    Several people commented that my Fathead anthias looked like a goldfish. Other friends thought that my corals were plastic ornaments.

    Most annoying to me is when they don't notice it at all! I have had people come over and my my tank is front and center, and while it's not the greatest tank, it looks nice when it's spruced up. How come some people can't notice this light blue glowing thing with colorful creatures swimming around and not even acknowledge it.
    Maybe they think it's just a screen saver or something???
    Cuz hey, we all like talking about our tanks, and our family is sick of hearing about it!

    One lady asked if she could smell the water which was quite odd. Then asked why doesn't your water smell fishy like my goldfish bowl?

    Finding Nemo was an amazing movie that is factually correct, teaches kids and adults about sea life, and teaches about conservation.

    Don't be ****** you didn't think to put a hippo tang in with your nemo.

    Why is your tank full of sticks?

    I really like that thingy (while pointing at the yellow sponge next to the pc rainbow & red dragon)

    Why don't you have more fish in your fish tank?

    Smh

    I had bought a new couch that had to be taken apart to fit in the door and the furniture store guy was holding a Dewalt drill with a Phillips head but in the end of it poking at my tank about a half inch away from the front glass while talking about his clown fish and I was like 2 seconds away from having to bury him

    Educate, don't bash those who don't know. We all weren't born with appreciation.
