Bought a new, fantastic 5 gallon tank.. but realized I have nowhere to put it!

I recently impulse bought a 5 gallon tank by Blue Planet, and its really lovely and came with plants, gravel and a pretty log cave-

BUT after I came home with it, I was like
"...wait a minute. I HAVE NOWHERE TO PUT THIS"
Desk space/power outlets are limited here as it is!

Alas, it is sitting in the corner of the bedroom, still in its box, until we move in a few months.

This is dangerous territory, I may just accidentally come home with a new betta for this tank... D:

I could probably squish another 10 gallon and maybe 2 5 gallons in my room. I have too much space. One of the reasons I bough a 10 gal. my room looks empty lol.

This is why man created kitchen counters. But I'm guessing you won't get away with that. :P

I have mine on the nightable. You might be able to move a smaller tank onto the nightable (from somewhere else in the room where are larger tank could fit) and put the 5 gal where it was. Um.. if you dont have a smaller tank to move around to make space for the 5 gallon, why dont you try the dresser, or maybe move a chair and find a table to put there instead to put the tank on? Or you could clear out a walk in closet (put the clothes under ur bed =P) and put the tank there. lmfao!!

Anyways... idk because I have no idea what your room looks like or how it is layed out, so I can't help you much.
This is going to sound creepy.... maybe if possible you can upload a photo of your room? Wow that sounds stalker-ish!!
