Sometimes, you just have to accept what your parents say. Don't expect instant gratification for being good. Try your best to be understanding, sometimes parents will get overwhelmed by pets, even though they aren't the ones taking care of them XD

If possible, in a few months, slowly start collecting the things you need for a tank. Maybe just one thing here and there, then one day, just look around for a good spot, and set the empty tank there. Chances are, if your parent's notice, unless they say something, they're already halfway to accepting the fact you're getting another fish. :)

If they do say something, just mention the fact that you have everything for a complete tank. If they ask you to move it, find another spot, and set it up there. Eventually, they're bound to accept the fact you've gotten another tank ready for another fish.

I'm sorry you couldn't get your dream fish when you saw him, but another one will pop up in your path again, when your parent's are willing to say yes to the fish. :)

Haha, I remember how bad this use to frustrate me. I would always dream about getting my own car and going to the petstore and getting whatever I wanted. Now that I can drive I would rather save my money for clothes.

Show your parents that you are responsible. Make sure your other pets are well taken care of, that your schoolwork is done (I know it's summer right now:) lol and make sure you're getting any obligations you have around the house done.

God, we've all been there. Grit your teeth and do what you're supposed to do. Parents have a lot of reasons for doing things that may not make any sense to you. If I had any idea being an adult was not as fun as being a teen, I would've stayed your age. I mean, I can do what I want but that doesn't mean I can do what I want. And if that makes no sense then... there ya go! :D

You'll get another one! Hang in there!
