ugh I wish the hobby was cheaper Luckily my dad is good at woodwork so he made me a fancy looking stand for free and it's really strong haha, well for my 50g anyways.
I really want to start a bigger tank, but my money situation is Just lucky enough to be able to upkeep my current 3

Thank you for the compliment! Sadly, I know nothing about SW tanks. This is my first tank and it's FW.

Thank you very much! We both put a lot of effort into the aesthetic of the tank.

And yes, she is pretty amazing... She's a poor college student without a job, yet she depleted her savings for me to have this tank. I think that says something.

I have to tell you, I learned so much on AA in the past month regarding fish tanks that I probably would've ended in disaster had I not. Betta bowls is one of those things I found out. Haha, took my sister to the LFS with us last weekend and got her jonesing for a new tank for her Betta. She was looking at a few of the 2G tanks and I mentioned how she should save for something bigger.

Little does she know she'll have not only a tank, but all the fixins to go with it come Friday. =D

Well, she's 11. She got herself a book on Betta care and how to properly treat, feed and provide for the Betta, but unfortunately it didn't really cover the basic aquarium care.

So that much I'll be teaching her and setting her well on her way to proper water and fish care, should she ever wish to pursue this further in the future. Plus, I have all the test kits and conditioner and everything, which'll make it easier on her (very) shallow purse.

I'm definitely a victim of MTS. Got a Betta tank, a frog tank with a snail, and my twenty nine gallon community tank.

Does a qt tank count? One of my guppies was being picked on when I brought him home-literally! He has almost half of one of his fins gone. That's why he's named Nemo!

I don't know that a QT tank counts, sorry Dakota. =P Nevertheless, you do have three tanks, which certainly says something.

thats great, it's a shame that proper aquarium care isnt as easy to learn about... When your a kid everyones taught how to take care of cats and dogs, no one really teaches about fish... Before I started learning about them though I guess my mindset was theyre just fish... but now they seem more than JUST fish
@betta, your definately on your way to mts :P Actually I think you have it now... but good for you for keeping a QT tank

Lol. Yeah, I figured it wouldn't count. Alas.

Yeah, I've only been in the hobby for a couple of months. Well, if you count the bettas in bowls when I was younger then I guess I've been in the hobby for a few years! But that I don't count because I did it completely wrong!
