I've been doing it for six and a half months, and I have 6 tanks plus one that isn't in use (dad insisted that when we upgraded, it was actually an upgrade, not a "we need this tank and the other one too!" Sorta thing) but I want to set it up as a shrimp tank. Oh I forgot the little one gallon unfiltered unheated bowl we are using to grow Christmas moss (along with algae) and we might get a shrimp for it! Berried female, here I come! XD

I also came into it because I hate how the fish are treated at petco and I love the little babies!

When you run out of flat surfaces for tanks so you start adding them slowly but surely in your girlfriend's house.

Also, writing this while sitting outside of my LFS waiting for them to open.

When you have enough spare items floating around the house that you can throw together a whole system in a minutes notice for your hubby when he brings home a new goldfish that will eventually be put in the pond.

Yeah, this is my life. Hubby will find goldies all winter long. We raise them up nice and strong until summertime, then release them into the pond.

When you spend hours staring at an aquarium, and carefully observing each scale of your fish, each fin, and meticulously noticing even the slightest amount of algae, or left-over feed sitting on top of substrate, or something left behind by an invertebrate (e.g. shell of shrimp) and of course, immediately doing something about it,

before returning back to that hours of staring again

I thought I was the only one who did this. I will sit and stare for hours. My hubby will ask what I'm doing, I tell him making sure things are fine. He'll walk off, come back some time later, I'm still sitting there. He'll ask again, I'll tell him the same thing. He'll look at me funny, walk off again. He comes back, I'm still sitting there, he'll ask me if I found something, if I say "grab the python" he knows something is up.

It's called training the spouse.

When you save you $25 per week spending money for the Aquarium Society Spring Auction and sale, and have to go by yourself because no one else wants to spend the day with the fishes!
