LOL... I like thinking that I'm considerate enough to see if the wife minds before I do something.

That's a strategy I never thought of! Reverse psychology!

I'm gonna have to try this because I've been constantly saying we need a 55 since we got the 30!

So there's an update. Last night after taking the family to dinner to celebrate my wife's d-day, we settle down in the rec room where the aquarium is. I feed the fish and run upstairs, returning with aluminum foil. I clear off the tank and start wrapping the tank in aluminum foil. My wife asks me what I was doing. I told her I was wrapping her last b-day gift. SHe didn't say anything. A few minutes later, the son comes over and he asks what am I doing. I tell him I'm wrapping mom's last b-day gift and did he want to help. He gladly helped and in a few minutes we had it almost completely covered. I told him we were gonna need a bow. My wife asked me why I was wrapping the tank and I told her cause I was giving her the tank so I could go out and get a tank for the son and myself. After it was done, she asked me why I really wrapped the tank and I told her to block out all the light to get rid of the blue green algae. I couldn't resist telling her it was her b-day gift though.

celebrate my wife's d-day,

You know "d" ain't no where close to the "b" on the keyboard. Like 3 whole keys away. You know, it's easy to notice those finger slips and they not mean anything.

I don't know about this one. I think you really need that laundry room finished - well.

Is this typical? My wife "tolerates" my hobby and just shrugs when I get something new. However, I catch her jus stairing "our" tank all of the time. I will say this...I have developed some very creative accounting techniques because of this hobby.

My wife doesn't have a problem with me getting anything for the tank and just stares at the tank as well all the time. I guess she just doesn't subscribe to the more is better thing.
