sounds about like mine, she knows my next will be a 125+ though. I am not being shy about it and I am looking for a good deal on a newer used one with my local classifieds

Give your wife time, and try to help her get involved in the process. She'll come around eventually
This is what I am expecting her to be. The 20L is my guppy breeder tank and I also plan on getting it a bit more planted. She really loved seeing my GBR fry swimming around in my 36 as well. I really expect her to come around once I can start getting my plant clippings. I just got my new light and will be adding co2 as soon as I can. excel for now but it will be so much better once its injected.

I honestly don't know. but i will most likely buy a package from auquabid since it will just give me some plants.

This tank is in an east facing window and has great morning sun coming through. It also has some decent light from the t8 bulb. No where near high light, but more than enough for mid light plants i would imagine.

Hello my name is Stacey and I'm also an addict. My husband and I threw away a love seat so my 55 gallon could go in it's place.

If you want to pm me I may have some plants if your interested. My tanks are smaller, so it would be good to try out some plants and see what does well?

I've always been addicted. My husband is just now finding out as I get back into the hobby! I tried explaining ammonia, nitrites and nitrates to him, and had to also explain why my 36g only has a few fish in it, lol. Talk about deer-in-the-headlights! But, he loves seeing me get so into it. Doesn't understand a lick, but enables me nonetheless!! ❤️😍❤️
