(Sorry for the double-post, just couldn't figure out how to go back into my last and add this)
I was sitting here a few hours ago, thinking of what I should do then I remembered my late-grandfather gave us a tank that had belonged to my uncle (I think, could've been my mom but whatever), complete with original box, instructions, filter, etc. Then I looked, no where on the box or instructions does it say how many gallons it is. So now I'm annoyed since most of my family is lactose intolerant we don't drink milk but then I found a gallon pitcher so we're all good now.
It's a 2.5 gallon Neon Aquarium (Looks Just Like Real Neon <-hehe, quoting the box there) and is currently sitting in the sink being tested to make sure there are no leaks in it. But I'm afraid that it will be a while still before I can get my Betta (even if I do get the money to buy one) as it looks like this 2.5 gallon aquarium will be a temporary (I hope) home for my red eared slider turtle who I decided to do research on and am shocked that he is even alive (I was away at college for 2 years and couldn't take him with me and there were times where my family forgot to feed him, just an idea of what he has been through).
Sorry, if this is random I haven't been to sleep yet and have been lurking on the forums here for about, oh, IDK, 15 hours give or take. Just thought I'd share this awesome (dare I say, retro) find. Once I get my head together I'll photograph it, post it, etc.
To fix my money situation I am going to go here in a few hours and beg, I mean, um, ASK for my old job back. Then I'm going to bed.
