She is such a team player, I wouldn't want her to have to suffer any more than she has. I like that girl too much.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Mine is on board most of the time also, although she did draw the line when she found out about turning the swimming pool into a goldfish pond.

That's so funny because every time I look at a swimming pool I envision the same thing..

The thing is.. I look at it as a space issue when dealing with my old lady. This is why I really love that thread by badxillan with the stack build stands.. If you stack them.. it still takes up the same amount of space and then its hard to say that its taking up too much space.. of course electric bill may be an issue still lol.

Speaking of electric bills.. I recently went to Home Depot and replaced all the light bulbs with energy saving bulbs.. to try and cover the added cost of the tanks.. one less reason to argue about the tanks. IDK if its going to work..

" For now no more" never say never....... I ended up here because i was looking to start a salt water tank( something thathas been a life long dream)...my wife asked "how big"... Im afraid to tell her that it will be just like our little 16...times 5..work( and puppy eyes) will commence after the Holi-daze...

BTW.. I had over a dozen tanks going on at once in the past... i was much younger and single back then.. the musty smell from the carpets never bothered me... the women I brought to see them.. well not so much...so it's been 30 years since my last bout with MTS...so you can see.. it can go into remission.. but you are never cured.

oh yea.. besides the fish tank i have a gold fish pond... hmmmm..

Wise men speak when they have something to say...fools speak because they have to say something.
