I recently got an INCREDIBLE deal (paid $10) on a "non-functioning" 12 gallon Eclipse... well, I cleaned it and it works, so now I need to figure out what to do with it. My hubby REALLY does NOT want lots of tanks in the house. I currently have a 20 gallon divided 4 ways, a 6.6 gallon Petco "bookshelf" tank divided two ways, and a 2.5 gallon (not divided). I need to come up with a good plan before I can "sell" it to my hubby.
My options are either to divide it two ways and put 2 more guys in it.
Or make it a sorority tank with 5 or 6 girls.
I cannot put any snails, shrimp or ADFs in there because they are illegal here in Maine (GRRRRRR!). I also want to stay away from any not-too-hardy fish because I'd rather not have the extra up keep for them in with the bettas.
I'm thinking of moving my bookshelf tank down a shelf and putting the 12 gallon on top of that stand so at least I won't have another tank stand.
Anyone have any good ideas/thoughts on either option? Or any ideas on how to "Sell" it to my hubby?
Current large tanks:
Bookshelf aquarium, might move it down on the shelf and put the 12 where this one currently is?
Can't really move this one now:
