    That feeling never goes away. At least it didn't go away for me! No matter how long your tank is set up, you will worry about it constantly when you are not home.

    So that I could have a life again. And money. My fiance and I were sick of traveling between houses to maintain and feed a tank we didnt enjoy anymore.

    When I justified in my head that $400 for a hybrid Gold Rim x Achilles tang was not a bad price...had I gotten to the LFS about 15 minutes earlier I would have brought it home

    What about when you schedule your wife's interview around a frag exchange?

    When your Friday nights consist of going to a LFS every week for workshops on equipment, etc., and to also hangout with fellow hobbyists. Instead of going out with friends or your wife.

    When your building a larger tank because your corals are battling for space but you still keep buying frags and finding spots to put them.

    FLASHBACK: When you're ready to upgrade to a much larger tank before you've even finished setting up your first one. :mrgreen:

    When you are planning stocking lists for all of the tanks you don't even have (yet)!

    Yeah, only three months with my 55 gallon I was already wishing I'd gone bigger, then after having it six months bought the 125. The 55 seemed big enough in the store....then my fish told me they needed more space, so I had to go bigger.

    Yes! I dream about it all the time. Actually I have dreamed of fish tanks my whole life. When I was 19 I had to give up my 38 gallon saltwater, having had smaller freshwater tanks before that since I was 11 yrs old. Anyway, all these years went by before I got another tank, but I would dream of fish tanks off and on. Many times in my dreams the fish swim out of the tank, floating around in the air around me (or the room is water too?). Very strange.
