Good for you, taking responsibility for your sister! :) && I hope you get the money soon! Actually I think 30$ is enough to buy a 10 gal w/ filter & heater, isn't it? Don't quote me on it, but I believe it's somewhere around there. Then you could just split the 10 gal, & they would both be very happy!

But as for what your parents did as a punishment, id do that to my kids as well.
The situation thought is that I think LL's parents don't care for the fish. They provably prefer it as decoration over an actual pet.
EDIT TO PREVIOUS POST: yea, my parents think bettas are just random decoration fish, but I go against that, I'm trying everything I can for my bettas! betta power...

yea, but I don't have much space in my room (lol I typed tank instead of room at first) also, my mom is having money troubles and might not be able to give my money, like when my mom wasn't able to give me my 20$ for 4 months

Please do tell me.where you're getting a 10 gallon for that price o.o
My petsmart will sell a 5 gal for that price with no filter. I think two separate 2 gallons should be good with no filter.

That way there's no worrying about cycling.
Plus 2 gallons are smaller and more maneuverable.

Its great though that you're doing the best for your parents, but keep in mind that as long as you live under their roof and are getting they're money, its going to be hard to get things 100% your way.

I had to beg my mom for months for betta #2 and she's not happy even with me having one betta. But I live semi on my own so its different.

My advice, try to get two 2 gallons, and don't get ANY mote fish. If you can't afford any more extra supplies for Equinox you might have to sell him. You could end up spending $50 just for the tanks alone. Stress coat, conditioner, salts for injuries, etc. Might cost another $50

Alcemistnv- Not for sure about the package lol. But when I set up my 10 gal, I watched the sales. I bought a 10 gal @ the $ per G sale, a heater for 7$, and a filter for just under 15$. Plus I had some coupons because I signed up with the petco pals program, & I got it all for around 25$ Normally @ petco the 10 gals are like 13.00, but I know they have the $/G this week, & I'm sure if you look around you could find some awesome sales.
