*hug back* Yeah, I felt really bad because I wasn't allowed to clean his tank or anything, so he just had to suffer.
They don't have a very wide selection at Petsmart/Petco here, so I might just go on AB for more variety. But maybe they were at the end of a shipment when I went and looked at pet stores or something, I dunno. VTs aren't really my thing. I do like halfmoons and double tails. If it weren't so inhumane I'd get a feather or rose tail maybe, but I'm not supporting that.
Jpeck : Yes, that one. Why would the converter turn it into five gallons though?
Youlovegnats : The fact is, he didn't learn, because he didn't care. Neither did my mom because she hates fish. She gets them for us and then waits for them to die. And yeah, that might be the best. Just getting one male and seeing if he'd be comfortable with a smaller space. I could get a divider and test it out.
I think the dimensions are external dimensions. If you look at the actual product, the label says it's 3 gallon, and it indeed holds 3 gallons. With moderate amount of substrate, 3 gallon water only leaves about 1.5".
Yeah, but I'm going to be going off to college in a year, so I'm going to need to get something small. Once I'm settled in an apartment or something I might start up a sorority, but I hope not to go crazy with it.
They should let you bring fish (just not mice, cats, dogs, snakes..). I had a turtle too (I don't think he was allowed though lol) But he stayed in his tank. I think the rule is anything under 10 gallons is accepted in dorms.
