Ways To Sneak In Your New Purchase Without Your Spouse Knowing...
10) Have the store send your purchase
with a card/note from the store owner that reads: please accept
this gift as a token of our recognition for your patronage
with us. Sincerely, the owner.

in your lunch box.

8) Turn the lights out on the tank
when you introduce your new arrival and tell your spouse that
the metal halides blew the circuit yet again...
7) When she's in the room but hasn't
seen it yet, exclaim "LOOK WHAT GREW OUT OF THAT ROCK!!!"
6) Spend several evenings in your
shop cutting, glueing, and sanding various pieces of plastic
prior to taking delivery of the new skimmer (or whatever).
After delivery, emerge from the shop proudly displaying your
new skimmer (removing manufacturers decals is highly recommended).

5) Don't you remember? This was
that sick looking coral that I brought down to the fish store
a while ago so they could medicate it for me. See? All better

4) Give her a tank as a gift !
When you buy new things for the tank tell her you just want
her tank to work well.

3) Visit your LFS on the same night
as your reef club meeting, and when you get home tell her
you traded a little piece of Xenia for that 14 inch
purple and blue table Acropora.

2) Buy as many supplies as you
can at the home center, that way the charge card statement
is void of mail-order and LFS purchases.

1) Honey, those little halides
are much, much cheaper than those pricey fluorescent ones.
