lul, I can say the same.... I shame myself for having such a horribly messy room.
While Jade and the guppies have a rather clean dresser to sit upon, the floor in front of them has 4 empty tanks (one with sand in it) an lots and lots of paper and bubblewrap. (Just got done packing/sending two fish.)
Eli and Samm are okay....
Where it gets cluttered is here. Ember is sitting in the middle of a huge pile of receipts and papers I need to get through, Rowan is hiding my bills and hiding behind my laptop and a few movie cases, Nights and the Three Legends are on another dresser that has fish food sitting neatly on top of an alarm clock, lei, stuffed animal frog, broken cell phone, Altoids can, and a few drawing notebooks.
If it doesn't sound bad, it's a lot worse than it sounds, lol.

Exactly why my room looks horrible. I care for my fish more than the appearance of my room. |D
My grandmother also thinks the 5 bettas, 6 random fish, 5 nerite snails, 1 turtle, and 1 shrimp is too much. Even if it's just a ghost shrimp I'm bringing home, she'll roll her eyes and ask "Another?"
It's not that she doesn't like pets... she just doesn't like it when they die. >> She feels too bad, especially since I go through burying them all, even fish.
