    Would like to start a light hearted discussion on " you know your addicted when. ". I will start by saying. " I know I am because I use sick days to clean my tank. When there is a blackout I check the tank with a torch first then try and find the family !! Oops !! How do you know???

    you know you are addicted when your regular fish store recognizes your voice on the phone. even worse if its the mail order place. both in my case.

    you know your addicted when you keep a generator and gas in your garage just for your tank in case the power goes out , and everyone in your house is under threat of death if they touch it also in my case.

    When your looking at plumbing parts mentally redesigning a down draft protein skimmer while in a job meeting and your coworker looks at you and says "stop thinking about your tank". :ROFLMAO:

    When you go out and buy a former Combloc diesel genset that would power an aircraft carrier so you have lights, interwebs, cooling and fridge so your frozen food won't spoil, lol.

    When you find yourself in a shootout with the local PD, after robbing the animal hospital for interceptor..

    Or when you find yourself in a highway restroom pullout at 3am, tapping your feet with the individual in the next stall, hoping it's that veterinarian or reefer you met on the forums who promised to 'hook you up'...

    How about when you wake up in the middle of the night to take a leak and stop by the tank to take a look. Then you discover that someone moved the flashlight marked "Aquarium Only". So you tear up the house looking for it knowing that you have 4 or 5 more flashlights under the sink.:cool:

    Woke up the other morning at 4am with a constant ringing in my ear. Rolled over, other eat starts ringing - took ages to realize it was the alarm for tank being too full. ATO had syphoned. Oh crap. !!!
