Someone save me/justify this.

Post by l_l_l on Wed Mar 26, 2014 5:55 pm

Let me explain.
I have what some people would call: a fascination.
And it is not stranger to you guys/girls.
I am fascinated by fish.
My father knows this and for my birthday, he offered me a 50$ gift card for a fish shop I like to go at.
Woop dee woop!
I am pretty much all set with equipement, test kits, ferts, medication, food...
What should I buy with this?!

I will be honnest with you, I have started to look at Bolivian Rams recently.. But I don't think I could add them to any of my tanks. Well... Maybe I could add a couple in my 20g, but my shrimp would go extinct.

Has it struck you yet that your kind father is trying to save you from the worst of conditions, not enough aquariums syndrome?

Plants fish filters.....tanks! But seriously, an extra filter or power head on tanks are always beneficial.

Gary, if I keep up the pace, in one your I would be at 10 tanks and would soon be victim of not enough room syndrome.
Actually, it's already the case.
Plants are for sure on my buy list, as for powerheads or filters, I don't think I need some, having to actually dose nitrates to my tanks due to massive amount of plants.

Well.. I've been thinking, I might try to breed my peacock gudgeons, so maybe I'll get some breeding supplies! :O

The last time we had a pet shop gift card (for $30), we stocked up on frozen bloodworms and shrimp for the fish  Wink

What a luxury! Having the money to spend on fish and not knowing what to do with it?! I don't mind accompanying you and those 50 dollars will be spent in no time!
