Well we started with a 10 gallon tank with mollies to help keep our cat entertained and she loved it!
Then before we moved someone offered to trade us our 10g set up for there 29g set up with stand! So how could we say no?
After letting the 29 cycle and add fish we checked the local craigslist (Just moved out here thinking even though we didnt have jobs at the time we had a few months rent saved up so....)we got a 55 for a screaming deal. Then while checking out our LFS
we saw our first Dwarf and Figure 8 puffers and fell in love.... so we bought a 10g, and a 5g for breeding snails for him!
Now that our 55 is looking like its done cycling we're saving up for another/ trying to upgrade our 29 and checking out some of these double decker aquarium stands.... hopefully upgrading the 29 to a 40 within the month.
Total elapsed time 3.5 months LOL
