruin your wife's food processor grinding up seafood for your next homemade batch of food.

When you talk your spouse into starting a coral room just so you can add more tanks.

When you then talk your spouse into opening your own LFS so you can have even more tanks!

When you talk your spouse into mounting a tank on the wall instead of a tv.

When you talk your spouse into an aquaponics set up so that you can have another tank in the living room. She agrees because it is green and useful, I just wanted a small fry tank.

Also when you have a stack of fish dishes to do, because your wife won't touch them after the "nasty" fish

...you are a little uneasy about retiring and traveling because it means there won't be anyone at home to CARE about your tanks while you are gone for 2-3 months at a time. Someone might be able to feed a couple tanks, but not custom feed 7-8 or 9.

AND for the last 3 years you have been thinking of ways to take some dwarf shrimp, and nano fish and/or Betta in some interesting sort of contraption(s) in a motor home when you are out RVing. Still haven't come up with the perfect solution for this dilemma.

I had a thread for it a LONG time ago...

Motor Home Aquarium - Any RVers live in and have experiences?

just posted an update query...
