Sounds good to me. I'm glad its an easy deal. As I said before, I only offer help provided this is acceptable with the parents. My mother would have been the same way, i.e. "Who are these people?". If she knew that this was something I really wanted, she would ask me to show her who those people were and get her familiar with what goes on here. However, if it were quite simply that they didnt want to spend the money on something they dont think is worth it, then I would be willing to help out. Heck...I'd make that offer to anyone that had a desire but couldnt do it for a legitimate reason. The last thing I want to do is overstep any parents authority and tell some kid that he can have what he wants dispite his parents wishes. That is not the proper way to go about things and I hope it didnt sound like that was my intention. All in all, Im glad that your parents are still in the game and want to do this for you. Thats great news. As long as they are expressing an interest in helping you, dont get too jumpy and start asking when! I want to see you post when you get that new tank! Then we can see about getting you set up right! I think its really cool that you came here before you even got a tank and started doing your research right off the bat. Thats commendable. Kudos to you for that! Good luck!

Sounds like your going to be an aquarist. I hope your parents didnt feel pressured into this. I know from recently becomming a parent that decisions we as parents make are made because we truly feel its in the best interest of our children.

I was going to comment that there is no need to feel like you will never have a tank. After all one day your going to be out on your own and at that time you can get one or two or three like Lori.

TD (Tank Deprivation) - An illness common amongst people who desire an aquarium (reference opposite condition known as MTS - Multiple Tank Syndrome). It was with this in mind that members were and are willing to donate, construct, build tanks for those who really want one. Of course, Melody and Youronlysin are correct in stating that any parent would flip if a ton of complete strangers trying to talk my kid into getting a tank.

Rudy, this will work out in the end, I'm sure of it. Keep plugging! 8)

LOL you guys are funny but i think i MIGHT be getting it today maybe not

the reason why i didnt get it i why i PROBABLY wont get is is cause my US Government teacher called telling my parents that i have a 63%(which is a low D)

so my parents said when thats up is when i get my tank

so hopefully i will get it tonight or tomorrow cause i pulled the grade up to a high C

this is the scoring at my school

100-90% A
89-80% B
79-70% C
69-60% D
59-0% F

So it was a disiplanry thing? We sure won't step all over your parents toe's. We are glad you are getting your tank soon, keep on those grades, you sound like a smart person so it shouldn't be a problem.

There is a really good deal at my local petsmart, not sure if its at one near you but its a 30 gallon tank with a wooden frame with the entire setup (( heater, filter, lighting )) for only 80 dollars.. i know thats hefty but for the nice stuff it comes with. (( plus the stand is really nice )) it also comes with food. Flakes, freeze dried blood worms, shrimp pellets ect... but i don't know how old it is.

We are far to young and clever
-too* in retrospect the irony hurts
