....well, last night I had a dream that I woke up one morning, went to check the fish, and they'd gone! Overnight, someone had come in and replaced my little 5 gallon with about 10 new tanks. I had 6 10-20 gallon betta tanks, all stocked with stunning bettas, and another 4 or 5 huge tanks, all fully stocked with gorgeous fish, beautifully planted, and I couldn't find my beloved betta and corys anywhere! Eventually I did find them, and then started worrying if the tanks had all been cycled properly!

Have you all sent me insane? Maybe I should turn the computer off for a while and go for a walk?....get some fresh air....

Needless to say I was relieved to see everything untouched when I got up this morning - maybe a little disappointed too, if I'm to be totally honest with myself...

Been there, done that. Ive had a few, usually involving bettas. I had one where I was looking at "my" fish tank, and suddenly I was thinking HOLLY CRUD! My betta was trying to eat all the fish, so I had to save them.

I've so been in that situation, where someones taken your fish and replaced them, and then you wonder about compatibility and cycling, and it just turns into a mess... then you wake up. I've had countless dreams like that since joining fishlore.

YYYEEEESSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

None of my "non-Fishlore" friends or my family understand my fish passion! They think I'm nuts. But, they always appreciate my tanks when they come over and see them.

I dreamed that my betta jumped from his 5gallon tank to my 75gallon tank and started harassing my discus and clown loaches.( This was especially weird because I didnt own any discus at that time) Even weirder is that my Betta tank is at least 10m away from my 75gallon. WEIRD!!

omg i had a creepy dream about fish too last night, i had went to a new lfs and i asked them if they had a breeding pair of green dwarf gouramis and they said yes and they took me into this back room where they kept all these strange fish. They showed me the fish and i saw aN ILLEGAL breeding stimulant! I started to run out of the room when they grabbed me. I pushed one off into the rosy minnow tank and the minnows started attacking him and i shrugged the other off.i ran into my car and started my engine. i drove to my grandmas and hid in her basement. they found me in the basement and they had an army of quail??? i grabbed a shotgun off the fireplace mantle and started to shoot the advancing quail. Then the store owned's hired assasin pulled out a gun then i woke up

i know weird dream

No doubt! Non-fish and animal people just don't get it!

I think maybe some fresh air would be good lol.

I've had fishy dreams where I'm back in my childhood bedroom and I find that I left a huge amazon aquarium behind when I grew up and moved out. The fish have been in there breeding for 20 years. There are plants growing out of the tank and filling the room. (the same bedroom is my nephew's room now so he probably would have noticed that lol)

In another one I open the trunk on my old car and two of my angels (to specific ones) are the size of dinner plates and can fly. They kind of float away slowly and I try to catch them but they drift up to far.

I think maybe we are all nuts!

If you're looking for sanity, you're in the wrong place However, if you're looking for fishy INSANITY, you're right where you need to be
