heeheehee. Yeah you gotta know how to "werk it" in these situations :)

I can also appreciate it if you didn't want to deal with another tank...

However, just to suggest... a 29 would buy it 3 very comfortable years
at the *very least*. Remember, in a single specimen tank there's no
territory to defend so the tank will seem much larger than usual.
Certainly, having it's own 75 would be optimum... but let's be realistic
here :)

bigger tanks and you have the luxury of blaming the need on your wife!
to go!!! I envy you!!!
