I find this thread annoying and pointless.....also very sad.
Just a bit of harmless fun, don't be a Debbie downer.... there is a lot sadder things going on in this world besides this thread.
"Here fishy fishy fishy" tapping on glass.. (deuce bigelow voice) !!!
Are they real? Are they alive? Why are you looking at me like that?
People like to ask me what type of fish they are...I usually try and reply with their latin names to really confuse them, cause if I say tang...wrasse...anthias...they're not going to get it.
I feel like they expect me to say goldfish or tetra...
Then they see the cleaner shrimp....woah what is that spider thingy!?!?
Then the magnet cleaner...i have to lurch forward and stop them cause like an idiot I leave it in the tank and have had someone in the past use it and scratch my tank...so then I have to politely explain to them that sometimes a rock or a snail can get stuck in there...and then explain why I paid extra for starphire and how it's a softer glass...blah blah blah.
'Are they alive?' With a gobsmacked look when I say yes they then ask, 'so do they grow'
When someone comes over for the first time and wifey says " here he goes gotta show off his tank" even while out and about and I show people pics on my phone. Or the live video stream
"is that a lobster" ROCK LOBSTER!
LOLOL!! That kinda scares me for her goldfish...
I was once told all my corals were plastic decorations because "corals can't have colors like that" Sad part is that it was my mother and she knows I'm a reefer. It was the first time she saw my tank and thought I was trying to pull one over on her
Ha! I think this would be funny to hear. I don't know the scientific names to all of my fish. I have been able to teach my family about the different types of fish I keep (using common terms of course).
It get worse when your frag rack is built from a set of magnet cleaner ; I had a BD party so a bunch of kids came over. They loved the fish and corals. When they left, my frag rack was up side down and the dry side was left on the counter. I had trouble finding some of the frags.
For me it's 2 things...
How much does that cost???
You should put a shark in there!!!
I have a 1100 gal mixed reef
My all time favorite/ hated comment is why don't you add more fish.
Scratching my head wondering why I don't and then I realize it's cuz my tank is only 20 gallons
I keep my magnet cleaner in the back of the tank...that's a lot of nerve if someone reaches behind the tank to play with it
I think what annoys me the most is folks who don't say anything to their children when they are banging on the glass or messing with the equipment. The tapping on the glass really drives me crazy because it scares the fish and all the little fingerprints that are left all over,the glass
Mine would be when they walk up to the tank and say, "hey fishy fishy fishy" its like really, its not a freakin dog.
the starfish one is hilarious hahah
Asking about your nem...where did you get that fish?
How much does something like this cost?
