Mwahahahaha! My "evil" plan worked! I got my mom to by a 10 gallon which will be cycling soon so she can breed (with a lot of my help lol) and gave her a 2.5 gallon with all the trimmings and finally helped her pick out a GORGEUS blue vt male! Now she called my and said she thinks he needs a "buddy"!!! YESSS!!!!
