If your significant other has taken a picture of you staring at your aquarium...

If you refer to all your fish and plants by their scientific names.

When you get freaked out in the middle of the night when you can't hear any bubbles going from the filter.

When you play hide and go seek with your Dwarf Puffer (way funner than playing with brothers btw)

When you care more about your brothers betta than he does himself.

When you do a water change just because your dwarf puffer is sulking around a bit.

If you turn your tanks sideways on the racks so your wife doesn't know you doubled in the number of tanks

I'm laughing at the comments that include hiding fish stuff and expenses from non-aquarium minded spouses. I *totally* get that!

My hubby knows that assisting me with the aquarium or not commenting on fish-related purchases is the best way to show how much he loves me.

And he detests fish tanks and admits that it is a totally irrational thing. That was well before I got the bug from taking care of a betta in my classroom.

After five or so years he is willing to look at the inhabitants of the tank and see their beauty a touch. I owe him something for such tolerance. I really had no idea it would last so long.
