You might be a fish geek if . . .

Just finish the sentence. Might be pretty funny.

. . . if hightlight refers to your tank and not a type of hairstyle.

if you daydream and dream of your fish and tanks.

if you think that you really don't need that kitchen table and could always use another tank.

This could be very funny....

...you spend $300 on a cannister filter for a fishtank but make your kid do extra chores for those basketball runners.

...a day of shopping in the city consists of a list and MAP of directions to all of the local LFS' and pet superstores.

...you belong to more than one fish forum.

...you have funerals for your dead fish instead of just flushing them like everyone else.

...you spend more money on quality fish food then you do on groceries (okay that's a stretch but, I did just lay out $100 at an LFS for fish and reptile food).

...you have a savings account for your NEXT tank (when you already have several) and not a savings account for vacations like everyone else.

...your electric bill is twice everyone else's because of your MTS AND you don't mind.

If you put off house repairs to buy some more fish.

If you put off getting newer clothes because you want to make an order to fishsupply.com

If you feed your fish first and then your family.

If you look at your tank before looking at your family......

The whole weekend is revolved around what we can hurry and get done so we can go to the lfs.
