Awesome tank

So I finally decided to buy the Petco bookshelf aquarium. What an awesome tank! Although the cover is a bid cumbersome and oddly set up, the size and shape totally make up for it! I am sersiously considering going back and buying the last one they had (there were only 2 and apparently they are hard to find) and making it a sorority tank for 4 girls (of course, if the hubby lets me :)

Here is a pic of someone else's (will post a pic when I get home of my own):

That's great!! I've always like that tank!!!

As for the sorority tank, it is too small to safely house girls together. ): You'd need at least a 10g. Sorry to be the barer of bad news.

That's a really neat tank. I agree with Doggyhog, you need at least 10G's for a sorority.

ah, ok. I thought that might be the case. Well, I could still buy it and get a few more boys :)

I've been looking at that tank at Petco for weeks now. If you get it, let us know how it works out!

I did get it... I really like the way it looks, but to be honest, the cover is HORRIBLE. Read the review I linked up above... it's very accurate, except that now nothing comes with the tank except the light and filter (no substrate, background or plants). I am hoping that the way it looks will balance out the horrible cover...
