I usually (98% of the time) spend my own money on fish supplies and stuff. Only on a rare occasion do I ask my parents for money to buy the fish food.
The tank has been stable and clean for quite some time now (should do more water changes..)
It's not the tank itself they complain about its just the money and the fact that I'm pretty much obsessed XD.
My mom just told me we don't have room for a bigger tank, the only place we have room is in the garage.
If I didn't live in Texas I'd consider it.
But the heat/cold would probably be too much
. I was actually designing a rack system with multiple tanks plumbed together a few weeks ago..
