Just thought of a few while cleaning my tank today...

When the salesperson at the lfs asks what size your tank is, you reply "it's 48"x13"x21", why?"...

Your tanks are over-filtered even though they are understocked

The first things you tell your wife when she gets home always involve the fish

every time you do a water change, you have to re-arrange something

you have duckweed and snails even though you never wanted (or bought) either.

When you have a believable dream about fish and IN the dream think, "Oh! That would be a great thing to add to THIS THREAD!" then when you wake up realize it really would be a good thing too add.. Reach for the phone... And...
Well, I woke up at 5am with the phone in my hand with no memory of what the great idea was!

While searching craigslist for a new tank you come across a someone selling a 6 gal tank with 6 fancy goldfish in it and immediately want to call the number on your screen and start yelling at them, then think to yourself, "maybe if i don't yell and tell them nicely what is wrong with the set up and how I could fix the problem for the as long as they gave me the set up for free...." but i don't have enough room for 6 fancies in my apartment so I think i might start yelling!

That reminds me, I went to walmart and was looking at a 1.8 gal desk tank and they recommended a goldfish to be put in the tank! I couldn't believe it! Even a baby goldfish couldn't stay!

When you go through 6 tanks in a matter of 6 months just to upgrade, and then spending $450 and 6 days to build a custom stand and canopy for your newest tank ....There is not much better in life !!!!

When you buy tanks, just to sell them for more money then use that extra cash for your own fish.....You have a problem!

I can't tell you how happy I am that I don't have to pay a water bill where I live!
