Some convincing to do...

I need some good talking points to convince my fiancée we "need" a bigger tank. Any suggestions greatly appreciated

There really isn't a good reason for an aquarium besides they are beautiful and a great hobby.

Bigger is better. More room for error, more fish, more corals more everything!! Go big or go home! (coming from a guy who has a 8gallon and a 29gallon)

I will now pass on the lesson that my mother taught me (she seriously tells me this all the time). Shiny bobbles make everything better. A nice necklace, earrings, or ring will make your tank much larger with much less effort.

Hahaha! I already got her a ring. A custom built, exact one she wanted. I wish I was into salt water tanks when I gave it to her
