My parets didnt want a bigger tank...but then they saw the RedSea tanks and had no problem with them. They blend in-look like furniture

I would mention all the cooler looking fish and corals you could have in a larger tank, and how the larger water volume will cut down on your maintenance schedule so you can spend a little less time working on the tank and more time enjoying it with her. I guess I was lucky, I found a good deal on a bigger tank, mentioned the idea to my boyfriend and he got almost as excited about it as I was. He likes my tanks. Also, a nice gift can always help!

Tell her this: " I want a bigger tank so we can work on it and spend more time together"...that's how I got sucked into a mountain bike. It worked. I hate mountain bikes...LOL!
