So... I have a friend whose visiting from out of town and we walked into my local wal-mart. First of all, they seem to think putting a pleco in every tank replaces a filter.
Second of all, nearly all of the bettas were dead...
I'm contemplating rescuing the living ones since there's MAYBE 5 that might be still alive but I don't have suitable living arrangements for them and I've blown serious dough setting up my new aquarium with Jabu-Jabu over the past month or so. I don't really have a ton of cash to throw around. :/
Anyone know any places I might check to find cheap-o 2-5 gal aquariums? I've posted on craigslist and I'm sifting through freecycle. Any where else I can look?
