Oh wow! If tanks were that expensive here I would never have been able to get my first one!

I got my 60 gallon new with stand, hoods, lights, filter and substrate for around $335.00.
I also bought a used 29 gallon with everything even the substrate and decorations for $100.

This little one was marked 4.99. So gorgeous, so cheap, I almost made a amazing but bad impulse buy.

Does anyone else have that issue?
That's a pretty angel I want him!

That's how I got my betta, I just couldn't leave him behind. Fortunately I still had lots of space in my tank. I am currently restraining myself from buying a pair of GBRs. They are approx. $4 each, and I really like how they look but don't think my other fish would like them, and my 15 gallon section is close to fully stocked with my harlequin school and my ricefish. Every time I go in I go watch them, there are a lot fewer than there were just a week ago.

If you're the kind of person who can't help themselves with impulse purchases, then learn to not put yourself in that position. The safest thing you can do for your existing fish is to walk away.

I'd been debating about a betta or a gourami as my one bigger fish to go with my harlequins. Pyro just helped me make up my mind I CAN restrain myself if I know I don't have space/proper conditions. I was right to grab him when I saw him. A week later and all the bettas he came with were gone. However, if I hadn't had room for him, he would have stayed behind.
I also managed not to buy the congo tetras, even though they are gorgeous, because again, too big for my tank.
