This is what I did for one of mine he is in a 2 gallon jar I got from wal-mart for 9 dollars in the kitchen section.

Look on Kijiji or Craigslist for cheap tanks as well... sometimes you'll find free aquariums. I'm two years older than you are (not much of a difference) and I can afford tanks- They're not that expensive if you know where to look.

And yeah, don't believe the employees at pet stores. They don't know what the heck they're talking about...

Be careful if you decide to use the gallon pickle jar thing. It's really hard to get vinegar to come out.

If you don't separate them one or both will end up dead. many of the people in chain pet stores know as much about fishkeeping as a 3 year old knows about the mechanisms of a rocket.

You won't have to worry about separating them for much longer as one will soon kill the other and the one that did not die may be injured and stressed and die too.

By your post if you are in 6th grade and your fish die-I don't think you are ready to be a responsible fish owner and maybe need to try again when you are older

or

you are a

Troll.........
