Y'all know I'm a bit of a kook. I get in moods and start itching to acquire something strange.
If not for the cost, I'd get this:

Me, too.

If I get this job and we get a big old house up here, I'm at least going to indulge in a saltwater tank.

Salt water tank... i think that takes more work than a parrot !! Jelly fish tank is kind of neat though.

That is kinda cool! As far as the salt water tank, they are more work to get set up but are less work than a freshwater tank once they are set up, as they are more self sufficient.

Maybe because mine had lots of big fish and stuff ,but it was a lot of work. Cleaned it lot more often than the freshwater tanks, and keeping the water right.maybe if i lived where i could pump seawater straight to it would be alright.

Shoot. I remember my first salt endeavor. It was before the invention of skimmers and refugiums (at least for the home aquarium). I had a 20 gal salt on a under gravel filter. Talk about a lot of doodling to keep everything within the correct parameters.

It looks like a nice reef tank's pretty self sufficient.

Okay. So ... just last night I talk the hubby into letting me get a betta (also got a super awesome betta bowl for him; he's stylin'). His name is Baxter.

Now I wish I had used that energy to talk him into getting a jellyfish... *sigh*

I wonder how many eyelash bats it takes to get a jellyfish...

Oh yah. He has the whole shebang! One little Betta in a giant (for him) tank, with his heater, and light, and filter, and and and and...

After the cast of TNG got Ick (we had a 20 gallon aquarium and named all the fish after Star Trek characters), we decided to have a one fish home, and to ensure that they have the BEST home possible.

You've got him in a 20G?! Man I feel terrible for those teeny cup-dwellers Sad

The last of my fish died in one of my 10Gs..... That means that I'm setting up a betta tank! I used to have one, a single betta in a 10G is my favourite set up by far Smile

@zazanomore.... ha ha ha Singing Laughing

Oh, he's not in a 20g (no room for a 20g with Poe). He's in a super awesome 7g and seems to be LOVING it.

Oh man...

They were named after TNG, but it was like watching the Sopranos! There was fighting over the women, food... Lor killed Data over Troy and Q Swam slowly, overlooking everything, never bothered by the problems amounst the others...

When the rest of the tank got ick, Q was the only survivor. I'm pretty sure he had a hand in it somehow Rolling Eyes
