So I had to share this with the only people who would understand my excitement, cause my other friends think I'm just plain weird being all giddy over this lol.
So for the past few weeks I've noticed that Valentine is getting rather big for his two gallon. It's not like he dwarfs it, but its certainly not as roomy a space like for my Veteran. So I had been planning for two weeks on buying him a five gallon...then just a few days ago when my mom went to petsmart she said there was a fifteen gallon for only twenty dollars more and had the same things as the five gallon, so we decided on getting that one instead soon. Then today we went grocery shopping in Scottsdale (very fancy part of Arizona near Phoenix) and went to the petsmart there, and my mom saw this twenty gallon on sale for seventy four bucks AND it included a heater, where as the fifteen gallon was seventy one and had no heater. So needless to say, my mom said we should totally buy the twenty gallon and can split it three ways for my first three fish :D And about all afternoon I have not shut up about it rofl.
I may not split it three ways though, for its more tall then long and if I split it three ways there really wouldn't be much room at the bottom for decorations, so I'm thinking just splitting it in half for Valentine and Laborday. It's a Marineland twenty gallon with a Marineland Stealth heater. I just have to wait til the end of the month when I get my next paycheck to start buying decorations. I'm going to cycle it using the live plant method, Ive always wanted live plants :D And Monday I'm going to order heaters for my two other fish. Only thing that sucks is I saw a BEAUTIFUL orange crowntail male and then a GORGEOUS all blue half moon male at the petsore, I wanted them so bad but I knew buying them just wasn't pratical since I need to spend enough money on the fish I have already, but it was tough to leave them.
BUUUTT, I have a twenty gallon!!! And I'm so excited. I'm such a fish freak rofl. I'll put pictures up once I get it set up hopefully in a week or two. Valentine's theme is going to be pirates, and Laborday's theme will be roman.
