I have 8 cats because I find it hard to give up fosters! Remington, the fish in my avatar, was a rescue I thought I could give up. Nope
If I ever did start a rescue I would do it on the cheap by shopping at thrift stores looking for large-ish glass containers (I'm not fond of plastic) and saving my money for the actual fish, meds and HEATERS. I also would not do it without an ample supply of indian almond leaves. I would not filter the tanks which would mean taking time to do lots of water changes.
