My girls all for it. I'm definitely super lucky. Between the tanks and the house plants she says the rooms beautiful. So I'm running with it

OK- just read thru the thread and I had to subscribe....I like how you have your room set up....We also share some of the same tastes in fishtanks - Kribs, Apistos, pygmy cories, shrimp, plants etc....

As many have said, your girlfriend is a keeper. Treat her right- do not neglect her....

Much like a fish tank, neglect will only lead to bad outcomes; proper attention leads to happy outcomes!!! Buy some plants for your fishies? Buy some flowers for your girl!!!
Enough of my philosophy, I wont quit my day job to become a coach.

Keep up the good work!!

Diggin' all your tanks bro! You need a proper rack though, in an 8ft section, you could easily have 24, 20g's.

As for your girlfriend. Put a ring on it.

Thanks!! Yeah I keep her happy with her amphibians and we have a 5 year old and have been together for like 7 years. So don't think she's going anywhere anytime soon. As long as it's not illegal she's totally into me doing it.
I have 3 groups of krib fry, 7 juvenile albino Kribs now and a couple of various apistos. No breeding pairs yet. But soon

Oh it has taken 2 yrs of begging to get my 75 gallon. I have found that small upgrades over time are what works for a reluctant partner. A jump from a 10 gallon to a 75 is too scary, but going from a 10 to a 29 to a 40 to a 75 is gradual enough that they barely notice haha. I have two tanks on a double stand in our kitchen and my 75 in the living room

When I buy a house the basement is mine and that's what I'll do. I'm about maxed out with tank space currently so that means I'll start redoing my 75 this winter

Do you have a scientific name for that hygro? It looks like mermaid weed to me.
Nice collection of tanks. Took me a while with my wife to "transition" our living AND dinning rooms. If our guests don't like to eat at the kitchen table they are welcome to eat in the bathroom

Oh wait, I have a 40B in one lol.

Could be mermaid weed, been seeing it around as sawtooth hygro. I got it from firedupaquatics.
Hey our home is our domain. I'm not into sports to much and this is my "man cave". Just so happens to be a central room in our place.

looking good, I like the fact tanks have replaced a tv in living room #2. I think I'll suggest the same thing to my wife. This could be farewell to you fellow PTers........someone come look for me if you don't hear from me in a coupe of days. She may have done me in.
