Help Distract Me?

So I am looking to get a new fish tank and have found some good tanks on Craigslist that I've made offers for. The problem is, I am probably the most impatient person in the world so I keep compulsively checking to see if anyone has taken me up on the offers and it's driving me INSANE! Any tips to help me wait?!

I have fish. You probably do to. Yay!!

Plan out your tank scape designs :)

The only cure for ignorance is education, and bullying or attacking someone is no way to educate them.

Ooh that sounds delightful! I recently started a little community tank, and I bought a school of 10 neon tetras, because they are so pretty... I've only got 4 left :'( Most of the dead ones had no tails, as though my piggish mollies had eaten them, 1 was in fine condition apart from being, well, dead, and 1 disappeared and I never found her *scratches head* Apparently, I'm as good with tetras as I am with plants! rawr. The mollies are doing well, though, even coming over and nibbling my fingers when I reach in the tank, and eating from my hand. :)

I really want to add a dwarf gourami in with them. Petco is supposed to be ordering some, but I'm hesitant because they are so sickly :(

Oh ya, I was considering oto's but they need pretty good water an with my little bro dropping in the odds and ends I didn't want to risk it. I love the neon of neon tetras, sorry about your loss though. :( My female sorority does the same as your mollies, they chew my hand off!

I have a Petco about 30 seconds from my house, which is both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing because this particular store is a very good one, and it's always clean, and the animals are cared for well. It's a curse because I end up in there 5 times a week to pick up things, etc.

I used to be a hardcore PetsMart lover, but the nearest one to me is at least an hour away, and I'm too lazy to drive that far :)
