    Okay so that said, I told him what I fancied:

    OPTION A: Nikon 24-70mm F2.8 lens
    COST= $1,800.00

    OPTION B: Aqueon 92 gallon corner bowfront tank ( I heard from the LFS today that they are discontinuing this model ) it comes with a holding tank and drain so you can hook it up to its own plumbing tor water changes!!! Isn't that just sweet!!!
    COST= $590.00

    NOT that I will even get any of these ( that I haven't mastered yet ) but if he wanted to know, thats my list and I'm sticking to it!!!! Wish me luck!

    I'd say after 14.5 years of marriage, I ought to at least get the tank!

    So, WHATS on YOUR LIST??

    One your in a fish forum so a little bias in opinion.

    Secondly a 75 gallon light and stand at petsmart is 400.

    As for the tan i would jump on it personally. My lfs is ma and pop there a little pricy but i know the owners so id rather support them than a box store. Ok enough talking. No i would really consider the tank personally and its a bowfront

    Me cyber monday i got 48 inch LEDs for 55$. An aqueon 50. 3 blue led airstones. Airline tubing. Aerator more leds for decoration. And i went to my lfs and ordered some blue botia loaches to add to my 5 clown loaches. And a partridge in a pear tree.

    Oooo... let me copy and paste this list for you;)

    Frozen Bloodworms
    Batman trilogy
    Betta hammock
    6.5 bookshelf tank
    Api test kit
    Black Diamond Blasting Media
    Stealth video glasses
    Flourish Excel

    This list would not take well with my parents, therefore I am "just" asking them for the Trilogy and money:D

    I only have one item on my wish list ... See I'm not greedy at all :) I've asked my mum for a 150g tank which would ONLY cost $2500 with all the basics (eg light, fx5 etc). See??? I'm reasonable hehehe.

    After discussing/explaining/begging she finally agreed I could get it for Christmas. She said she would pay for $300 while I paid for the rest ... Yep that's my Christmas wish list, lol.

    But I'm still extremely happy that I'm even allowed to keep the tank in the house :;hf :;bananad2

    Hey, all of you older children are asking for some expensive items! My list may look long, however consider the fact that if smart shopping is taken into account, my list is under $300;D

    Generally, the older you are, the more expensive the list.

    haha - older kid is right! I've been married for 14 years, been together for 20 so I deserve to have expensive toys!!!! LOL

    Lol, that's true tigress hill. If that's the case you shouldn't settle for just batman and money. Although I suppose that would depend on how much money you end up with :)

    P.S. I just bought the dark knight rises this morning :) so i hope you get your batman!

    Well, I suppose I could add the glasses to my parent "hint" list, but I realized a long time ago that the shorter your list is, the more likely you are to get what you want. And my family tolerates my hobby, but if I ask them for fish-related items... well let's just say it is not the best idea!:;nin2
    Haha I hope so too:)
