Since I can never make a choice for myself...
Price Range... As Cheap as possible. Saw a PERFECT tank for about 60$ and my parents just ... laughed.
Any Tank Brands in the 5Gal range that have some things thrown into it? Like a heater, Temp Gauge...
Dad. "Why bother, these fish DIE in a week anyway."
Mom. "It's... just a fish. Everyone says they like small puddles."
I have such wonderful parents who really know how to help out when you develop a new interest or hobby to help relieve stress... and they bother wonder why I need so much medication. They prefer to sweep things under the rug then DO anything. A fish is relaxing to me, but my parents don't want to have to help me set things up because it takes up THEIR precious time XP. Even if that time is ONE Day to get supplies and then I'll do the rest. Oh SUCH an INCONVENIENCE this fish is! Just one day, then I'll do all the weekly cleanings and mom just has to drop a few food things in daily... such a chore for 2 weeks till I come home for Winter Break.
Sorry... just they sometimes get on my nerves and I like ranting...
