and i'm scared the MTS is gonna hit me. It's already affected me psychologically already - i've gone crazy constantly over the thought of a new tank. we'll see how far this hobby will venture, :)
I think my one gallon I replaced is going to turn into my ghost shrimp tank the next weekend :P

I have a good tank, pump, filter, light,timer, plants, gravel, All I need is water and a coldwater animal that will live in a one gallon tank. Probably a shrimp.

The most dangerous thing.... I have a perfectly functioning 12 gallon tank in storage... but I promised my mom I wouldn't because it was too much work....

Doubleatheman, I'm sorry, but there is absolutely no possible way you will not touch that 12 gallon. Unless I take it, haha! We should make a bet how long it'll take for you to use it.

Dramaqueen - Not there is not, sadly hahah

got alot of plants he can hide behind? more plants will also block some of the water flow..

Also other folks with the eclipse 3 don't complain of that, but I don't have it so I don't know.

The 12 gallon tank... meh, I know I'll find some use for it! No betting allowed :P

My petsmart has silk plants....

Although my petsmart is Huge!

The petco closet to us is a mini petco, and its selection is small. the petco down the road is huge and has everything!

Although my closet petco is remodeling, and it appears they are making the fish department larger :)

i have like, 6 petco silk plants.
if you're gonna get them, make SURE you cover the base with a lot of gravel, because that can scratch a betta. One of mine lost a scale because of it, and another damaged tail. It's only the leaves that are a-okay.

Doubleatheman, does that work? I was kinda scared the cut-off ends would still be sharp (or even sharper) for them. Tell me how that goes for you, and I'll try it!
