I'm lucky in that I have a very supportive boyfriend. He doesn't like the fish as much as I do, but he loves how passionate I am about them and how they make me smile. He will help me do PWC on the largest tank (50 gallons) and loves to play with one of my betta, Poofer, who likes to flare at everything. The only thing he doesn't support is my buying of bettas when I have no room for them, so I had to hide my most recent purchase. I got away with it for around a month.
