    Yep, been there worn the T-Shirt....10+ years later and it still happens. I just tell her she can watch whatever she wants. I used to have an office with my PC in there & she never saw me so I had to get a laptop so at least I'd be sat next to her whilst on the forum lol. Don't worry, she'll get used to it, just keep nodding & agreeing to things she says now & again Hysterical

    To be honest she wants it as much as me. We had a 4ft tank at old house. Was very tall so. Looked like it was bigger than 4ft, now going to a cube sorta shape as it was too big for this house. Still going to be more ltrs tho. The guy recons with sump its about 600ltr :).

    I was told by a friend that he was going to build me a custom tank and sell mine. 9 month later I'm still waiting. So just bought a new tank and hoping to get it today or tomoz.


    Edit:

    It was the wife that MADE me buy the new tank cos she wants the fish back.

    Hi swin, I haven't been into Victoria aquatics myself for years, my brands used to take me in there frwhen I was 3, I'm now 30!! When my granda closed his tank down they agreed to go half's on the stock and grands never seen a penny from the fish so I don't really bother.
