Yeah I'm getting it lol. It will look just as fine against the other wall! LoL hey! I pay the bills all I want is a fish tank! She wants a dog! You have to walk it in the rain,cold, snow and heat,wash it,buy dog toys, vet bills, groomers, food, doggy treats, clean up after it, and play with it.

I've been working with rescue dogs for over 15 years. I have 3 right now. I don't think you want to try to convince me that they are not worth whatever it costs.....

Fish = buy tank, decor, plants, filter and other tank equipment, food, meds, treats, water changer to "clean up after them" and you have to play with them.

I'm sorry, what was your point again?

Any chance she'll let you put it in storage out of the way (if you have the space to spare) until the time's right? Even if it's 5 years down the road? A free 125gal with stand is SUCH a great chance I'd wish I had. All she wanted was a goldfish in a bowl? Eventually she can have 8 - 10 fancy goldfish in a large tank! It can still be for your son ... just down the road a little. By then the goldfish can change into other fish.

I get the furniture bit ... like LyndaB said ... it like a family heirloom ... DO NOT MESS WITH.

Your a fire chief...Explain to her about all the strange calls your station has been getting about spontaneous combustion.....Then one day when she's out light the chair and table on fire......Then you'll HAVE to get the tank to cover the char marks on the wall!

In the end, your the man in the relationship...Get the tank...a man's home is his castle

BTW: I'm single....Can you guess why?
