That is horrible!! My parents would have never heard the end of it from me. Their life would have been a living hell!

I would say just showing how responsible you are should be enough to convince any parent that you could get an additional one. I am 30 so it has been a while since I had to deal with it but I am sure my parents would have let me get as many as I wanted if I was really taking care of them.

19 males all but 1 in 5 gal tanks
1 giant in a 16 bowfront
52 female sorority, 15 raspboras, 6 corydora sterbia and BN pleco in a 72 gallon

Other tanks - 135 gallon african cichlids, 48 breeder SA cichlid, 30 gallon hex goldfish, 30 gallon community fish and shrimp tank, 12 gallon hex growout

2 Chihuahuas, 2 1/2 lab 1/2 weim dogs and 2 cats
1 Husband and 1 3 year old princess
