My rant for today: Not having enough funds / space for other fish projects.
There is the most adorable lionhead goldfish at work, a pretty light gold with an adorable little mustache
I have been eyeballing him for weeks & he is the first one i check on when i start my shift just to make sure he is still there.
I have grown attached to his squishy looking face & while i would love to adopt him i don't have the money or space to fit another tank into my life.
My heart says save him but my brain says no!
Currently i have a 5.5 fully planted with my male betta & harlequin rasboras (plus my little lone guppy fry that came free with my last purchase of cherry shrimp)
+2 2.5 gallons with my females each.
I'm also setting up another fully planted 5 gallon for one of the females (the other i will be giving away) so in the end i will only have 2 tanks up and running.
I have been researching the care needed for the goldfish but i simply don't have the money or space to give him a 20-30 gallon
The only spare tank i have to use is my old fluval EBI which is about 8 gallons & i know that's not nearly big enough..
I hate taking on a project & seeing another fish soul that needs saving or that you become attached to.
I just don't know if i should scap my new build, give my 2 females away and set up a temporary 10 gallon or just continue with that i'm doing.. /sigh, woes of working with animals...
