You know you're addicted to planted tanks when...

You know you're addicted to planted tanks when... you start dreaming about them!

Last night I had a dream that I had a huge planted tank. It was so big that my cat jumped in and swam around as if it was a swimming pool!

oh wow xD
i had fish dreams even before i had tanks, but i've got another one for you...

you know you're addicted to planted tanks when... you're a teenager, and you spend a whole sleepover nerding out over fish!

this just happened to me and my friend (k3xx on here), we cleaned substrate and made mud with topsoil and clay, set up a new tank, dared each other to eat fish food (not my finest moment, worst aftertaste ever...), went to petsmart, planted said new tank, traded supplies... it was fun!

When you wake up and look at your tank for 5 minutes every morning before heading off to work.

When you spend the morning looking at the clock just waiting for it to be time for the lights to come on.

And then you spend the evening dreading the clock, knowing it's coming close to the time when the lights go off!

When you reward yourself from studying/hard day at work by making time to do maintenance on your fish tanks...

When you notice every single sprout of growth every single day.... and feel like a giddy school girl when you see your first runner...

When you just set up a brand new tank, and are already planning the next.. and the next...

I could go on all day

When you have forbidden yourself to even look at the SNS forum because you know what will happen the moment you do!

Don't go there unless you've got time, plenty of it.

And plenty of space left in your tank for new plants.

Which I don't have which is why I have forbidden myself from even looking there because I can't resist the plants!
