I finally have multiple tank syndrome! :)
Although only still a newbie if fish keeping my desire for a 2nd tank has come true.Even while I was still cycling my 10g I was thinking about a 5g tank for a betta and some shrimp (I even got a nice piece of bogwood thats curved like a cave for the purpose).I got a aqua one 320 with cabinet off ebay tonight and will be picking up tomorrow,I'll put the filter to run along my filter in my 10g to get some BB (will a week do to get a decent BB start?) then I'll transfer a fish over to the new tank to keep it cycling until I get a betta & plants next month/payday (shrimp will come later when the tank is established).
Since winning the bid I have seen another tank (about 7g) going cheap with a broken hinge so hopefully it will stay cheap,ideas are now running through my head for that one :P (time to be sweet to my wife),though 3 tanks will be my limit..so I keep telling myself
Hopefully the betta will be shrimp friendly (if not the 3rd tank will be useful!)
