The real question is, do you spend more time staring at that new 1" frag waiting for polyp extension or her?

My wife does the water changes on my current 40 gal tank. Lol. She loves it to the point that she gave me the green light to upgrade to a 300g tank in the new house.

No quite the opposite..I catch her staring alot.

Maybe shes not so thrilled about the time spent on maintenance...but she deals with it.

My wife hates how much time I spend with my tank.. I get her to look at it about once every 3 months, her favorite coral is the utter chaos

After almost 30 years of reefing she still has no real interest in it, but as long as it’s pretty, not expensive and I don’t make a mess she’s good with it. The main reason all the filtration is down in the basement.....

I'd love it if I had a man that enjoyed reefing as much as I do.
