My wife is semi-supportive of my fishing addiction. She likes to get involved from time to time but isn't the addict i am. Maybe she'll become an addict over time. I can only hope.

Yea I'm getting my wife more and more involved. Pretty much the same boat you're in. She doesn't hate it anymore lol. Actually she's picking up my hammer frag for me Thursday and I'll be bringing her with me this weekend to buy some coral. Maybe even have her pick one out (provided I can support it).

My husband is the one who started out with the obsession, but he almost seemed to get bored of it after we got our 55 gallon stocked.... Then I took over all the water changes, re did the tank, got a 5 gallon tank, decorated it, got a betta... then bought a 46 gallon because I really want to do a planted tropical community tank.
He semi-supports me... He'll give me input and stuff, but he complains we are starting to run out of room in our apartment... Its a small two bedroom and we have our 55 gallon, a 40 gallon (bearded dragon) a 46 gallon bowfront, and a 5 gallon... Plus two cats and a toddler.

Hubby mentioned one day that he's always wanted fish. I thought it was an interesting concept as I love all creatures (except hairy moths).

So, while he researched and researched about which tank he wanted, I got a 30 gallon free on freecycle.org. Ended up setting up our tanks within a few weeks of each other and now I have three and he still has the one.

It's kinda nice being able to do water changes and related fish stuff together. We both get excited about a trip to our fave lfs. We're both fish people like we are dog people. I don't think I'd want to have this hobby without full support of my spouse.
