I know how you feel!! I saw the most BEAUTIFUL green mustard gas veiltail at petsmart yesterday... and like your situation, the BF said no... but I think I'm going to go back on Tuesday and get a divider for the 5 gallon, and get him anyway, I mean if I divide the 5 gallon, I don't have to get another tank or anything, haha.
One hand reaches out and pulls a lost soul from harm. While a thousand more go unspoken for, they say what good have you done? By saving just this one... It's like whispering a prayer in the fury of a storm. And I hear them saying... You'll never change things...
