Does this mean I'm a bona fide fish geek now?

Well hello there!

I have been reading through forums and taking advice and useful tips from them for many years but have never joined one until now. I chose this one as it was the one I got the best info from and I also would spend many a night just reading through forum topics. Yep, that's the kind of awesomely exciting person that's joining you...

Anyway, I've been keeping fish for...18 years now, with a few reductions in tank numbers, a few breaks but I am now back on it. My house is roughly 50% water.

I have sacrificed furniture, sofas and spare rooms. I feel I should stop.

The living room houses the tropical, goldfish and turtle tanks, as well as homes for painted wood turtles, a cherry head and rats. The kitchen has axolotls, puffer and small marine. A pond takes up my entire spare room for 3 big turtles.
I currently have one empty tank in the kitchen which I am hoping to upgrade the marine tank to (and something I'm going to need to ask questions about!) while I also have the horrible temptation of two tanks gathering dust upstairs...

Does this introduction get across my ambivalent feelings towards aquatic based lifeforms?

Thanks for the welcome!
I will try and get some pictures up at some point although I do suffer from a particularly terrible camera on my phone!
Apologies in advance for poor photography...!

I have posted my question with regards to the marine tank upgrade so hopefully lots of lovely people can help me out soon.

Looking forward to spending time here!
