And then he says its nice to have the fish keep me company when I am in here (in the office)!

And he comments that seeing the 72G 4' long bowfront is like a big screen TV, only it really is LIVE!

Me thinks me and the fishies are winning him over! Baaawhaaahaahaahaaaha!
Love this. Awesomeness! Lol.

He even bought me my second large tank, so we could have one that wasn't hidden away in our bedroom. And he has so far been pretty content with the expansion from a single 20 high to six up and running tanks totaling about 120 gallons. He likes how much I like my fish.

We have had fish for years, he just didn't see them very much as they were in places he didn't go much and he worked a lot! The old 37 was a center piece between the living room and where his desk WAS. Then he got me the 72G bowfront because I wanted it for our anniversary. Didn't get to put it up due to moving until a couple months ago. But he liked it since it was sleek and had the matching cabinet!

Then he wanted my Edge 6.6G for his office and I said no way as it has my shrimp in it! lol So he got the 37G with Cardinals which seem to be his favorite right now!

So I was also lol when he made all those comments!!!

I think someone or even myself said before alyxx your bf is a keeper! My husband said too that as long as I am happy...(almost 30 years married)!

Hahahaha, yeah! I think I annoy the living crap out of the fish store managers at my LFS.

When you talk about fish tanks so much, your wife gets upset about it.

When you end up talking to customers at the LFS that your GF just leaves a d waits for you in the car. (Happened last night) I don't even work there and customers were asking me for advice.

When you end up talking to someone in the fish aisle at Walmart every time you are there. Last time I talked a lady out of putting glofish in one of the little 1.5 gallon "glofish" tanks. She went with a betta instead.

When you return from being away by yourself with no hubby or kids for a weekend and the first thing hubby says is "don't worry I took care of your babies" and you both know he's not talking about the children. LOL!
