ok so I had bought a 10 gallon for $5 at a flea market a few months ago which I had intended to keep my betta and possibly something else that didn't absolutely HAVE to have filtration just so the betta wouldn't be rattling about in such a huge house all by his lonesome
but I soon realized 10 gallons unfiltered looks pretty unsightly pretty quickly!!
before I got him any friends I priced the hood/filter/light etc. for the 10 gallon and wound up putting the betta back into his 2 gallon brandy glass/bowl (he has since died... maybe too much moving around) - anyway...
the price of all the stuff I needed wasn't far off from what I'd need for a larger tank, so I went ahead and got a 20 gallon which I've been dealing with for a month or so
but I'm seriously considering getting a new/better filter for the 20 gallon - I suppose I could just keep the current filter on the 20 as extra fitration - OR I could use it on the 10 which has just been sitting here collecting dust
I'm trying to think of something interesting to do with it before it winds up at the end of my driveway with a FREE sign on it
obviously I'm pretty limited with it being so small - but there has to be SOMETHING I can do with it that wouldn't be a complete waste of money to run the thing
