I think your right bettaQI. Besides I have a 5 gallon tank that I have my biggest betta in, I paid for the gravel, filter, food, light, thermometer, decorations, and the betta. My mom paid for the tank because at the time I had a turtle. So, yeah, using my own money is probably the best option.

I think it's very positive that you are taking your responsibility seriously early on.

You will have a huge advantage in life compared to people who have not learned to handle their finances and understand the long term effects of their choices.

Who takes care of all the animals while you are away?

We have a person that goes to my church. She stays at our house the entire time while we are gone. She takes care of the cat, dog, and both betta's.

If she says NO to the tank, ask if you can use a storage bin. Most 2.5 gallons are pricy for their small size. if its the price she has an issue with, see if she will buy you a $5 storage bin or see if you can do some chores in exchange for it. I use 2. One is about 20 gallons and houses my baby trapdoor snail army and one CT and a smaller one that has one VT. I like them better then tanks actually because most are longer and not so tall. Heaters won't melt them either.

To avoid bans on bigger fish tanks I always keep fish in my room, try to keep journeys to the pet store at a minimum and always pay for my own stuff. Hopefully you can get that upgrade!

Well, I just showed my mom I was responisible. I already had 3 dogs so we just made a deal; If I took COMPLETE care if my dogs and get an A+, I'd get any sized tank. However if I fail, I'd have to deal with a 1 gallon. It was hard, and even though I did what she said, my lil betta died before I can get him a new tank :(
