She's cool, even asked about my new fish the other night! I suppose there's always a betta choice out there though!

And this thread is titled no one wants to talk about fish, so mods please do not tell me this is off topic chatter.

Haha I posted this and then I end up not responding to anything anyone wrote. Sorry about that. But I'm glad to know at least someone is out there to bring some random fish topics up to. It gets kinda old getting the blank stare and the occasional "uh huh...cool" or just flat out laughter. I posted this after being at work and this girl said to me "at least you already have a wife and kids so your not weird and alone with your fish tank". people around here just don't seem to have much of an appreciation for a saltwater aquarium I guess.

Any time I try to talk fish with my friends, it usually ends up in "dude, you should buy some pirhanas" or something along the lines of two Bettas in the same tank like they'll tear each other apart like sharks or something lol

Looking for people to talk about fish with is the same reason I joined this or any forum for that matter. I guess I'm lucky I was already married when I discovered the hobby, but my wife doesn't get it. Although she loves the planted tank in our bedroom! None of my friends are the least bit interested either. I feel like though, with almost anyone, if they would just try keeping aquariums(the correct way), they would totally get it fast.

I did that with my brother. He took really no interest till I got him a Berta and now he has a 45g and loves the hobby.

I don't see anything wrong with that. What bugs me the most is then people turn around and start talking about how they either slept all day or watched Netflix all weekend. At least we are building and creating something and taking care of amazing creatures.
