HILARIOUS. I spit my coffee a little.

Even a fish couple have disagreements (my boyfriend is salt and I'm fresh).

But I do understand. Because of course I would need to find a nice light with LED's and moon light effect.

But yet this is what I don't understand. I can get the sea quest for the bedroom. So that's more money right there. I think she thinks the bigger tank is gonna clutter the living room. I think that's her main issue. Then again I could be wrong.
Maybe draw up your plan? Do a tri-fold board? PowerPoint? Excel spreadsheet of the budget? I would be pulling out everything over a free tank and that you have many of the things for it already. Good luck!

I'd hate to lose this chance to grab such a nice tank/ stand for free. But I guess she cracked the whip! LoL. She thinks I've just lost my mind!

Hahaha! She's like all I wanted was a goldfish for our son in a bowl. I told he can't be in a bowl he needs a tank with a filter and everything. Well the goldfish died within 2 weeks. We had him in that fluval chi, I didn't know any better so I started researching fish and I wanted to fully understand what happened to the gold fish and that's how it all started. But she wants a dog?! Hahaha I laugh at her.

This is the dog she wants.

[Moderator edit] I'm just going to rearrange it. I hate that chair and no one sits on it anyway. And the dog? The dog will do more damage and require more attention then my fish!! LoL.

And no, I'm not blonde!

Ok, I'll try to explain this to you, from a woman's perspective.....

Family items that have been passed down are treasured. That's why no one sits on the chair. It's there to provide your wife with comfort, which it obviously does, plus she has a responsibility to be the keeper. I have a marble top table that was originally my grandparents. It went to my mother on their deaths and when my mother died, it came to me. It's not "mine" but rather it's in my keeping.

This is why she doesn't want it moved. Trust me..... this is important.

By the way, that's a really cute dog.

Thanks! It is a cute dog. But we'll have to make a deal!
