Oh man, I am looking into that right now. That would be amazing.

Looks like it's over but someone said on a blog it happens quite a lot so I can always wait for another one.

I don't know if I could but I have a 20 gallon, if cleaned daily could it at least be a temp home until I get a 55 gallon?

No response from dad, he may not have his phone on him right now.

At this point, one of those big rubbermaids would work great until you found a tank at a good price, too.

taking a break from fish-keeping.

At this point anything would be a step up from a 1 gallon and a pickle jar T.T poor things. I think my stepmom knows about this. I asked her in a text if she knew the girls had fish and she said she helped pick out the tanks. I asked about the second goldie in the pickle jar and she said that's all they need. She use to work in a petstore...GAH.

If they fit in jars, they should be fine in a 20 gallon. It's with the adult goldfish where tank size comes into play a lot.

Perfect time to have lost my phone. I now have to talk to my dad over facebook, hope he gets on soon. I have no idea where my phone went but it may have fallen out of my bag someplace in my room or in the car T.T

I am water testing the 20 gallon right now to make sure it has no leaks.

I bet once you get them into bigger tanks, you'll see them grow like mad. Poor things growth is probably stunned...

Glad you contacted your dad about it! They're going to thrive once they get into bigger tanks & your siblings might notice & will hopefully want to look after them properly once they see how well they are doing.

IT HIT THE FAN

Dad saw my facebook message to him and from the sound of it the girls are grounded. He gave them two options, take them back to walmart or take care of them. S is freaking out because the betta was from her boyfriend so I said I would give her care info for the betta and help her pick out a better tank. M doesn't really care and said they were just stupid fish anyways so I asked my dad if he is going to take the goldies back to keep them in a temp tank for me until Christmas when I can pick them up and turn them into Texan's. I hope he lets me. I am craigslisting 55 gallon tanks like a mad woman and I think i can get one (with full setup, hood light, some decorations, and stand) for about $100 :D. Might put the fishies downstairs in the living room where a TV otherwise SHOULD be. Then we can watch them from the kitchen when we have dinner. ^-^ I can't wait, GAH, i hope he lets me take them, he knows I spoil my babies rotten. If M decides to keep them I may still try to get that tank and setup for them and ship it to MN though.
