5 gallons - when enough is enough
On the subject of 5 gallon tanks,
I traded 10 Jumbo mollies, 10 Platies, 5 Guppies with a women tonight.
I have chatted with her thru E-mail several times and was to her place once,
When I was there earlier this summer she had two tanks, 1 - 5 gallon and 1 - 10 gallon,
She told me she had recently gotten a much bigger tank, 60 gallon to be exact.
and was looking for something to put in it,
So when she offered a 10 gallon in exchange for some fish I thought Ok,
Anyways earlier this evening I took the fish up and we did the swop,
We then sit down to chat abit,
I was abit surprised to hear that she had taken all the fish that had been in the 5 & 10 gallon and put them all together in the 5 gallon, For a min I really thought I had misunderstood her, But nope she has over 50 fish in that small tank, Guppies, tetras and other fish,
Then she really thru me for a loop,
She said they was moving next month so she packed the big tank up and wasn't going to use it until they got in their new place, I swallowed hard, bit my tongue then asked what I knew I didn't want to hear,
"WHERE DO You intend on putting all these fish I just traded with you"?
Why in the 5 gallon tank with everything else, "was her response"
Totally Amazing, I was almost speechless,
Always in NEED & looking for more Tanks!
