I've also been married for 15 years so the fish tank is just one of those things to throw in there during a meaningless argument...it was actually one of the funniest things I've ever heard come out of his mouth. I laughed for hours over it!

I am pretty sure that she does not mind too much. Just the whole "obsession" that i tend to do when i get into something. If your going to do something, do it right!

She really likes my blue ram's fry. She enjoys seeing them grow. She actually is kinda looking forward to my 4 female guppies popping some time this/next week.

Sadly no.... It's not quite a mutual understanding at all.

I have had my fish addiction since I was like 11. Started working in pet stores and just using the money when I was paid right back into the store lol. I am now 42 and have a zoo.its a great hobby .better than a lot of things that are out there.my favorite tank that I have is my 75 discus tank. I am always doing some kind of maintenance on 1 of my tanks daily.

So the fish is out of the bag with my wife. She told me last night on our anniversary date (7 years) that it was fine but she did not want the surprise.

She is also sad about the frog death in this tank, see my other post for details. Anf is also sad that only 4 of my ram fry are alive today. The parents are really good but they took them to my filter for a swim today instead of the normal spot. Well time to get a prefilter on the intake.

I always used pantyhose over filter intakes on my fry tanks.

My husband originally didn't get my fish addiction at all. Hated the water splashes when I was working on it, hated the smell of the dechlorinator & fertilizers, hated how much time I spent on them... But over time as he saw how my tanks paid for themselves with plant trimmings, saw how happy they made me, and I kept showing him pictures after pictures of fish I was researching, he finally came around Now he actually asks if we can have certain fish and even told me to get my 40g breeder tank to grow more plants, breed fish, and have his corydoras hasbrosus in! Give your wife time, and try to help her get involved in the process. She'll come around eventually
