    Hi Guys

    Im starting this thread just out of curiosity. Please state your wife/girlfriends input when it comes to your tank. I'll start it off. My wife has started to name everything that moves in my tank. :lol:

    i dont have either of the above due to technical difficulties;) but i live with my aunt and uncle and its the same thing here, aunt is naming everythin, and the uncle is always giving me shit about my hands being in the tank often moving stuff around and fixing things, very annoying:( but the aunt has out forward a sailfin even without the guilt side effect:thumbup:

    Well now just as I started thinking she was getting into my world she drops the bomb..(We dont talk anymore all you talk about is your fish tank.) So feeling very dispondent at the moment and thinking of giving up this great hobby I have gotten to love so much.

    I feel sorry for you all :razz:

    I get in big trouble if i don't take the fiance when i buy livestock.
    She is more addicted to the hobby than me . I had just finished putting the livestock in the new cube (subs evocube3) when she remarked "We should of gone for a bigger Tank":001_wub:

    The only time I have any problems from the wife is when water overflows onto the lounge floor,but other wise I thinks she`s pretty happy with my chosen hobby.

    my wife is very supportive , loves the tank due to my sons love for yellow tangs (mine which are being kept in his uncles tank).. she gets so excited whn we go to the petshop but does allow me to but something we both have decided upon..

    Dudes thats sad how your wives and girlfriends complain. I am lucky enough that she enjoys the tank as much as I do (except if she has to do anything more than just look at) My only concern is that one day when i die she will sell everything for what she thinks I paid for it. Keep Marining Chaps its a way of life!
