    Here's a couple of starters for ya.......

    * You run around the house in sleevelss shirts (when it is 35 degrees outside, windy and COLD) because you KNOW you will be sticking your hands/arms into that new tank to rearrange the rock--again!

    *You keep a stool and flashlight at the foot of the tank--just to sit there and stare at the rocks....

    *When your hubby goes hunting you look at the clock and decide if you have enough time to get to the LFS and get back before he gets home.

    *Your family "rolls their eyes":roll: when you start trying to change the conversation to protein skimmers.

    Anymore???????

    More of the space in your freezer is dedicated to fish food than human food.

    The majority of your electric bill is for keeping the tank running than the house running.

    Most of the tools, wood, PVC pieces, etc. in your storage shed were bought to do something for the tank.

    When you start a 55 gallon and 2 weeks later buy a 180 gallon because the 55 gallon isn't big enough.

    When you buy stuff for your tank instead of paying your bills...

    When you try to go to the LFS, make a purchase and try to put it in the tank before your significant other notices.

    When you purchase "good" water for the tank, and you drink tap water.

    To lessen the guilt about the money you spend on the tank...you refer to it as "our" tank.
