They love the tanks if kept pristine but hate the time you indulge.

She does like the tank but doesn’t like the amount of time I spend with it. I’ve taken some advice from some wise men and got her involved by helping me with the fun things like feeding the fish and such.

I have one main maintenance day which is Sunday and if I need to do more work, I usually do it at the crack of dawn before she is up.

She loves the tank. I had her involved in aquascaping, coral, and fish selection. The tank is an extension of the home decor.

She wanted a Naso tang because it looked like it was wearing lipstick.
Leopard wrasse because of the design.
Unfortunately, She wanted the Green star polyps on the back wall.

I remember telling her that to have more than one tang I should get a Bubbleking skimmer and it worked! LOL

Jealousy in part and the fact that women don't want to see men happy unless it's inspired by them. Secondly. Fish, corals and fish tanks doesn't boast masculinity but it makes us Jovial. Women sees this as shortcoming
