When you go for a walk at the park/in the woods and as you look at different bushes, grasses, weeds, whatever and you think to yourself.. "I wonder if there is a aquatic version of that." Or "what could I use to make an aqua scape that looks like what you see on dry land.

Every time you go shopping, you have to go check out the plants at Petco, even though you know they don't have any new ones!

You decide to upgrade your favorite Betta to a larger tank because he looks depressed. You will use his prior tank for the new Juvenile Betta sitting in a bowl because your other tank now has shrimp. As for that bowl....

Other version of that walk in the Park:
When you find yourself...asking yourself...if you think they would miss that limb in that bush over there where no one can really see it anyway. I mean it is in a park and all that but really, if they wanted it seen they should have put in in the front of...
Or when you find yourself stopping at a trash dumpster and scrutinizing the tree limb in there...

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...
