My ex was of the opinion that fish were decorations that eat and poop. Then he saw my betta do tricks and my angelfish recognize me while they ignored anyone else who walked up to their tank. Let's just say his mind was changed. My boyfriend has loved my fish since we met. I can't wait to get my puffers into the living room so he might stop dragging people into our room to see the them. Then again, he'll probably be dragging everyone in to show off the betta, whatever goes into the 20 gal
, and the crawfish. Actually he already shows off the new tank in the living room that is currently cycling. I did a nifty painting on the back glass, so it looks pretty awesome on its own.
