i was happy with my 8 for a while. it's hard work, caring for 8 small tanks. add onto that, i was dealing with Caroline and Chappy, who were ill, now it seems like Cup's in his final days, and Caroline's STILL ill. then, i got Theo, the blind betta. shoot, Zidane's not even in a proper tank(but he seems to enjoy his sterilite bin, so as long as he's happy, i'm fine with a ghetto-looking tank). then, i started to want another. i'd LOVE to have the golden yellow DT female Chard's selling on aquabid, but if i can't get her, i'll be happy with a pet store female(i'm saving them from a painful death by the hands of an inexperienced breeder who, according to the guy in charge of the fish, buys up almost every female, every week. x-X).
my dream is to get a pair of divided 20 gallons, but if i can't do that, i'd be fine with a few divided 10's, or even just a book shelf to house all my tanks on. 8/9 tanks is alot to care for, but it's something i enjoy doing, and i love seeing how happy they are after a good water change. :d
