Ask the Mrs. how many necklaces or pieces of jewelery she has and if that is enough. If she has more than 6, you should be just fine
Don't even go there unless you prefer sleeping on the couch.

LOL You counter that by agreeing to buy a really nice COMFORTABLE couch (so you don't mind sleeping on it. )

I had an "I am an addict" moment the other day when I bought yet another betta on my way home from a rough day at work. I've got 5 males, 10 or so females, and 8 babies. Luckily my boyfriend is perfectly ok with the growing number of tanks and all of my fish. He even found a tank for me recently! He likes watching the fish and he also thinks its really cute seeing me take care of them. He sees how much I enjoy them and it makes him happy to see me doing something I love doing, even if it means having fish scattered all over the house.

I have 18 tanks and am about to set up some tubs for my month old ABN pleco fry, a new batch of ABN fry, a month old batch of peacock gudgeon fry and a new batch of them as well.

Been a busy month I guess...

I now have 15 tanks and hope to have every one of them running by winter. Obviously I am female (pic) so I don't think its strange. One of my best friends is obsessed too but his obsession is with marine tanks. I don't really understand people who think more than one is too many. I say go big and enjoy the hobby to the fullest extent you can afford and have room for.

I am a woman, and I have multiple tanks... I will translate what all the spouses who complain are actually telling you men, because the words have nothing to do with the actual message:

"I want you to focus on me more often, because you are passionate about your hobby and it makes me feel lonely"

Yeah, that's right. Chew it boys!
