hi all, i've been reading the forum for quite some time, but, this is my 1st post. i just got my computer back from service, and the first thing i did, was check out the forum. one of the posts i came across was, "you know you're spending too much time on cichlid forum when", it was hilarious. while cleaning 2 of my tanks this am, it hit me, maybe we are as crazy as our spouses say, but, maybe we can't help it. it could all boil down to the name cichlid forum, if you break down the word, cich= sick, lid= head. so, we don't stand a chance. i have a solution though, i read where frank mueller has a phd, so, why don't we all go to his house, check out his tanks, and hold a group therapy session
lol, len

I think we need the spouses in therapy :D We ONLY have 3 full time tanks up (and 2 isolation that pop up once and a while). We have a really empty kids' playroom that is just begging for a 6' tank (the kids are begging too) but getting approval has been a no go!

Therapy? Are you nuts? :lol:

Incidently, I went to a guys house at christmas and he had 2- 220 gal tanks set up and full of large africans. Next thing I knew my wife came into the room and said it was time to go. 3 hrs. Nothing wrong with that....right?

Can't remember the people who were at the party but can remember his stock list.

Yeh, maybe better sign me up too.

If it isn't fun, why do it? Besides, It's great fun when somebody asks my ten year old grand-daughter, "Ohh, what's that pretty purple fish", and she answers without batting an eye, "Ohh, that's a Pseudotropheus acei. He's a boy."

That either stops the coversation dead, or starts it!

Hi my name is eric i am a recovering fishaholic, unfortunately. I say this because I used to have three tanks, a 10, 29 and 75 gal tanks with fish and well on my way to dreaming about bigger and better. Now I am down to 75 gal not by choice but out of necessity due to the birth of my son and converthing the spare room into his nursery. Couldn't convince the wife a tank would be good for the nursery, therefore the 29 and 10 went bye bye. :( Maybe one day I will have another tank but maybe something like over 120 gal. Thank you for letting me share. By the way great idea for a post.

Then it's onto new world.... :fish: :dancing: I wonder if there are cichlids on other planets? Hmmmmm... LOL just kidding, ok maybe not. :?

The 1st step is admitting you have a problem. Does anybody here have a problem? I didn't think so. The second step is getting more tanks. Does anybody here have a problem with that? I didn't think so. The third step is getting more fish. Does anybody have a problem with that? Didn't think so. One must have a problem for it to be solved, problem solved. Sit back, relax and enjoy!

Yeah, but the guy with 2-220gal tanks isn't posting on this thread. I think he has a problem. I got no idea what, but he certainly has a problem. Maybe he wears black socks with bermuda shorts, that seems like a problem.
