Well.. this happened last nite! Lets not make this a long stork.. I use to keep monster fishes and then because of the recession last year, I gave up all 16 of my tanks but 3! Now I only got a 60 Gallon, a 29 gallon and a 5 gallon desktop tank!

So I've been working on my 60 Gallon tank for the last 2-3 months.. very well planted, i hardly bought any plants, i just grew them with some lights CO2, and some fertillizer! Anyways, my gf/wifey, she always trimmed the plants a little and always wanted to replant everything, she also explained to me how she wanted to replant before she went ahead. I definitely disagree on everything.. and since we did a water change last nite, she took on the challenge.

I can only say that now things are a disaster! it looks terrible, what would you do?!

BTW.. i didnt speak for 3 hours and just stared at mah dog! Didnt say anything, didnt look at my tank, didnt feed them for a day, and didn't even turn on the lights at all today!

I know it sounds silly, but that's seriously how upset I am! Not angry at her.. but I feel like 2-3 months of hard work just got flushed!

after a good trimming it can take a few days to look good again...
on the other hand if it is that bad redo it to your liking.

that totally sucks buddy...

but...

"she also explained to me how she wanted to replant before she went ahead."

key words here. If i were explain to my bf what i wanted to do and i was told no, i would ask "why the heck not"...but not gone ahead with it and the tank would remain as it was...

besides, you can change it when she leaves the house for a sec & say that something was dying....;) or that us poor folks were begging for trimmings lol there's a few ppl looking for some in the classifieds.

chin up!
