Talking New tank!

So, I posted on the rant thread a few days ago that I came home to find out that my dad had given away one of my tanks without letting me that my masked boy was temporarly 'homeless'.

My dad said he'd buy me a new tank to make up for it, so we went to Petsmart today thinking that I'd get a new 2.5 gallon tank for him since it's the cheapest.

But when we got there, the 2.5 mini-bows were almost $50, which I had expected...then I saw that there was a 5 gal kit for about the same price, so I went and picked that up happily, thinking I had solved my problem for splitting the tank when I return to Ottawa...

BUT THEN, as we came out of the aisle, we saw that there was a Tetra 10 gallon kit for $30! Came with hood, lights, and a filter!

So obviously I bought that! 4 times the room of a 2.5 gallon at almost half the price!

Plus, now all three of my boys will all have 5 gallons to themselves! AND I've finally gotten a 10 gallon tank that comes with a hood! Lol. So when I return to Ottawa I'm going to be selling that other one that I've taken down on Craigslist, or something.

Just so excited at my new tank!
