You know you're a planted tank junkie when

You know you're a planted tank junkie when...

1 You have buckets full of plants and driftwood all over your kitchen, bathroom or basement.

2 You constantly refresh the for sale board at the planted tank.net just in case someone posts something cool for sale

3 You visit the lfs three times a week or more

4 you turn the tv on and then watch your aquarium instead

feel free to add more

5. You don't even own a TV, but know about the show "Tanked"

6. Have the water parameters of the LFS (Local Fish Stores) memorized.

7. Your idea of a fun weekend is to spend it up to your elbows or shoulders in tank water.

8. You get excited about dead branches.

I do these exact things probably once a week. If not more.

"I totally need this Crypt", I tell myself.

Yeah, no, I don't, but I'm buying it anyway!

When you don't really have any room for another tank, or time to care for another tank (already take too much time maintaining/tweaking existing tanks). BUT you get another tank anyways because you have a great idea for a new scape.. After all... why would you break down the scape of an existing tank?! You just finally got it how you want!... Well... almost *moves a few more things around*.... *several hours later* Wait what was I talking about again?

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

Giving friends a ride in your car and have to move the rocks & driftwood you've collected for future scapes from the floorboard.

Great thread.

1. When your fish and plants know you better than your family.
2. When your hands just feel normal wet.
3. When your cory's have babies and you pass out cigars.

Admendment #4- You turn on your tv and watch your fish tank every ten seconds because your fish did something cool you never noticed out of the corner of your eye. Hence, you start missing parts of your favorit show in doing this. (I waited an hour for WD to come on. Still ended up missing some because my eyes would wander away towards the fish)
