how obsessed are you?

this hobby, has turned my house into an ocean! I have a 150gal reef tank, a 55gal FOWLR tank, a 16gal seahorse tank, and a 20gal QT tank. I also have a 50gal FW tank. So as you can see I love this hobby, and taking care of all of my fishies! So I was just wondering is it just me, or do tanks somehow end up taking over your house too?

I started with 38 gal FO that I had up for 7 yrs. I wanted some thing different so now I have a 75 gal semi reef(frags mostly), a 29 gal crab tank/QT, a 20 gal sump and a 15 gal refugium.

I keep talking about replacing the 29 with a 55 but I don't need to ...

I stare all day long at a tank with nothing but sand in it. I have been in this hobby less than a month (SW that is.) and I'm already nuts!

Well, I got my 210. Had a velvet outbreak and bought 2-10 gallons and a 40 gallon for qt. Now I am considering the 40 for a reef tank (since my big one is FO and inverts).
Also considering one of the 10s for a mini reef for the bedroom.
PS, don't tell my wife, she is ready to kill me over this stuff as it is.
