    Ok, here's a thread we can add onto as we go along for some laughs.

    The topic is simple:

    You KNOW you have a problem when:

    - you make space available in your house for tanks
    - you go to a LFS more than once on a weekend
    - you want every kind of fish in your tank
    - you cancel appointments to do tank maintenance
    - you get your better-half hooked into the hobby as well
    - you've got more fish test kits & chemicals than actual supplies in your first aid kit

    You get the picture I take it :p

    Now, for all replies, just start with the completion of the subject opening line

    Dale

    When a good portion of your monthly budget is equipment for fishtanks

    Your new fish are better to watch than anything on DSTV

    Ha ha ha, although I'm yet to buy a house the first thing I think when I look at one is "where would the tanks go".

    You have a problem when your deep freeze has more blood worms, tubifix worms, brine shrimp etc than normal cow/chicken meat.

    You know you have a problem when you set your alarm for an hour earlier than 'normal' so that you'll have time to feed your fish and start a new brineshrimp hatch.

    You know you have a problem when the LFS phones YOU to tell you when they have new fish arriving

    Haha, I happen to have a thread on MASA specifically for all the cool items I find in "regular" shops :p I've bought all sorts of bits and pieces because they might be useful for my tank someday :p

    Trade in the gym contract and use the money to put towards your fish budget.
