Something seriously wrong!!

Ok so I have had fish for like 2 weeks... And I cant stop looking at them and talking about them. There is seriously something wrong with me. It's a Saturday night I'm childless no work Tomoro and I have spent the last two hours looking at my fish , watching them fight or play i have no idea, googling stuff about them , setting up a new tank because I need to get some more!!
Like seriously I'm obsessed!!! Who knew it would be so interesting and obsessive?? Or am I the only one??
I've joined a fish forum!!! Is this normal??? Xx

It is completely addicting for me although I only have my 55 gallon. May I suggest plants if you can't get more fish but want another challenge? Plants ar like a hobby inside a hobby!

Here is my fishy... I was pretty sure she was a guppy!! But now that I look at the platys I'm just not quite sure...
Can u guys also give me some ideas on making my own divider... I went to the hardware store today to look for plastic mesh but they didn't have any...
They have fly screen made from fibreglass can I use that?? I need something!!! And quick!
Also please let me know how long roughly she has to go. She stopped eating a few days ago, I put her in her breeding box thingy and nothing..... So I let her out after two days and she ate.. Now I don't know what's going on with her

You can go to lowes and get some acrylic and drill some holes. That looks to me like a platypus.

I know what you are going through. I love my fish and I keep trying to talk myself into setting up more tanks! The real problem is finding room and money to do so. ;D
