Yea, after you get everything, if I were you at least, I'd just get the fish. The worst part is if you'd fail to take care of it and your parents would be all HAHAH SEE?! Which you wouldn't have to deal with because, you're taking care of it, it's in your space, even a filter, water, and light adds like nothing to your electricity and hydro bills. It basically doesn't affect them.
My worst thing with my parents is that they say I change water too much. So I always do water changes when they're not home :p
If you don't already, just start offering to do more stuff around the house, clean it, whatever, be responsible. The whole "little angel because I want something" act. Used to work great for me, not so much after my parents started seeing through it -__-
taking a break from fish-keeping.
3 lovely male betta still keep me company.
