    I'm sure most of us get all sorts of moaning and comments from our spouse or partner, about our tanks... So lets hear them.
    Here are a few of mine:

    Hey... That dishcloth is for the kitchen and not the fishtank!

    Why is there always water on the floor in front of the tank...one day i'm gonna slip and break my neck!

    I can't sleep... the fishtank is making too much noise!

    Why is there toilet paper superglued to the coffee table?

    We are always broke because the fishtank uses so much water and electricity! (if only she knew... Those are the least of the tanks expenses)

    Hey... Thats a dinner plate, not a cutting board for fishfood!

    Why is there so much salt on the wall and floor?

    You pay more attention to that bladdy thing than me!

    If the RO machine floods my kitchen again... I'm moving out!

    Hey... I was still using that stocking!

    Don't use that coffee cup to defrost the fishfood

    I'm sick and tired of all your fish crap lying around on the dining room table

    thats excellent as it means you wont be running to the toilet five times an hour!!!

    comments I get are along the lines of... you spend so much on your tank, youll never be able to afford your own place

    youd rather spend time looking/ fiddling with your tank than with me

    My 3 most common are:
    When did you get that new fish?
    How much electricity does that thing use?
    All you think about is your bloody fish tank!

    Sometimes: Have you worked out howmuch the tank costs up to now?

    My tank is in a room that used to be a bar and does not stress her all the time: Are you packing your tools away tonight?
