I really would like to turn the garage into a fish-room. Breeding tanks on racks-- etc...
Imagine how my husband would take that conversation... not good.
Its nice that some have really accommodating spouses. My situation is more contentious. Every tank requires a lot of negotiation. But, then again, I tend to think I may be excessive and unreasonable in my requests. I have a 180, 60 gallon, 2- 30 gallons, a 5.4 gallon, a 9 gallon, a 10 gallon a 7.5 gallon and a 5 gallon in 3 rooms of the house: kitchen, dining room, and living room.
But, he likes his tech stuff: wires, cables, smart-home everything. I cannot turn anything on in the house by flipping a switch and I forget if I need to ask Siri or Alexa to turn on a light.
Its part of bringing 2 people together that have differing interests and hobbies. If you want to satisfy your own hobbies, you need to accept that Suri or Alexa, or Hue lights that turn every color but "normal" is part of the deal.
