    Here's a few to get you started - I know you guys will have some funnier than these!

    - Your significant other accuses you of being more excited to see your tank when you come home from work than to see them (and of course you know it's true but totally deny it)

    - You see a little bit of traffic on the freeway and use that as an excuse to take the long way home, which just happens to go past a LFS so you can stop and see if they have any new corals in. Or when you have to run an errand you instantly think of the LFS that are on the way (or sort of close) you could stop at (again this annoys your significant other, if you have one)

    - You find yourself having to stay later at work because you spend too much time reading, looking at LiveAquaria etc., this forum:shock:

    Ummm, yeah, let's not even go there. I'm in denial. And I used to consider myself a frugal person.

    ...you play "fantasy tank", planning out what super expensive equipment you would buy for your tank instead of playing fantasy football :mrgreen:


    ...you think in terms of how many pieces of coral one can get if you won the lottery.

    ...you find any excuse to run errands near or around the lfs just so you can pop in and stare at their fishtanks.

    Your lover says let's have incredible sex all night long and you reply, "not now, my protein skimmer is clogged!"

    Yeah that's pretty funny. But I do like Wontonflip's "fantasy tank" instead of fantasy football.

    When you're completely broke and your rent check bounced, but you can totally justify that $100 purchase you just made for your tank! (um, yeah, that was me last month :oops: )

    when you go on vacation for 3 days, and leave an essay of instructions for the house sitter just for the tank. Then you can't even enjoy vacation because all you think about is your tank and making sure there's nothing wrong with it.

    This is what I'm afraid of. I haven't taken a vacation since I set up my big tank. I'm just about to order an ATO and automatic feeder. I know I will worry the whole time.
