I have a 20 gallon I want as a glowfish tank but where to put it in my tiny room? At most I can only fit slim 10 gallons on my wall of shelves. The 20 gallon I could put on the shelf over my bed but if it fell off....20 gallons of water and glass...I might not survive nor would my fish eeek. "Here lies Chelsea, killed by her fish tank in her sleep." "Here lies Flipper, Floppsy, Lupin, Lunar, and Jolly...killed by Chelsea's face." >.<
Awww Gizmo I'm so sorry for your loss! She was a gorgeous frog. The 10 gals sound like a lovely idea -- I hope you're able to find room for them!
It seems that soon I'm going to have a tank free, myself I'm looking to the future and trying to decide what I'm going to do with it (it helps me to prepare what I want to do in the event of something going wrong like it is)... I may get an ADF, depends on what our local aquatics store says, or I may set up a red cherry shrimp colony... The tank is just under 4 gallons... Hum.
All of my larger tanks are full, but if they ever open, I'm definitely going to make them frog tanks. I've just fell in love with the creatures after getting Skinny and Tubby (still no idea what gender Skinny is - not mature yet, I think)
Tank size is in the eye of the beholder, and depends on who lives inside of it! Compared to my 3, 5, and 10g - my 20 long seems HUGE! I have a 20 long, a 29 tall, and a 55 - I *used* to consider ALL of them big tanks, but somehow they seem so small to me now *giggle* I can't WAIT for the day when I finally get my 125. . . wonder how long it'll take THAT one to seem 'small' - prolly a month or three. . . *giggle* Of course, now that I have ALL of them running, I have no room for anything else!
Speaking of tanks over beds... did you see the episode of "Tanked" where they made a 'pirate' bed for a very sick little boy? It was AMAZING, but all that I could think of is that I would NEVER let my kid (or myself, for that matter) sleep under a tank like that - especially not considering how many lawsuits those people have against them! Too bad they don't know ANYTHING about fish, they make some neat (if worthless, practically) tanks.
Gizzy, I still think you should have turned that corner tank into an ADF habitat. . . imagine? 50 little frogs. . . *swoons* Can't wait to see what you come up with for the frogs in the 10 or 20 gallon! Any luck finding the new angel?
