Ten Things Your Significant Other Has Bought at the LFS While
Shopping Without You...
10) Nothing: and it was a good
Norm R of Lewis Center, Ohio
9) My hubby brought home a 6"
diameter ceramic figure of a topless mermaid holding a sign
that said, "No Fishing." It now resides in the sump
as an extra nitrifying bacteria substrate.
KwajRocks of Alabama
8) A Goldfish... "Because
they are much cheaper than any of the fish you bring home."
And later the next day: A net... "To remove the
dead goldfish I just added."

7) My Ex came home with a "cool
looking shrimp" (Peacock mantis), and dropped it in my
reef tank to "suprise me." Boy, was I suprised!
Want to know why she's my Ex?
6) The diamond earrings at Tiffany's
when she realized that you've been lowballing all the items
that you've purchased at the LFS by a factor of 10!

5) A bag of Morton's salt from
Safeway. "Honey, it was cheaper than that bucket of salt
at the fish store."
The Claw of Selah, Washington
4) "I put something new in
the reef tank, Honey. Can you guess what it is? Okay, I'll
tell you. It's that cute, little Chocolate Chip starfish.
Look, isn't that NICE? I think it's cleaning off your Purple
Mushroom corals... Honey??... Honey!?!... HONEY!!!!"
Ladipyg of Chicago
3) When asked to pick up some frozen
Mysis (said verbally, not written) my wife tried to
buy frozen mice till she noticed they were too large for my
fish to eat!
2) "Honey, this pleco will
do wonders on the nuisance algae!"
PITSTOP of New Haven
1) Wife: "Here
Honey, I bought you this acro-thingy at the fish store."
Husband: "Sweet!! Did you ask about
the lighting needed?"
Wife: "They said something about
metal cowhides. I think that guy was crazy!"
Husband: "Thanks, Baby. I knew I
could count on you."
