Do you have to buy your food and conditioner by the case? I'm hoping to get 2 more next week.
But they do come in pretty large jugs at the fish store, Only takes a little bit, So a jug goes a long way..costs about $ 65.00 a jug for the conditioner.
I have a shelf full of food and a big bag full of frozen foods, I don't want to run out, For sure.
I asked Walmart today if they were gonna be getting any more of the 1 gallon tanks I liked,
So said no, Man That really annoyed me, Cause now I'm gonna have to start looking elsewhere for what I want and that means a 3 to 5 hour drive one way for me, ... grr
CHicklet, I just read your post on water changes. Ignore that. But i'm still curious about where you keep all the tanks. And i still like the gerbil. :P
Have any of you considered approaching breeders to see if they have stock they don't want? Some of them have SO MANY FISH that they'll give them away for free. They hand them out at shows and send away surprise bettas. Often, they're better quality healthwise than pet stores. I've heard terrible stories of some breeders leaving the poor guys out to die because they have nowhere to go with them. So maybe that's an option instead of walmarts/petstores?
Chicklet, I love your tanks! They are so colorful and pretty!! And i love how you snuck in a photo of a Gerbil.....
How often do you do water changes? And what does a whole view of your house look like with so many tanks?!
Gotta snicker on that one,
How often do you do water changes?
Simple put, Everyday!
I'm often up way into the night (3:00 last night before I finally got to bed, Finished changing some tanks water, fed abit, Then crashed) back up at 8 this morning.. already changed, Let me think, 11 tanks with new waters so far,..
And what does a whole view of your house look like with so many tanks?
I've had nearly everyone that steps thru the door stops in shock for a min before they catch themselves,
Trust me, I've had a lot of comments on it,
Planning on turning one whole wall into a hugh stand for fish tanks, Looks like I'm gonna have to build that myself, Oh well, Might be fun :)
i love how you snuck in a photo of a Gerbil
My daughter runs a small private gerbil rescue, thats one of the many babies she has :)

No breeders anywhere near me that I'm aware of in that capacity
