Cool Gandalf got an UPGRADE!

Okay...okay... so it was only a half gallon upgrade... but it's an upgrade none-the-less!

I cannot express in words my utter hatred for the Mini-Bow 2.5 tank. Gandalf has lived in it since we got him and my list of complaints about it are endless.

That being said... I was at Petsmart today to pick up some Prime when I started browsing tanks. (I did also see an AMAZING white and red dragon half-moon - but I restrained myself from purchasing him ) Anyway... so I am looking at tanks and I see the tank that we currently house Chronos in... and it's on sale! With a call to my boyfriend, I get the go-ahead to purchase the 3 gallon for Gandalf. Now my beautiful boys live in twin tanks.

I moved Chronos to the left because his heater cord is shorter and the power strip is on that side. On the right is Gandalf's new tank. (They are not cloudy....at all... I am not sure why they look slightly cloudy in the picture. They are crystal clear in person:


Here is a view of just Gandalf's new tank:

Aww! I bet he is happy!!

In chrono's tank- what is the plant between the pineapple and the terra-cotta pot? It is live, right? I'm going to remodel my tank with a natural theme and I'm looking at plants I like, but I'm not familiar with many aquatic plants.

Very nice!

I like my 2.5 mini-bow. If you want to sell yours shoot me a PM, I need two more (long story!)

While I like my mini bow (the full hood with the sunken rim makes it a good one for my cat infested household!) I LOVE that tank you got a second of. That's what my office pal Chicory has for his home. No cats that I am aware of in the office. And while it isn't really that much bigger, the design *does* make it look roomier.

I was actually planning on keeping it and using it for other purposes. Sorry.

I do cover the feeding hole in the lid at night and when we go out so they aren't tempted to jump out. It's sleek and modern and I can see them from all angles. My one complaint would be that sometimes the filter rattles, but if I smack it (lightly) it stops. Chronos has seemed to enjoy his for awhile, so I figured I'd treat Gandalf as well.
