If you can, a 40 breeder would be great. He would probably be ok till april, but like I said, start with the larger one instead of upgrading. It will be cheaper.
Makes sense, but my mom wont let me get another big tank ATM. So i guess this will have to do. Maybe if i can find a good deal tommarow then i will get it.

I was saying that a Biocube doesn't actual have 29 gallons in the display. I think it was like 25 or something.

Aquaclear filters are much, much, much better quality than the Aqueons IME.

Although I don't have direct experience with one, I still think they should be placed in at least a 30 breeder so they get that extra 6" of width to turn around and such. I think if you get a smaller one and plan on upgrading in the near future it'll be fine.

I agree! Start with the larger, it will be cheaper in the long run, and the equipment cost would be almost the same as it would be for a 20 gallon. So there would be no reason to start a 20 and upgrade later.

If you really want to put your guy in a 20 gallon for a few months, yes you can do that, but I think if you do upgrading will just cost you more in the long run. If you really want your guy to be healthy and live it's full live and grow to be a beauty you will want to put him in the best tank you can from the start! It's not only better for the fish, but better for you as well. Because you will be saving money in the long run!

I would go with a Fluval heater, one should be fine that's rated for a 50 or higher. Online heaters are cheaper than ones in the store.
