My man has bought me my two biggest tanks. He helped in the beginning with the set up and what not. In the first month I would catch him staring aimlessly at the first tank (the 29g) just watching the fish.
We would occasionally discuss the fish needs, and he would voice his opinion. These days he seems to stop and look at the 15g more... he has a love hate relationship with my betta (the betta use to not like him and flare at him anytime he came by the tank, but they're cool now, lol).
But these days he doesnt have the enthusiasm he had in the beginning. So I found TFK, and am fortunate enough to have a best friend who is a fellow fish freak. Although my bestie has often told me to shut up because she is sick of our conversations seeming to always lead to fish talk... and thats ok, sometimes I need to be brought out of the water, lol.
Sometimes people not totally interested will enjoy it, and then get bored or tired of it. I think of it this way, I have my expensive fish hobby, and my man has his annoying and equally expensive video game hobby. He tried to get me into video games 2 years ago by buying me the Nintendo Wii... and he gets frustrated that I might use it once every 6 months if I get bored enough.
The only suggestion I can make is maybe finding out what kind of fish he would REALLY love to have, and setting up a tank for him to care for and love that has the fish of his desire in it. My man seemed to really like the cichlids I use to have, but not enough for me to get a nice 60+ gallon tank, LOL!!!
Good Luck either way!!!
