Hi my name is Glenn and I am aquaholic.
My twelve step program to curing MTS.
Do not get overly involved in internet forums that act as a catalyst in 50% of the stuff you "want to try because it looks cool" (Becoming moderator does not help this at all.)
Stay away from local clubs that act as a catalyst in the other 50% of the stuff you "want to try because it looks cool"
Stop getting internet so you can avoid the temptation for step one and two.
Cut up all credit cards and debit cards.
Deactivate paypal account. (Should be implicit with Step 3, but you never know what you're going to do when you "need a fix")
Use mass transit to get to work to avoid any temptations of "let me just pop into Fishtown on my way home to see if they got anything good", which, lets face it is almost always.
When someone is giving away fishtanks, cover your ears and stamp your feet like a three year and regurgitate "I will not take home fish tanks, I will not take home fish tanks"
Marry someone who does not like the hobby (or someone who is an extreme environmentalist who thinks that housing fish is cruelty to animals)
Move into a place that has limited space to put tanks.
Unsubscribe to any fish or plant related magazines including DrsFostersmith, Bigals, TFH, etc. (You should also remove all reference books as well)
Disassociate any friendships that you have now that are involved in the hobby. This may require you to throw out your cell phone and get a new phone number so they can't call you either. You may also want to consider moving which would go well with Step 9.
Move to a desserted island. (Goes well with Steps 9 and 11)
3 55's, 1 29, 2 20H, 1 20L, 1 26 Bow, 2 5.5 and now I just finished my fish room so add in 24 10's.
That is sweet!! Case in point for 12 steps above...
