You wouldn't be the only one on this board without a tank.

I understand first hand parents that "keep" their children from enjoying something they love. They should be thankful you want to spend your time on fish and not drugs. When I lived with my parents (I was 23-24) I was only allowed to have a 10 gallon - after a year of fighting and a major raise at work, they let me get a 20 long. Now I live with my boyfriend and we have a 46, 20 and 16.

Please don't give up!

Aquariums are like jello - there's always room for more.

Hey Rudy....would they let you have a small tank if it didnt cost you a lot, if anything? I have some older used things that are sitting in boxes collecting dust. I can chip in a filter (Aquaclear 150) and maybe some other things. Lets see....I dont have anything expensive or nice, but just some junk that would be useful for a small tank...a filter, an old 50 watt heater (it works), a screw in style compact flourescent 10 watt 6700K bulb. I dont know how expensive it would be to ship, but I dont imagine it could cost much. I/d be willing to send them to you free of charge provided someone else could send you some other things that youll need. I dont know if its cost effective to send a small tank through mail, but Im sure someones done it before. What if I were to pitch in ten bucks for a Petsmart or Walmart gift card? You could pick up a ten gallon tank for that. What say you? Anyone else?

I am sure I have some stuff I could chip in - I have a bin of equipment that has been upgraded over the years- so I'd be happy to help if Rudy wants to give it a shot.

Rudy,

Please don't go. As has been said before you are a very important part of this community.

If a few of us get together and pitch in 5 or 10 bux a piece then Rudy could get the 29 gal and then his parents would not a spent a cent . But instead of everyone sending him a 5 or 10 buck gift card do we need to pool it and get RR to send it out as one?

Im in for 10 bucks if his parents will go for it. I can send it paypal to someone if they want to start a pool. I just want to be sure he gets it.

lol @youronlysin

I think you can order giftcards online... if a fund were to be started.. it could be sent to one person via paypal and that person buys and sends the giftcard to rudy

I guess if everyone could make a list of what could be sent (equipment wise) we can figure out what he needs at petsmart and then come up with an idea of how much would be needed for him to start an aquarium or something

BUT this should only be done once we know the parents reasoning *nod*
