Probably not, I met her when she was 12 and I dated her older cousin. I am 6 years older than my wife. She grew into a real Babe so I married her when she was 18, before anyone else put their moves on her. As soon as I got back from Viet Nam I jumped at the chance. How could I not marry this?

I added another dragon faced pipefish who immediately went over and hangs out with the other one. Hopefully they are different sexes as it is hard to tell with dragonface pipes but I bet they can tell. I think the females smell better but I can't be sure. I ramped up my brine shrimp hatchery because I have so many fish that eat them. My male mandarin stopped spawning because I can't hatch food fast enough for all these fish but I will double my production.
