Oooh, threadfins are really cool, I agree. I hope your sorority works out. They'll look very sophisticated in their new tank with its lovely stand.

I would probably put some kind of price on it. seems like if someone was willing to go through the effort of calling some random person up and then pay them for something, they're more likely to actually take care of it then someone who just wants a freebie. you could always decide if they seem worth not charging after meeting them

Yeah, most people don't respect/ take care of things they get for free... It's sad but true.. You could have a craigslist account only for betta rescues, publicise on fb and things, it would be an awesome thing to do! And very sweet :)

not that people always respect things they pay for, but it seems like less of a impulse type thing if you're calling someone and having to meet them somewhere to pick up a fish then just randomly grabbing one in a store

So I found out today (and for future reference) that PETSMART has a 60day return policy on tanks.

I guess this means I'm going to be trading in my 3gal for my 5 gal, splitting it so I can get Skittles from AB: http://www.aquabid.com/cgi-bin/aucti...shm&1309423907

Gah I'm so nervous, I am bidding tonight when I get home X_X

Too many people have opinions on things they know nothing about. And the more ignorant they are, the more opinions they have.
