Don't you kid yourself!
(You know you'd start twitching even before the first tank was completely empty)

I just, gotta, I gotta get me, a fish fix! Arghhhhhh, twitchy twitch a twitch!

You're in, there is no way out!
(I bet even if you do go to the coffee shop, you're reading about fish, periodic grunts and nods to the family, ummm yeah, uh-huh, yeah. Let me ask you this,
What were they talking about?)

I have a question. When will I finally be satisfied with my aquariums and just stop to enjoy them? I just keep getting more and more, and adding new things, and upgrading, and I don't think I can stop.

It's a little bit funny. All my friends think I'm crazy (which I very well might be). 😄

Hmm. I think that answer is... NEVER? Perhaps it is part of being creative. It is a never-ending journey and the aquarium is just one way we creative types can express ourselves.

Same here. The floor in front of the tank is kinda my zen garden. I sit, I calm down after my busy day, and I think of nothing. I get an immense bit of relief and decompression after work. It's soothing, to say the least.

Better yet, when I am tinkering on my few days off and have Pandora playing my favorite symphonies in the background... I have wiled away many hours just tinkering and enjoying music.

One time I went into my LFS twice with only 30 minutes in between. Imagine the look of "lol you are back already" I got from the employees XD

I had to go to the grocery store and realized they just put in a new lfs right next to it. Obviously I veered. Next thing I know my husband calls me and asked me where I was and am I ok. I told him where I was and I then looked at the time. I was in there for an hour and a half. It was like I blacked out. Lol.
