Any more would become a job and not a pleasure. I love every aspect of
fish
keeping but those *&^% partial water changes.
~~~ }((((o ~~~ }{{{{o ~~~ }(((((o


I find the water changes the biggest hurdle, trying to make time is my
problem, I have been known to do them at 3am, when my husband finally
agreed
I could have a fish room,


Yes, I fully understand that. TIME and it's B-O-R-I-N-G. After the 4th or
5th tank I'm almost running on Auto-pilot.

he did it on the condition that he wouldn't have
to do any changes, so set it up with a sink and put the tanks within easy
access of the window with a drain outside.


I have a similar set-up in my sun-plant-fishroom. :-) My husband does
nothing with the tanks or plants. He will check out new fish I bring in and
that's as far as his interest goes.

--------------------
he does have one tank of his own, the marine in the front room, he is yet
to
do anything to it though and we have had it for 18 months, but he tells
his
friends about "his" marine tank.


He doesn't even have fish in it?

oh and he enjoys taking his friends on the tours of the tanks, he seems to
have a lot of knowledge, what they don't know is he gets all the info on
the
fish, water quality etc from the log book I keep on each tank


LOL!!! Typical man! :-)))

I can see that - for a few years I was into line breeding. A log was
kept not only of the tanks water parameters, but also on the breeders
and their offspring. With 104 tanks, nights and weekends my wife and a
couple of neighborhood kids would help out with the feeding,
maintenance and log writing/keeping (like Chelle said she does), but
that didn't change anything, the fish were mine! So I side with
Chelle's husband - he owns them and just lets her 'think' she does!
Just ask him ;-) ............... Frank

Too much book-work for me. :-) I gave it up years ago. I check water
parameters only every few months now unless I suspect a problem and keep a
few notes.

My husband doesn't help with the indoor tanks (I have 8 set up at the moment
plus 7 betta tanks/bowls) but does help me clean the ponds every year,
sometimes we skip a year. That's a major undertaking to say the least.

A jackhammer and a few day laborours changes that.


Well, while technically certainly possible it can become quite expensive
very fast, like if the water table is too high and you would have to build a
tub from waterproof concrete.
Possible? yes
Financially feasible? only if you were planning to build a new house anyway.
