I blame my 5 year old....

This all started when my 5 year old son asked for Goldfish while at Wal-Mart. I bought 4 Goldfish and a 2 gal bowl. Then i found out it was cruel to keep them in the bowl. Now, my son could care less about the fish and the 4 Golddfish now live in a nice 40 gal tank with all the trimmings. My wife will tease me by saying "yeah, a $500 aquarium for 4 fish that were $1.98." This tank has replaced my TV viewing, I enjoy sitting and watching the fish. So, I guess i'm not blaming my son but thanking him.

Pretty much in the same situation! But getting into reef so probably worse off. I can blame my 6 y/o too though

Yep, well I had em as a kid and stopped when I went into the service out of high school, my son got a beautiful deep blue betta for his 2nd birthday for some jamoke.


Well, the betta lives a long time in a bowl till I got a 28g bowfront, then he lived longer, now I have 5 tanks up and running(52g,40gtall,15g QT,10g,10g) and 8 in the shed and two more 30g's and a 90g on the way.

I got a brand new maybe 5 hours of operation time 52" 1080HDp shebang hang on the wall that collects more dust then an abandoned house. I enjoy making my own stories and plots up as I watch their madness.

That`s when you know you have MTS when you start to blame someone else. LOL. Welcome aboard.

Denial is the first step towards admission of MTS.

Best part is there are cheap outlets for stuff out there and alot of people give the stuff away. I got most my tanks off curbs, fixed em( made sure no evidence of urine in sealant) cleaned em and set em up.

I am going to blockbuster now
