Also I'm getting her more involved as well. She liked the Africans because of color and thought they looked pretty and more alive, so I re homes the convicts back to my friend and she picked out about I'd say 6 Africans and now she wants to feed them

She's just not so into the water changing lol, but I'll handle that for now. She does help though...

I have those same problems but I do have to say, 280$ for a 75 gallon really is kind of pricey...especially since it isnt complete...just my opinion

Yeah I'm not gonna go for it. I have time so I'll wait for a real good deal.

Even if I just get it and put it on storage for the time being. At least I'll have gotten something at a great price.

She has an OK grasp on how things work, though I haven't given her all the boring details.
Getting the wife on board is the hardest part??? How about getting my husband on board!!!! He thinks the fish & tanks & the water changes & my desire for bigger tanks is RIDICULOUS!!!! Wait til i start breeding.....LMFAO!

Well, hey convict, petsmart has a marineland 60 with stand on sale for $249, or a 75 for $206, and those are brand new. I think you should get the wife more invoved, cause there's always going to be CL and/or sales...always. If you get her on board and involved, maybe she'll even want her own tank... then you two could go to town together....

Only when she's around. Otherwise, a happy wife = an unhappy wallet.
