If only my other half took me seriously. She'd rather take the advice of an employee over listening to me, who's done the research. (Neons with betta, a light that produces 5-8 PAR for plants that are expected to grow, better filter, etc)
Sounds like my husband. He'll take the advice of anyone who looks like they would know what they are talking about (store employees is one example) before he listens to what I say. Fortunately, he is slowly learning that when it comes to pets I tend to research tons before we get them.
