When you feel compelled to mention to NEVER boil Saltwater items so you don't get toxic paly poisoning.

When you cannot resist posting the photos of your tanks and inhabitants as if they were your children... and feel every win and loss of everyone else's as if they're the same.

Did it two nights ago... 3 hour acclamation and still had 1 of three dead in the morning. I want to give up on them. 6 out of 9 haven't made it and it bums me out.

....you are bummed out when a tiny little fish dies...

They are delicate in a transition. Just buy 1.5 to 2x what you think you will need for the tank. Preferrably on sale.


....you take your friend for a quick stop at lfs you never get to go to and can name most of the sw and fw plants and inhabitants...

oh and they aren't named Nemo or Dora

.....and ask the clerks for types of fish they never and/ or almost never stock...

.... You walk into a Chinese food restaurant and name all the species in the tank they have... Then think to yourself the size of tank you would prefer for the fish along with matching aquarium decor/substrate...
