man i LOVE kijiji! i thought i was going to lose my crown as the scrounge queen but kijiji for the win! i just got myself a 25 gallon tank with everything except the canopy included for free! i'm picking it up on friday. now i just need to find a place for it (anyone know how to re-enforce a bookcase?) and pick up a canopy and light and a water tester to start the cycling for it. would i be able to pick up a canopy for it at a pet store without having to get a tank too? do think i would be able to find it at say walmart or just a pet store?
if i use the filter i have for the 10 gal that has been working for the last 27 months with 3 gold fish, how much time do you think it would take the 25 gal to cycle? the previous owner said he had just cleaned the filter 2 days before i got it, so on the 26. does that matter?
