I thought of some changes I wanted to make. I wanted to do things a little different with the reef tank. I was excited and wanted to talk with the wife about it and she interrupted me and said "Stop, I don't want to hear it."
Anyone else ever talk too much about their tank?
Ever find your spouse's eyes start to glaze over when you talk about the reef tank?
I guess I've got enough passion about the hobby for both of us. lol.

It’s pretty common. Lol. If i’m super excited about something, I hop on forum to discuss it with members that have the same interests. Even on forums like R2R there are subgroups of interests. That’s what is great about different subject sub forums like “Fish Discussion”, “Soft Corals” , “Wrasse”, “Tang”, “Angel” etc. Devoted SPS fans may not be at all interested in a Soft Coral dominated tank.

I get totally get it though. I’m guilty too - I glaze over when my husband gets excited about hunting stuff. :)

Pineapples - got to have a safe word. I start talking about my tanks she says pineapples. Too much don't want to know. She starts about decorating or that friend who's in her 30s still dating dudes that ask for gas money - pineapples. It's from an old k hart skit but is a lot better than whatever

Ya when I yelled excitedly when my clown found her nem. I came running up stairs to tell Heather and she looked me and said ok rolled her eyes. Came straight to r2r.
I saw this on your build thread and was giddy with excitement that your clownfish saw a video of a nem hosting a clown, then went into his own anemone. When I told my husband, he looked at me like I was crazy.

My clowns moved a rock 6 inches, took them several days. After it was butting up against their anemone, they laid eggs on it.

I think a lot of us could write a book about the interactions we see among our sea critters. Never a dull moment!
