Oh man, moving all those tanks would suck! But by the time you can get it you'll be able to do heaps more awesome stuff with it with all the knowledge you'll acquire in the meantime I guess? There's gotta be a positive somewhere, hehe.
I honestly don't understand how we managed to get enough money together to finance this new setup we've got. I think the fact that the boyfing has been working weekends, which pay more, contributes to it, but wow we've spent a lot. It's brought me a whole lot more joy than a few nights of clubbing would have, which is the equivalent cost, I guess, heh. To be honest, I've spent way more than I had to on fish stuff, because I've been learning as I go and upgrading when able, but it's been a joy doing it so I don't regret spending the money on "lesser" setups while I was learning up until this point. Obviously I'm still learning, but I've gone as big with tank sizes as I can, so the upgrades must stop, haha.
I'm also now able to give the old tanks to friends interested in using them. One friend loves fish but doesn't have the finances, so I'll be giving her one of the 4 gallon tanks, some gravel and possibly one of the tiny sponge filters I deemed too small for my purposes after they arrived (if she only keeps a betta it'll be fine, but I wanted shrimp too, hah, so needed more surface area for the bacteria to grow on) and another tank will be going to the brother of another friend. He's a problem kid and tends to get himself into a lot of trouble when his time isn't occupied, but he's got really into plants lately and I offered to teach him what little I know about aquascaping so he has another outlet for all his energy, and give him trimmings when my plants grow. ^.^
So I guess all the money spent isn't really going to waste. I figure, if I'm going to blow my money, may as well do something productive with it instead of drinking it all like so many others my age, haha.
