She moved my 6 year old IM 14 peninsula. I had digitata growing a mm from the surface. Monti cap, cyphestrea, digitata, multiple zoas growing off the glass. I've fragged it out and watched it grow back in three times now.

She torqued the tank dragging it across the room while I was at work. About 6 inches of the rhoght front from the top down is leaking...

oh no.....why would she move it? sorry to hear about this
She decided to turn the room it was in, into her home office. She just, started, moving, things...

She had no idea. She was proud of herself. Took me in the room to show me how she set it up and from across the room I saw a spot in the seal that didn't look right. There was a big glob of salt creep on the outside of the seam.

I'm proud of my self control at this moment. I haven't screamed. Nor have I cried. But I wanna do both.

You haven’t been married or not married long enough. That’s a reason for a very large tank. Super slim window of opportunity right there for OP. Lol
I’ve been married for 5 years and together for over a decade.
We met through fishkeeping.
And when we moved into our new house we setup a 220Gal.

When we started dating I had a 90G tank and a 40Breeder.
If either were moved without speaking to me that would have ended the relationship for sure tho lol



Relationships are built on communication, and that’s the important part that was missing from the OP story. :(

exactly this

This is the dilemma.

I live in a 1963 mid century modern. I have long thought that a 3' x3' x 2.5' with a center or corner overflow would be quite appropriate in the bar/lounge.

But I have so much other stuff to do. This little tank near zero effort.

A new awesome tank means more uglies, special deliveries of sand from the coast, angry UPS drivers negotiating the 5 gal bucket of salt in a 6.5 gal box. I don't know if I can do all of that again.

No this isn't a build thread to be.
