Sorry if this is a stupid question, bit why not get your wife her goldfish and put them in your old tank? If it means being able to get a free tank why not?

I don't like those goldfish and I'm gonna end up takin care of them as well as mine and then my new SW tank. I would do it if she would get maybe a 10-20 gallon and 1 of those goldfish and then maybe. But everything has to just the way she likes it. She only wants a bowfront so she had said a 75 gallon BF would be good. But now she changed her mind. But what I really don't get/understand is it's ok to get the SW tank/stand and the whole set up but I can't get a bigger tank for what I have.

It's gonna be more money and time consuming to do the SW tank then it would to just set up the either free tank or if not due to size and color and shape. Get the 75g BF and within a few hours have it set up and running.

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?

Does the tank have to go into THIS exact room? Any other rooms in the house that could accomodate it?

I would like the tank with the Africans in the living room and she said yes to the SW in the corner of the bed room.

Haha!! Well... I may be onto something. She agreed to go look at tanks a Petsmart, there having a sale. I talked to her about craigslist and she didn't like the idea of someone's old used tank in the house(no garage or yard live in apt building) she didn't want it here and not knowing where it's been or what's been in it. She's a bit of a germaphob anyway... She said she wants to see the tanks/stands in person to see if she likes any of them and of they will work in the living room. So I guess that's a start but I'm not sure what they will have in stock so maybe I'll have to drive around to all of them after work lol. Or I could just call them and ask.

Good idea! That's what I'll do. I'd be soooooo happy with a 75 it would make me feel better a out my fishy's too! I know that would be happy with the bigger size tank. I'm gonna offer her a day away also. A spa day for her.
