here is PLAN E Dev,
i stay near your place,
if all the plans backfire give me a call
if your wife throws you out of the house with your aqua stuff,
dont worry i have a home,
for the aqua stuff,
you can back to your wife without the aquastuff ,she will be more than happy to welcome you back minus the aqua stuff,
you can buy her something she has been eyeing but was not able to buy,
once you give her something she has been drooling for she will instantly forget all her anger

Dont fill in the tanks with substate etc . Just keep it empty, Add some Pottaassium permanget with the water .... when he some comes , just say that there was a outbreak of disease in the other tanks and i had to try and save the fishes , hence got a hospital ( tank ) ,
Wife : But where are the fishes , I cant see any of them
You - They just died last night ... After that you just go a lie on the bed ... dont interact much
Next day : Wife : its aweful , that tank looks pretty bad with that solution ... why dont you redo
Take the stuff that you already bought and bring it back in the evening ... with a sigh

Good to see so many people coming up with their experiences of handling 'the wife' to guide me.
Special thanks of gratitude to Trevor for missing me. I am doing good by God's grace and things seem OK.
Could not participate on IAH as I was spending a 15 day holiday in Calcutta after a looooooong time. It was surely fun to be in the city of joy, specially so in the winters, one of the best time to visit Kolloloni Tilottoma as the city is fondly called by the bengalis. It was fun to attend my cousin sister's marriage and meet all the old and long forgotten relatives who was happy to notice that I have grown so much (in side ways ) in these few years. I was happy to relive my child hood memories once more with all of them. It was also fun to hang around with friends over the pubs that we could not afford during our early career days. Over all it was nice.
Now back to the agenda, I am living to tell the story that my plan worked as smooth as a red hot knife on pile of butter. My wife was feeling so miserable staying all alone for eight days before I came back that she was damn happy to have some one to boss around and forgot the entire tank incident in exchange.
I am keeping my fingers crossed...

Simply show this thread to your better half and ask "Do you want me to play all these tricks with you just to get couple of more tanks and fishes?? I really don't want to fool you and want to be honest with you. You know Aquariums are my weakness and I can't stay without them."
Believe me.... this one is the dirtiest trick you ever can play and success factor is 99%. Emotional Warheads are far most strongest than any weapons specially when your opponent is your wife.
Warning: Before showing her this thread, let me know, so I can remove my comment beforehand. Otherwise It will backfire badly.

Encourage her to splurge just before you want to go get something new.
Take her shopping to her favourite store and make sure she spend just a little bit more than your preplanned budget.
The mixture of happiness + guilt ensures you freedom to fishy purchase
