I am bad in this department...not with my fish but with my husband LOL!
I don't mean to be naughty, but if I don't fib about the fish or sneak fish into the house, nothing would change; he's impossible! The fish have turned me into a monster!
Completely taking over my husbands fish-keeping hobby
He was slowly killing them due to his lack of experience and refusal to research.
Telling my husband the Firemouth Cichlids had to go back to the fish store temporarily
so I could clean the water up for them; they never came back. They were not compatable with ANY of the other fish in the tank, let alone eachother! I couldn't stand it! I did convince him into a different cichlid to replace them though
Telling my husband I'm going to the gym for an hour with other intentions; Gym 15 minutes, Fish Store 45 minutes. Get home and quietly sneak the bags with new fish and/or new plants into the tanks. Acclimte them secretly. By the time he notices everyone is in their place. He stares at the tanks confused but assumes I just re-arrange the tanks again.
Buying 6 $40 Roseline Sharks and sneaking them in the tank. By the time my husband noticed them, the rummynose tetras were moved. He assumed they were the rummynose getting bigger. I never said a word! Just kept watching the movie.
