Thanks guys. I knew a heater wouldn't melt a plastic tank... I mean... if it got hot enough to melt the tank, pretty sure the fish would be dead... just saying... And like you, deso, I have sterilized this tank with boiling water. Shockingly, NOTHING happened. This is my shocked face. -_-
Wow, that's really sucky about the bus driver, deso! I'm glad he was fired, that's absurd.
cjconcepcion, I've heard that one before! When I was buying my 5.5 gallon, a lady asked me what I was getting it for (not an employee, just another customer). I am always happy to meet another fish geek, so I excitedly explained my plans for the tank (zen theme, male betta, possibly planted). She looked at me like I was an idiot. She said (and I quote) "Why would you waste 5 gallons on ONE fish?" I just smiled at her and said I was just a fish geek like that. Ohhhh, people.
