Personal note - Run, walk, hitchhike. Too good of a deal to pass up.

Reality check - Is it that your parents to want to drive for 45 minutes or is it that they don't share your love of aquaria?

Too bad you don't have a birthday or something coming up. You could say that the ride there would be one of your presents.

Jeez Blucat, I can't believe they won't take you! Do you have any friends that can drive that your parents would let you ride with? Or as JChillin says, take a cab! LOL you've inspired me to check my classifieds today!

Tell your parents you're going to take the taxi ON YOUR OWN, to meet up with a stranger ON YOUR OWN, to pick up a supposedly free tank that weighs as much as you do ON YOUR OWN... They'll either ground you or realize that you're serious about this. Seriously though, have you tried explaining that you feel passionately about this? I was lucky growing up in the sense my parents were reasonable, especially when they thought an activity might have some form of educational value. Of course, this doesn't work if you have too many things you feel passionaltely about and give up halfway.

2 x Ghost Shrimp - $0.60
Look on wife's face when she found out how much I've spent on fish related gear this month - PRICELESS
