  1. I wish you could see my happy face right now! *goes to look it up*
  2. Holy Schmaoley, I had no idea I was going to spark a debate when I posted this! As things worked out I've been very sick this last week, and all the tanks were snatched up before I could get my hands on one. The reason I was going with the 10 gallon was because it had a very nice start-up kit included. Not something for really long term or extended keeping, but something to kick start the hobby back up for me. I had no intention of keeping a large, fully grown fish in it. Just a baby and upgrading as needed. @Fantailfan - I love that you're an #enabler ! Even at $1 a gallon there's no way I could afford the filtration necessary to run a 40 gallon. Looks like things may have worked out for the best for right now.
  3. Hey all! It's been a very, very long time since I had goldfish in my house. Admittedly it was out of control (90 gallon with 2 fish. They killed anything else I put in there), but I might have an opportunity to start up again. There were a number of 10 gal aquarium starter kits (good kits, not useless ones) donated to the shelter I now work at. Management is trying to determine how many the shelter needs, and the rest should be up for grabs. So I'm trying to decide if I'm ready to jump back into this. I know it's addicting, I did it for 7 years with lots of lessons learned, and that's what scares me. I know how easily 'Oh, just one baby in a 10 gallon is all I need' turns into 'I need a giant custom tank and ALL THE GOLDFISH'. Also looks like in the time I've been gone we're recommending 15-20 gallons per fish instead of 10? Or is that still for streamliners? ^_^ Thanks!
