A lady in my fish club is downsizing and giving a bunch of stuff away for free. I'll be getting some driftwood and possibly a 6 gallon from her at the next meeting.
BUT the best part of all! I'm getting a 20 gallon tall with a wood stand... FREE!!!!! All I have to do is pick it up.. and she lives really close to my parents so thats not a big deal at all
The tank comes with a glass top and the stand.. but I can easily get a filter, heater and light for cheap. I won't be using the tank for a while (unless my mom wants to take a stab at fish keeping) because I'm not allowed anything bigger than a 10 gallon in my dorm
But when I get a place off campus I'll be able to start up a guppy/tetra tank or even a sorority of female bettas. I would like to have two or three fancy goldfish but I want to wait till I have at least a 30 gallon tank before trying goldfish.
My mind is running with all the things I can do with this tank... I really wish I could set it up instead of storing it for the future.. but at least I have it!
