You might be a fishaholic if...

1 - you won't buy expensive frozen shrimp for yourself but you will buy frozen (brine) shrimp for your fish

2 - you won't turn on the lights in the library (aka fish room) at night because your fish are sleeping

3 - you spend more time each week cleaning and maintaining your tanks than you do your apartment

4 - you sit watching the fish even when the lights are out in the tanks and the room they are in (no, I don't have night vision goggles)

5 - you have more medications for your fish (just in case) than you do for humans

6 - you buy that expensive (to you) Tetratec PF150 filter just because the LFS has a deal where you get a free t-shirt with a cory on it

All of the above are true in my case and came to mind without really having to think about it.

Gene Heitman - 12 tanks (11 freshwater and 1 saltwater), 206 gallons, 20+ species of fish/shrimp/snails, 52+ species of plants ... 10 years ago I just wanted 1 tank with some fish

... and you know you're a AquariumAdvice.com-aholic when your husband walks by the computer and says... "OMG are you on that site AGAIN???" and you sheepishly say, "Again? I never left- been on here 4 hours..."

Just take a picture of one of your own cories (or any of your fish), take it to a place that prints custom T-shirts, and you'll have your very own cory shirt!

I plead guilty to all charges except the last one (my lfs never gives anything away )

I've used the Epson iron-on transfer paper and my ink jet printer to make my own custom T-shirts. The colors are amazingly rich, and they hold up well even after a few washings.
