Is MTS contagious???!

Ok, usually my husband HATES it when I bring up getting another tank. He hates shopping for them or anything else fish related. Today we were at petsmart and ended up looking at tanks. He saw one of those "corner" tanks and was so interested in it. Then he, on his own, went to a LFS to check out prices.
He calls me and says, "They have a 92 gallon corner for 1100 with overflow and lighting and stand. This is a really good deal, lets get it."

I was like HUH???

I said hold on and I'll be right there. In that time he found a 75 bow and a 48 gallon bow that he liked too. He was like, excited. It was strange.
So tomorrow we're going back and probably buying the 75 and the 48!! And then just a little bit ago, he got out of bed and said, "I think I know where we could fit that 92 too.

WTH is going on!?!?!

Saddle up and enjoy the ride. Strike while the iron is hot.

I could go on...

Congrats.

Wohoo!! There is hope for the non-fishy spouse yet! What I did with my wife is I "gave" her one tank as her own. Slowly, she is becoming more interested in the maintenance of the tank. Obviously, you must be doing something right so now he feels he can get into it.

You don't know how lucky you are. Nobody will buy tanks for me.

Its the weirdest thing. I think it may be that we had a mishap with my flowerhorn where she almost died, and I think it made him realize how attatched he is to her.
Or it could be that I am really interested in starting a maintenance business and he wants me to have some nice show tanks (plus I need some hands on SW experience). Those are my guesses.
I dont want to probe to deep and mess anything up
This just came out of the blue!! Usually hes witching about how my tanks are taking up so much space. Maybe he fell yesterday and had some brain damage

I thought it might have had something to do with the interesting shaped tanks he was looking at.. corner and bowfront tanks look a little more interesting then a rectangle to some people.. heck look how the cubes are selling as of late!
btw. congrats on the maintaince business front! Sounds like a blast to this fish geek!

Go with the flow baby!
My passion actually started with a tank my hubby bought and never got around to setting up, so he is totally supportive too.
Don't forget to post pics when you get them up and running
