Figured this would be a fun topic to explore :p

For me, i throw my trimmings in the toilet (with some bleach), i normally let it soak in there to ensure the clippings get killed off, then i forget, and she finds them in the morning :D

When everytime i say "I think i'll be settle after i get this.. or that fish..." and it never is.. I think i am.. but after a week.. there's always some better filter, some better lights, or some better food I'd want! =) It just doesn't end~

1) How much room all the tanks take up in our small 2 bedroom suite.

2) The smell of the skimmate from my protein skimmer (totally nasty).

3) All the extra fish "Junk" I have collected over the years that is all over the place. (related to number 1).

My wife is pretty relaxed about it. I just get the eye roll occasionally when I am trying to add tanks to each room of the house or constantly planning something new. Once I get the new stuff home she likes it and is on board though.

That I promised that once the 70 gallon is set up I'll take down the 30 gallon and 20 gallon... I took the 20g down, but then put it back up, and added a 5g! And now I'm eyeing the 30g again... wondering what kind of pretty tank I can make...

Oh and maybe the hole I put in the dining room wall so that I can drain the tank water directly into the drain in the wall (there's a sink in the other side).

Always trying to move around the living room furniture to see if I can accomodate another tank!

Going to the fish store for a specific fish and have to look in every tank there while she stands there waiting tapping her foot!

Having the hose hooked to the tap and running through the middle of the kitchen monday nights doing the water changes while she is trying to make dinner!

Just to name a few, but she does admit the tanks are relaxing to watch so thats why i get away with it I think!

She hates the fact that I clean my cannisters in the bathtub....and sometimes dont rinse it down very well after.. oops. Hates when I leave the water running non-stop during water changes. Hates that I'm constantly harassing her about getting a large tank. Hates that I pay attention to them more than her sometimes hehe. :D

I think thats about it :)

Oh, one more. Hates that everynow and then there is a dried up little fish on her spot on the couch :D:D Damn jumpers lol.

My wife hates it when I don't clean up the hoses after a water change

She says I can get whatever I want as long as she can spend the equivalent $$ on scrapbooking supplies. Works for me.

Hahahah, nice :) How about our family when the girls are taking tanks AND scrapbooking :D (had to look at us yesterday at Michael's). The boys got some wood for building planes, though ;) And they do love tanks and art stuff we're doing as well :) Everyone's happy (I hope) :)
