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.

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!
