My dads the same! I've had fish die from my dad being stubborn and believing everything LFS employees say

My dad has a bunch of crazy ideas pertaining to stocking and such, so I tell him "I will do that if you will pay for it, because everything is going to die quickly." Then he stops

My dad was the one who got me into the hobby, lol. He used to have an awesome 75 gallon tank that we took care of together. He and my mom used to keep big tanks with oscars and African cichlids, too, but by the time I was born we just had the one in the apartment they built over our barn.

I just get comments from my mom now about how fish are too much work and I'm crazy for having so many. Also recommendations for me to get bala sharks because she always loved them, although I don't have a tank big enough. But even when I still lived with her and kept fish she didn't mess with my tank or make too many bad stocking requests. Although she did insist on a red tailed shark that killed everything else in my little 10 gallon...
