I need to post new pics of alfreds critter keeper. I took out the gravel and added sand, and I am in the process of adding real plants! Should be done in a few days once I see what looks right :)

LxWxH=in3 (Length times width times height equals cubic inches)
and then
in3 / 231=US Gal. (cubic inches divided by 231 equals your amount in US gallons). <-- Because there are 231 cubic inches in a US gallon.

But hey, you're on a computer, you can always go over to a handy dandy conversion calculator:
Cubic Inches to Gallons conversion calculator
That one right there works quite nicely, and type in your number of cubic inches and wha-lah, it will tell you approximately how many gallons you get so you don't have to do that last bit on your own.
Thanks, that helped a LOT.

Here's Tian-Tian's new 2.5 gal. tank. :) Very simple, non-cluttered and... Zen-like? Lol. Submersible heater's in the back, no filter. The tall grass he's on is his FAVORITE.
I know the picture quality is awful; webcameras fail at picture-taking.
Hopefully I'll be able to invest in a good camera soon!

All these tanks are so beautiful!! I envy the 10 gallons. I have a 10 gallon in my basement with a light but I don't have anywhere to put it. My guys are in the only safe spot where the cats can't jump up and after closer inspection i realized it wouldn't hold the weight of a 10 gal. And, of course, I'd feel bad putting 1 guy into a 10 gal and leaving the other in a 3 gal, so I'd have to have 2 10 gallons....I'm doing th ebest I can to cozy up the 3 gals until i have more space to give them.

Fishyinpa: i love the color of those glass stones! they are a beautiful blue! :) they complement Elvis nicely.

you got him a new tank! it looks nice. that's that grass i have, yup. :) they really love it, don't they? i like the 3 rocks in the back. Maybe he will garden. I bet a little terra cotta flower pot would look super cute in there (and it's reallllly inexpensive...)

Haha, he ADORES that grass. I've tried moving it around his other tank and it's the first plant he checks out. Silly fish.

That's a good idea! Where can you find those, generally? Hobby Lobby or some craft store? And what materials would be fish-safe in a tank? Ceramic, I would guess....

Rockstar, that's a cute tank!
