So, the title made no sense...XD Anyway, I'm moving to Atlanta which is 2,000 miles away from where I am. I cannot take Herobrine (my betta), or my tank. That really, really, bums me out. I will have to sell both. I'm probably going to cry = (. But, I have done my math, and turns out I can afford a goldfish tank. I spent $50 on plants and substrate and $15 for a heater. I'm not getting either of those (maybe some sprigs of Anarchis [sp?] or hornwort), and I'm going bare bottom. Thats $65 dollars less (I can do math!), and although I need a bigger tank, and a bigger-er filter, I can fit it in with the money I am selling my tank. That thrills the heck out of me . So, I am very slighly experienced and is moving on to goldfish. Will there be a drastic increase between difficulty if I was just on a betta? I know bubble-eyed and celestials are oober sensitive, but what about telescopes? I love telescopes, and moors too. Are they a good starter? Or an oranda? Pretty adorable, but I do prefer telescopes. I'm guessing pearscales are hard, a shame since they are so danged cute. Another thing is, that I need a good filter reccomended to me. I read the boxes carefully, and I am having a hard time finding the right GPH. It's 10x the water volume for normal fish,and 20x for goldies? I am getting a 20 gallon (of course.) and I've looked at a filter for a 75 gallon that does only 310 GPH, which is kinda sad (anyone know why the GPH on filters is so small?) Canisters frighten me, and I don't think I can afford it. Thanks for enduring my questions I'm not sure this is in the right section, I'm sorry if it's not.
I set it up back in January, and I didn't know about cycling until after I put the fish in >.< They made it (duh) even though they went through 3 different filters and lived for 3 weeks without one. (It broke, I couldn't afford to replace it) They were going to go to GreenTea but we found out we couldn't make the drive to meet up. Then I lucked into brand new Marineland 350s for 8 dollars! I had to rush them into 55 when my algae started dying... Anyways, here are Tui and La before their color faded! Oh, and anyone who can tell me where the names came from get ten points.
