I wonder if soaking it in vinegar for awhile would remove the lime?

Go for it, but get one in person. I've heard they crack easily in shipping.

When I went into the local Petsmart and saw Kelly I knew I wanted her. But with it being a spur of the moment purchase and the holidays nearing, I need to do something cheaper, especially since I was also buy a 10 Gallon tank kit with a divider for two of my other Bettas. So I ended up getting a large Critter Keeper for her when I couldn't find a smaller rectangular kit anywhere. I already had a filter, heater, light, and gravel to use on it from Castiel's previous set up (I hated the aquarium itself though, which is why I went for something else to put her in).

It works out great for her and she seems to really enjoy it.

I just pick it up and carry it to the sink.

I'm afraid of the tank cracking. So I never move the tank...

For you water carriers not gifted with Terror's strength (or taste in cocktails), may I suggest cycling your tank to reduce the number and size of the water changes.

Yes a 2g or 3g tank can accept a stable nitrogen cycle if sufficient filter media and substrate are used.

More importantly, the ammonia is lower at all times than in even a carefully maintained and changed uncycled tank.

Cycling is not for the convenience of the keeper but for the health and safety of the fish.
