How my wife views me as a fishkeeper (funny)

I thought I'd post this as an actual funny dialog I recently went through with my wife and granddaughter...

Wife comes downstairs as I'm doing a water change on one of my tanks...

Wife: Why don't you get some pretty decorations for your fish, they look so sad.
Me: I don't want pretty stuff, I want a natural looking tank.
Wife: You don't even give them oxygen, there are no bubbles in your tanks, they look sad.
Me: Are you kidding, one tank alone has three canister filters!
Wife: Do you feed them? Look at them, they look hungry.
Me: What?! I feed them twice a day, besides they always beg for food.
Wife: You don't care about your fish.

Granddaughter comes over to visit and asks me why she has so much problems with her fish, she keeps cleaning the filter and changing the water adding chemicals and medicines but the fish keep dying?
I proceed to tell her to stay away from so many hyped chemicals and medicines and not to clean the filter, she looked puzzled and asks me, you mean you don't use carbon or medicines and you don't clean your filters?

Wife jumps in and says... He doesn't care about his fish.

LOL LOL I feel your pain! But my wife thinks fish keeping is a pointless waste of money. Makes for some real challenges. OS.

In all seriousness, I love my wife and sometimes in her innocence, she can be pretty funny.

Im lucky though we have reptiles, 8 snakes and a bearded dragon and my husband has become very involved in their care so he totally gets the aquarium obsession.

My hubby rolls his eyes everytime he sees me setting up for water changes.... Secretly I think he does enjoy the fish, but he won't say it, he also thinks I should put as much time into the house as I do the tanks!!
