A fish hobbyist miracle!
Hi all,

So my husband has been giving me a hard time (a really hard time) about getting my next aquarium (I've been drooling over the thought of a 75 gal, planting it and creating a nice community tank). He thought I should wait until we buy a house so that we don't have to move it. So I got a couple new small tanks to hold me over till that time comes. I've been really sad to not be able to manifest my dream tank.


When I came home this evening, he said, "so I was talking to my dad, and he thinks that since you're so supportive of all of my interests and hobbies, that I should be more supportive of your hobbies, and that this would be the best thing for our marriage". An hour later he offered to pay for half of my next tank.


I keep expecting to wake up any minute now.

You need to give your father-in-law a great big hug!!!

Awww how sweet! Very kind of him and I'm glad he supports you :-) Yea once you guys get a house moving a 75g won't be as easy as a 10g but it can be done if you have a extra set of hands so don't worry there :-)
