Spouses...

ARRRRGH is all I have to say. I found a 90 gallon setup on aquabid less than two miles from where we live and brought the idea up to my wife who freaked.

It's sort of ok, though cause there were other signs. Like not being able to log into aquabid before the auction ended last night.

Still she ought to know better than to tell me not to get something for myself the day before her b-day.....

Ouch!

Sucks you missed the tank. I'm lucky. My husband supports and encourages me. He thinks I'm crazy but, supports me still.

Sorry you missed that deal, but you know the stars weren't aligned right.

Hmmm...wonders what Tom gave spouse for her last birthday?

I certainly understand and sympathize with you. A good deal for a 90 is few and far in between.

Keep hunting...you now don't have to wait for her birthday!

I wasn't wanting to get her the tank for her b-day. It was strictly for me , but I'm the type that if I would have bought the tank for myself I would have bought her anything she pretty much wanted within reason.

AND if I recall correctly, last year I bought her some Pfaltzgraff dishes she wanted that matched her set. I know how romantic of me but its what she wanted.

You're right I don't have to wait until her b-day... she said at one point during our discussion that once the laundry room remodel is done she didn't care what tank I bought.

Sound like time to pull the hammer and nails out.

Hey, I just put new floor down on the laundry room floor. In return, I got to set up a new 40g tank in there. Nothing purchased, just a free one my LFS gave my to raise xenia. I didn't get to buy nothing new!

Tell you what, I'll drive up and do the laundry room remodel. Ya think she'll buy me a new 4 x96w PC?

Alright.... just thought I'd ask anyway.

Seriously, if you were a few hours closer, I'd help anyway. I love tearing stuff up and putting it back together again.

Good luck!

Sorry all the demo has been done. The laundry room has been taking TOOOO long to complete. I've gotten back to it the last couple of weekends though. Hope the ceiling gets completed this weekend.

Luckily my fiance and I are both obsessed with our fish.

Although lately she has had much more interest in our ball python... but a tanks a tank.

Yeah my wife has gotten into the tank thing lately as well. Likes going to the LFS has her own fishies. I might have just shocked her, cause I"ve never mentioned wanting another tank.
