    Are YOU a reefneck??

    You just MIGHT be a reefneck :

    If you have more food in your fidge for the tank then you do for yourself

    if your fish drink and bathe in cleaner water than you do..

    If your living room has more plumbing than your kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room combined..

    If your best friend calls you up and tells you they have crabs and you respond with "are they reef safe"....

    If you've ever had visitors to your home smell your skimmate.

    If people come to visit your tank more than they come to actually see you.

    If you carry a picture of your reef tank in your wallet

    If you have more money in your tank than in your bank account.

    If you own more than 3 empty garbage cans that have never had garbage in them.

    If when visiting your grandmother in the hospital you are more interested in stealing an IV drip line to use for your auto top off.

    If you suddenly brake in the middle of the road throwing your wife into the windshield because you thought you saw the glow of actinics in the house you just passed.

    If your lfs asks you for advice.

    If your not an elecrician but can wire a mh lamp in 10 min.

    If the words "nemo" and "dori' are considered worse than the "F" word....

    If you can tell the sg of water by taste.

    If as you drive down the road you wonder the kelvin rateing of the headlights comming at you.

    If your childrens' kiddie pool starts to look like a good refugium.

    If you watch a Tums commercial and wonder if it would increase the calcium in your tank also.

    I'm all but 5 of them.

    Here's a few more:

    All your five gallon buckets came from salt.

    If your electric bill is over $200 year round.

    If you drive over a hour to get corals/fish.

    If your reading this. LOL

    You might be a reef neck if you insist that the Christmas card picture that you send to all your family and friends has your reef tank in the background... =)
