LOL!

It's definitely a possibility. Think I'm just gonna find a cheap tank on Craig's list and buy a HOB filter. I have a heater and a couple spare Power heads. Probably set the tank on a work bench and call it sufficient!
I love the whirlpool bathtub idea though! And the Pics!

best option is to use QT tank. Although when my coral beauty had ich I had to act relatively fast before it progressed so I just used a micro lift. The one I used was herbtana and to be honest i wouldn't recommend it. if you decide to take this route instead of QT tank use Ick-Kick just an all around better product.

Yea I'm still trying to catch the Coral Beauty. I've gone to every pet/aquarium store around and no-one has a fish trap so I'm gonna build the 2 liter bottle trap and try it out. Any more ideas for trapping this fish would be appreciated!
Maybe I'll get lucky and this will work first try....

Well, turns out the CB is not at all interested in the fish trap. I've caught just about every other fish besides the CB. I've tried netting it as well and as soon as I put the net in the tank she dives into the rocks. While the fish trap was in, she was just going around the tank eating algae and diatoms. Oh and I think she's nipping at corals too...
Need help! Any ideas?

Awesome, sorry about your loss, although I personally have bought a tank from a wife in a garage meet-up transaction and I could tell it was a behind-his-back maneuver! Awesome deal, 55 with stand and all the accessories for $150

As a wife myself I can tell you right now the best revenge is not in the bathroom, but in the KITCHEN

use her sieve to float fish in your DT, all the salad bowls become QT tanks and use 79% of the available counter space, not to mention every kitchen towel and hand towel you can find. Explain that without your 55 gallon this is the only way to preserve your investment unless she finds you a new tank
