I was thinking the same thing and I actually just talked to my mom (my 10 gallon is in attic (spelling?)) and I first mentioned that I wanted to grow MORE plants in my tank so I wanted the 10 but she said it could be too much of a hassle and going back home can be difficult so no. And then I told her that I wanted to take the females home from petland but I mentioned that if I did use the 10 I would need about 3-4 females and I know she'd kill me if I had that many (although if they were all in one tank...she maybe more ok with that but I would wait until the summer anyway before using my 10 gallon or at least when I go home for breaks). So I asked them to hold two for me but I'll go ahead there today or tomorrow and say I'll just take one home (I have two 2.5 gallon tanks, one currently in use until his 10 gallon is cycled in his owners room). My mom is OCD so having more than one tank will really upset her and also she doesn't think I should be spending all my time taking care of fish when I should be doing school. So I can take one girl in to at least give her a home. Should I just do that?
OH and here's my 5 gallon and about cycling, any advice? http://www.bettafish.com/showthread....46#post1391646
