Ugh I guess this is part rant and part question... does your family ever make a fuss about water changes?
Mine does. No mater when I wanna do it, my mom, my brother, ect, will tell me to wait and wait and wait cause it's 'annoying'. They'll try to make me wait until it's too late cause everyone's going to bed and augh.
And then my mom's alwyas on me, telling me I'm changing my water too much and it's going to kill my fish. That kind of bugs me, no matter how many times I explain to her she holds firm. After all, my grandma has a fish tank that's been running for YEARS and she only ever tops off evaporated water (without even using a declorinator). My mom's always telling me I spend too much on my fish, they don't need the things I get them, ect. Just in general. She likes them, and likes looking at them. But not me doing things.
I guess this is just kinda half rant, too. I live at home, but I have my own job and I don't ever ask my mom to pay for any of my fish stuff, and it's starting to make me feel bad how much I get talked down to about my tanks.
