Buddha is doing really well. His fin is healing rather well and I'm glad. He's back to his regular self and I've been continuing with the hoop training. The 5.5 gallon is set to be here anywhere from tomorrow to next Tuesday. I'm REALLY wondering now if I should just put Pudge in there and leave Buddha in his bowl, or divide it.
I'm afraid of using a filter. It's easy to put it and fix, yes, but I'm scared. I once had a 10 gallon tank when I was younger (we had it for a few years, from when I was 6-8), and we had sharks, angel fish, goldfish, neons, and some other weird fish (i dont recall what they were). Well, we had a filter, and apparently it was too strong once the fish got a bit older. They would get stuck to the filter and die there. And the worst part was that the tank was right across from my bed, so I would see dead fish when I woke up. For a good few months, the fish would die, one by one. Then, the rest of the tank caught ick and died. That's when my parents and I gave up on fishkeeping, because we were so scared.
And now, I'm kinda worried about something happening to Buddha or Pudge. But it's a large tank. I don't want to clean it without the use of a filter. I don't want my mom getting mad at me for cleaning the tank so often. Also, when I'm in college, I don't want to clean it so often because the bathroom is so far away. I'm just so scared...and I'm going to need a LOT of help to walk me through :(
I just wish I could just get Pudge already...

I seem to have a problem with collecting things with scales and fins. Oops
