Cool Starting with a new tank

I have had a 2 clowns for the past 2 years. These little guys kept me company at work for 18 months I watched them grow and watched there personalities develop.

I changed jobs 6 months ago; this job I had 3 different offices so I would not look after them at work anymore, so I brought them home.

I finally convinced my wife to get a larger tank (3ft),interestingly I have been waiting for 6 months to get the tank, it is a reef octopus. Just as I got the tank my wife decides that she wants to paint the house. So I have a great tank; in the box still!!!!

The tank will be unpacked in 2 weeks an dI will be having a reef aquarium.

Welcome to the show! You are a better man than I am. I would'nt be able to look at that tank and not do anything with it. Almost just as hard as going into a fish store and resisting those urges to buy.

HAHAHA! If only it were that easy for me. By the time the urge passes, i've already found somthing else to ponder on buying. I can rarely walk into a fish store without spending 50 to 100 bucks each time.

Thanks for your warm welcome!!

In regards to my boxed tank; I cry every night. I have the door closed, and say to my fish that it will be soon. To look on the bright side, I will have the house painted in record time! this is his wife. I believe that room only will be painted in record time then all will stop so he can set up his tank.
