Hi everyone, from the Sunshine State

Recent retiree here, from sunny Florida. Thought I'd stop in here to see if I need therapy.

Keep seeing the word "addiction" related to this great hobby, and although I have not yet found myself repeatedly coming home with little clear plastic bags on a weekly basis, and have not yet rearranged my furniture to accomodate more tanks, I do notice that when I drive by a LFS my car seems to swerve to the right.

Is that a sign?

Do I need help?

Thanks,

Bob R

LOL Sounds like the beginning of something great.
It's not the car, it's your subconscience speaking to you... you should listen.
Welcome to AA. :p

Bob, you're not really addicted until you have multiple tanks. Gee with all that time on your hands, what are you waiting for? I hope you got a large enough place in snny FLA to house all those tanks....

My goodness, cmor1701d, your jumping fish must carry some sort of subliminal message, because now I suddenly find myself thinking about what furniture to move where, and how I could fit a 55G in here!

Now, let's see, if I put my wife's curio cabinet in the garage, the stereo in the kitchen, the refrigerator in the hallway and the dog's bed on the porch............, yup, that might work!

Thanks,

Bob R
