I shouldn't be laughing at your plight, but that's awful! Are you and the cichlid guy talking now? I hope so!
My boyfriend is a bit like your co-workers. I do wish he were a fellow fish and aquascape fanatic. He likes my single betta Modi well enough and even talks to the little guy every now and then, but has a cow when he finds out that I have more plants coming to me in the post. Quoting him in his French accent: "euh spoil zat feesh zilly! euh cannot be serious...'ow much money you spend on 'im zis month???" His reaction to me wanting to set up a pico reef in our kitchen was priceless ("No more feesh! No more feesh! No more tanks!"). You should have seen his face.
