My wife complained about all my tanks until she saw the money they brought in from the fish I was breeding. Case closed.

Does everyone else make a mess ?? If it's in the bedroom how do you keep it clean ?

AH OK. I do all the cooking here. LOL As an adult child living with the parents I guess I get away with more than say someone in high school.

As far as mess, there is no carpet in my house, the floors are wood except in my room its laminate and in the basement just concrete. I do make a huge mess in the basement but I'm extra careful in the rest of the house and if I do spill water I towel or mop it up right away. I even bought plastic mats for my bedroom so the water wouldn't get on the floor. I guess if you have carpet that's a whole different issue.

LOL Andy! If only I could get my peacocks to stop eat their eggs and fry I would be in business! (at least I keep saying that at any rate)

What pushed me over the edge when I had a lot of tanks was when I could not finish weekly water changes in single day.

Yep carpeting. My argument is the dogs have already made a mess of it over the years. It can't be any worse.

She says just take a look at my home office carpet now. All kinds of stains. Flourish, water, peroxide, and that's with a nano.

If I could make money off of it I think I could win her over. Not ready for that yet. Maybe a money maker in basement and show tank in BR. Need to get much more experience first.

Well I hope you can reach a compromise. Maybe she will find a hobby you don't like and you can gain some leverage that way.

Not so much anymore. BUT POCKET BOOKS!!' That's a different story. Except the ones she wants are sooo expensive. One of those bags would be the cost of a 100 gallon marine with full setup. No way anymore.
