You travel 1.5-2hrs (one way) to check out the stock at a different LFS. Or better yet, plan the day of it to hit all the LFS you can cram in.

That one too!
Also see rocks in stream and wonder "Is that inert? Does it have harmful minerals?.. I mean in a stream with hundreds of thousands of gallons rushing by over time it wouldn't amount to anything.. but what about in my tank?"

Been very tempted to do this, specifically the day trip...But once its gets near 1 hour for one-way.. I don't consider it 'local' anymore.

When you tell your friends you can't go out because you have to cut the grass and trim the shrubs and they remind you that you live in an apartment.

What in this room can't be turned into a tank is dangerously awesome to have. Plantedtankitis should be put on the books.

I've had this sitting in my living room for 2 weeks trying to decide what to do with it and where to put it. I just walk by it and glare so far.
