It a small tank (can't remember the size off hand). It a starter tank for kid but I was think on putting my Betta in it and my tetras and put 1 or two black moors into my old tank. To buy or not to buy?

How big is you old tank?

Moors get big and need 20g for the first one and 10 fro each additional one. They're also very dirty so filtering for at least double, if not triple for the tank size is a must in my book.

I do and they're the best, we treat them like the family dog, only without the walks lol. I think you just need to get a bigger tank .

Limpet I'm even more gutted just found a 4ft tank for £40 (around $80) on facebook full set up with stand. In pick it looked like a fluval 4u filter. And really reasonable lighting and the stupid person never even pm me back just put sold. Not a single bit of common curcursy. Absolutly gutted.

I hate it when that happens. Craigslist is even worse here (home of Craig Newmark) when they flake or sell it out from under you (name the product, it's not just aquarium stuff), or don't even show up.

Keep looking and you'll find it, then it's Moor time.
