I was an impulse buyer who.... had never owned a fish before XD Now I have two and they seem to be enjoying their 3gal tanks and my compulsive nature to clean their water anytime I have time ^^;;

My GF now has... 7 [since her filter just ate one of her girls it was awful] and while she complains loudly she still shells out the money they need for nice homes.

Awesome thread!

I'd like to add that checking places like dollar stores can lead to some great finds for tank decor! I not only found tons of face silk plants (especially ivy.. fake plants can get pretty pricey. /: ) but also a large pack of ping pong balls to amuse my fish and many things that can be used as a fish hideaway... all for a dollar a piece! I'm in the process of helping a friend at work set up a betta tank, and the dollar store near me also carries those neat little dragon's tear stones in 1lb bags for $1 each.

You'd be amazed at what you can find out there.

Just remember to be careful with those hydro mini heaters. They just raise the temp and do not turn of at a certin point. This can cause the temperature to fluctuate to much. A good heater choice is a smal 15 watt heater that should cost you no more than $15.
