Just thought I'd start a thread for the most silly/annoying/random things people say to you when they see your planted tank. My current tank is on my desk at work, so I have the... "opportunity" to hear a lot of comments. I'll start this off with a few:

"I donno... that just seems like a lot of work..."

"You should brew some beer!"
(Re: DIY co2 system. Variations on this include "you brewing some beer?" "what kind beer you brewin'?" etc. This is always followed by a laugh as if to indicate this is a hilarious comment and is surely the first time I have heard it.)

"What kind of fish do you have in there?"
(My tank isn't yet established, so I don't have any fish in there... I would think this is quite obvious... :confused1:)

My father, this week:
"How much fertilizer do you dump in there? Your poor fishies!"

A couple of hours later:
"Your plants do grow at an impressive rate!"

Maybe not silly but what I have told my friends: "I have more electric cords running my two planted tanks than I have hooked up to my TV, surround sound system, XBOX, PS3, and gaming computer combined"

And from my mom: "Why bother with real plants, just get fake ones"
