I'm Carley, I am 22 years old and a full time vet tech student new to the fish keeping world of wonders.
So it all started when I brought a critter keeper home 6 months ago trying to convince my boyfriend to let me take a few baby land snails home form a co-worker who's snail had laid eggs. With all the asking and showing I would take responsibility for them he said no. The critter keeper sat empty for 3 months and continued to "cause a problem" because I kept asking to get something to put in it. Well I solved my problem one day,while my boyfriend was at work, and went and bought a betta fish(Pico), some gravel, a heater and some plants. Needless to my boyfriend was beyond pissed and the next few things I did didn't help. A week later I brought home a 1gal because I didn't like the lighting on the 1gal critter keeper and it didn't end there. 2 weeks later I brought home a 2.5gal and another betta(Meter.) Pico went into the new tank and Meter went into the 1gal. So all was fine and dandy because my boyfriend saw that I was really happy with my new tanks and desired not to harp on me anymore, well 2 weeks ago he came home to a 10gal tank and third betta(Quark.)
