Secret fish admirers?

So my mom secretly likes my fish. But she always says 'you spend too much time/money on those fish!' I've caught her many times looking at both my tanks and commenting how nice and pretty the fish and plants are.the other night during feeding time, she came in and watched the feeding frenzy. She hasn't actually bought me anything yet, but she encourages me to buy new plants/fish. Many times, I've had to explain why the fish she wants me to buy will not work: temperament, full size ect. I know I'm not alone in this.

lol that's my dad for you......very against me spending more money on the hobby, but when it comes time to buy something new for the tank, boy does he have a boatload of suggestions Just like with you, they normally aren't able to work though....for stocking my 29 gallon, he suggested 1 tiger barb, 1 guppy, and a cobalt lobster He really has been wanting me to get some type of crab/lobster/crayfish for one of my tanks. I finally did find a type of crab that will work, and when I told him about it he was very excited

Or cheap enough lol. I don't have a saltwater tank, but I can imagine the corals can be kind of pricey.
