  1. Default Sometimes I share too much...


    2 Not allowed!
    My hubby has mentioned more than a few times that i talk too much about fish. we drive for a little over an hour every other weekend to get to anchorage to grocery shop, or whatever and the whole time we talk. If he doesn't have anything to say i start in with the "did you know" about fish.

    Did you know that (insert extremely interesting fish fact!) well, maybe not so interesting to him. He compares me to our daughter who constantly talks about super heroes, comic books and musicals. lol You can never get a word in.

    After dinner I'm sitting on my ottoman watching my fish, doing a head count and health check. I see a snail just as hubby walks in. He says oh wow and there is another one..(yes i have been plucking out on average 2 or 3 a day since i discovered the first one!) I look to him and say "did you know... that pond snails can bring parasites into your tank! If you get them before they are eggs, can you believe it"... he put his hand over his face.. said oh god and backed out of the room. lol like that's going to be the next thing we're up against. oh man.. not to jinx anything.. >.<

    i love fish, i read a ton and its SOOO interesting! I want to share it! but nobody else around me shares my enthusiasm. Thankfully you guys are here. lol

    I feel the same way! I can talk to my family for hours about fish, until about 3 minutes in I realize I'm the only one talking... I've also gotten to the point where I have a separate folder in my phone of pictures of the fish I have, so when someone says "Oh, what kind of fish do you have?" Instead of telling them the names and them looking at me with a blank face, I show them the pictures. Like you said, come here and someone's always available (and happy) to talk!
    I have more (and better) conversations with fish, dogs, and myself than I do with actual people.
    Myself, the fish, and the dogs all agree.

    I'm in the same boat. Seems no one around this house shares my interests. lol I can't wait for my kids to grow up so I can finally share my hobby with (read: indoctrinate them into loving the idea of fish keeping). lol ;P

    I guess thats why we come here, nobody here has anything to comment on, except when I buy something new.

    In the same boat here...but it really doesn't bother me at all....my S O has his own interests and I have mine... seems to work. However, I do see him gazing at the tank sometimes...that quiet gaze is a great compliment to me! And thank goodness for you guys!!

    My wife never used to be into the hobby the first few years we were married. But now she even wants her own bio-cube aquarium. I'm hoping to have enough saved up to buy her one soon.

    Hang in there, he may just develop a interest in the hobby all on his own
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    That is exactly what I am doing. I hold my son up to the tank every day and his eyes get so big watching the fish eat their dinner. I can't wait to see what kinds of fish interest him the most. I want him to love the hobby, but I want him to make it his own. Go in a direction I may never have thought of.
