So what are the 7-new corals??? 3-rics, 1-slimer and what else? By the way, I don't think we ever saw the new chips acro
First off... when he buys corals "FOR ME" they really are for me. My taste is a little different from his, not saying that he doesn't like the corals I pick out they just aren't always what he would pick.
As for your wife being more involved
... Is there something that she enjoys to do (i.e. a hobby, a show she likes)? If so, try taking an interest in what she likes then she might take more of an interest in the fish thing.
EX: I LOVE MEDICAL SHOWS - I'm a Doctor at heart, although I'm not one YET. I play this game where I try and figure out what's wrong before they tell you. Even though Allen isn't really into them he will still sit down watch and he plays my little game right along with me. And when I talk to him about my ideas for my Private Practice (Once I AM a Doctor) he gets really involved and interested in what I have to say.
Remember marriage is give & take and a lot of work.
Also, the way he use to talk about the fish stuff was totally foreign to me. Now however, I just look at him funny and he takes the time to explain it to me (even if he's told me a hundred time, he doesn't act like it). I really enjoy it when he does it makes me want to be more involved. And when she says "That's Pretty" (if you can afford it and it's safe for your tank) get it, even if it's not something you would normally go for. That will be a nice way show her that you want her involved. AND FOR GOODNESS SAKE tell her that! Guys tend to think we KNOW. And even when we really do "know" it's nice to hear that you want us involved.
The 7 new corals
that he was talking about doesn't include the 3 new rics and the slimer (Those are mine). The ones he talking about he is planning on ordering (I think) and are MUCH more rare. We are trying to find more rare pieces for our reef. *EX: Why we got the yellow belly "Dori" rather than the normal Dori.
