    Hehehe...had to pull this old thread out when I discovered another 'You know you're a reef addict when..."

    ...you look through the pet section of Craigslist, do a search for 'aquarium', just see who's selling what fish equipment and for how much! Too bad they're usually freshwater setups. I find myself going there when I'm bored just to peek :)

    Once a week? I do it a few times a week......I once looked so often that I tracked his one guy's futile attempt to sell his system for $1100, and watched the price go down to $900.

    When your significant other says "let's have wild sex" and you say "okay, but let me clean my skimmer first".

    When you fantasize about miniaturizing yourself and going scuba diving in your tank.

    When I say, "I went to my LFS to check out their LPS and SPS compared to Drs F&S, and their huge DIY remote DSB that was hooked up to the BB 240 DT with LR and high GPH K4 PHs and ATO with RODI, ASM skimmer, VHO and MH, which kicked ass compared to my small 10 gallon with UGF and PCs" and you know EXACTLY what I just said.

    Or when your wife says you should spend more time with the family not all you time away from work just 30 minutes to a hour everyday. And you had no idea this was a issue. :grumble:

    speakn of jizz in the pants.. nothin sexier than a woman talking saltwater aquariums!!! hehehe well.. unless its a woman with grease on her face and a 3/4 torque wrench in her hand.

    no, the wife actually told me "not tonight honey, why dont you go play with your fish"

    oh and it would take exactly 1024 hermits and 1578 mexican turbo's to clean my house.

    but the really bad one that happened to me yesterday, when the wife and her mom are in the house, "cleaning" and they spend more time comming to you and asking you where to put your fish stuff, bucket here, scraper there, spare pump somewhere else, bucket of salt, extra light bulbs, etc, cause theres more of that in the living room than there is anything else...

    or when the wife glares at you when you walk in the door after a hard day at work, and then asks "so how much did you spend on fish s#!t today?" cause she just spotted the new power head that you put in the tank over a month ago.

    When you see that your favorite LFS has a new shipment of SPS colonies and you start figuring out how much over-time you need on the next paycheck to buy em.

    I'm not that deep yet, I'm aiming for some zoo's as my first coral for now, but i'm not gonna do that till after the tank is moved again, and on the new stand and set up and stable again.

    oh, and the best one that i've thought of yet:

    You know your addicted to your tanks when you give up a $400 per month cigarette habit so you can afford to keep the tank up and running.(true story)

    How about having your first date with your significant other at a Frag Swap?
