No, I'm from Western suburbs(two of them, as my parents are seperated). I'm not going to U of I, but I know a lot of people who are and may be visiting them soon. I will probably transfer to U of I in two years though!

i have the 3 gallon eclipse and i like it a lot- its really nice looking and the filter current isn't too strong. betta don't like a strong current.
Thanks for the advice, I was thinking about getting one of the small eclipse tanks, and now I'm pretty sure that's what I'll go for. I can run the tank for that long if it is better for the fish.
I'm not sure when I can actually afford to get the tank and such, I guess it will depend on how expensive the total of all the equipment and food will cost. If it is too much I may have to wait until Christmas.
