    "Oh! Look! There's Nemo! Now where's Dory?" and other things our non-reefing friends say that just make us cringe (or fume)...

    What are the those things that annoy you that your non-reefing friends say or ask when looking at your tank?

    They clearly see corals, they clearly see "Nemo and Dori", they even say "oh look its Nemo!" But they still ask...

    "Is it freshwater or saltwater?"

    1) not necessarily something they say, but when they start moving the magnet glass cleaner around and are all like "whooooa!"
    2) I second the people replying here for when they say "You can eat your fish when you get hungry," "is that saltwater?" "It'd be cool if you put a shark in there!" (I have a nano tank FYI), "is that real coral? So it's like, alive?"
    3) "Oh my god a starfish, that is soooo tight!" (When they see asterina stars)

    You paid for rocks?
    How much was that fish?
    Those are alive?
    Why don't you get this fish or that fish or this one "while looking at coral demolishing Angels"

    I use to have a fish tank, but it was too hard to keep, all my fish and coral died.
