 non  hobbyist  friends  are  sometimes  funny,  mostly  irritating  or   plain  dumb!
 
 I  have  seen  mostly  no  one  can  keep  their  hands  off  the  magnetic  algae  cleaner,  they  use  it  so  hard  that  the  cleaner  inside  the  tank  float  away  towards  the  overflow!   Thumb Down  
 
 There  are  endless  thing  i  have  heard  in  my  7yrs  of  reef  keeping,  below  are  some  that  came  to  mind!  
 
 funny  Quotes....
 
 Looking  at  my  corals  in  the  reef  tank  "All  these  colorful  things  look  so  real"   Surprised      i  said,  yeah...these  Chinese  guys  make  great  things!
 
 Looking  at  my  reef  tank  "beautiful  marine  tank,  is  this  a  salt  water  tank?"   Shocked  no,it  just  water  from  the  bore  well!
 
 Looking  at  an  anemone's  moving  tentacles  with  the  power-head  flow  "oh  this  thing  is  alive,  amazing  yaar!!!"     Sad   ,ya,  it  comes  out  at  nite!
 
 Looking  at  my  reef  tank  "  can  i  keep  a  nemo  (clownfish),  will  they  fight  with  my  goldfish!"   Thumb Down   ya  sure,  plastic  one  don't  fight!
 
 Looking  at  my  reef  tank  "why  have  you  kept  so  many  rocks?"  well,  i  need  stairs  for  my  hermits  to  climb  up  and  breath!
 
 Looking  at  chiller  "hey,  why  have  put  such  a  big  filter?"   arre,  these  corals  sh*t  a  lot  yaar!
 
 Looking  at  a  hermit  crab  "oh,  where  did  you  get  this  snail  with  feet?"  ..........i  got  it  at  the  mall  next  to  your  house,  earlier  they  also  had  some  with  hands!!!  
 
 Looking  at  reef  tank  "how  do  you  remove  all  this  when  you  have  to  wash  your  tank  every  week?"  well,  i  just  take  the  tank  to  the  bathroom  and  pour  all  the  water  out!
 
 Looking  at  skimmer  "this  thing  looks  like  a  big  bong  or  hookah!".....wanna  smoke  it?
 
 Looking  at  reef  tank  lighting  "  why  you  use  white  and  blue  tubes,  just  use  white  tubes,  to  make  it  look  blue...just  add  some  blue  liquid  (Methylene  Blue)!   Sad   Oh,  that  a  great  one,  i  should  have  consulted  you  before  i  bought  my  lights  yaar!
   
 Looking  at  my  fire  shrimp  "have  you  tried  eating  this?"   .....hmmm,  no....i  don't  like  red  food!
 
 Looking  at  my  huge  silver  arowana  "  this  guy  is  not  that  fleshy"  another  guy  "this  fish  should  be  around  3kg,  let  it  grow  more!!!   Crying or Very sad  
 
 Looking  at  my  huge  tank  with  large  arowana  and  big  gar  "you  should  add  a  group  of  angels,  it  will  fill  your  tank!"...ya  rite,  pls  sponsor  some,  they  love  angels!   Very Happy

 Here  are  some  of  the  best  from  my  friends.
 
 1.  Can  a  Betta  fight  a  gold  fish  ?  if  not  why  are  they  called  a  fighters  ?  Wall Bang  
 2.  Are  these  fish  painted  after  they  are  grown  ?
 3.  WOW  Tiger  shrimps  !!  I  had  them  once  at  barbeque  nation,  they  where  very  tasty  but  these  one  you  have  are  too  small  to  cook.
 4.  You  have  some  many  variety  of  plants  in  you  tank  but  non  of  them  are  flowering.
 5.  Are  you  in  to  fish  research  ?  this  room  looks  like  a  laboratory.  
 
 My  friends  have  named  me  fisher-man,  they  even  gifted  me  a  artificial  aquarium  with  flashy  lights  and  plastic  fish  inside  it  as  a  wedding  gift.
 
 Regards,
 Ram.

 Fish  doctor,  Fisherman,  Fish  uncle  are  the  different  titles  bestowed  upon  me  at  one  point  in  time  or  the  other.
 
 I  have  kept  an  old  helmet  near  the  fishtank.  Anyone  who  has  a  slight  propensity  to  tap  the  glass  is  told  that  it  is  like  making  him/her  wear  the  helmet  and  pounded  on  it  with  a  hammer.  The  possibility  of  the  annoying  behaviour  dramatically  reduces.
 
 Apparently,  I  bubble  oxygen  through  the  tank  to  keep  the  fish  alive.  (I  didn't  know  I  did  that!)
 
 "Guppies  are  young  goldfish  that  will  grow  up  to  become  large,  round  and  orange."  Super!
 
 "Where  are  the  fighter  fish?"  They  have  gone  out  for  a  morning  walk.
 
 "I  washed  my  aquarium  properly  and  then  all  the  fish  died"  aah,  is  that  so?
 
 "Can  I  put  plants  from  my  pots  in  my  aquarium?"  You  can  do  anything  you  want.  Every  choice  has  a  consequence.
 
 Rgds,
 NS

i  once  saw  a  fellow  a  rich  looking  fellow  looking  at  all  the  fish  tanks  in  an  LFS,  later  he  fixes  his  gaze  on  an  arowana,  asks  the  shopkeepr  for  the  price,  and  before  the  shopkeeper  finishes  quoting  the  price...  this  fellow  pounces  back  on  him  saying  that  he  can  feed  his  family  FISH  for  the  whole  day  at  that  price  !!                

 
 Wait  till  he  hears  the  price  of  show  Koi  and  other  color  variants  of  Aros  Very Happy
