I have a 1 gallon tank thats pretty old; its been more of a rescue tank than anything else though (saving fish that friends would've otherwise killed by bigger fish in the tank/taking babies from other tanks that were too ugly to be sold back to the fish store). I've done my research thus far, but unfortunately the guppy I had passed while someone was watching it for a summer.
I got back, and I wanted new fish. For the first time I went to the fish store, where the lady (who was completely wrong) told me that I could put 2 glofish in a 10 gallon tank and they would be happy (which I now know is wrong). Yeah, I should've done my research, but I thought fishstore staff would know their stuff.
Either way, I really like then and want to get a bigger tank for them. The problem is that I'm in college and my home state is on the other side of the country. My roommate is willing to take a 1 gallon tank home, but definitely wont take a 10 gallon tank. I think my uncle MIGHT be willing to take my tank if theres little or no work involved. That means that he could feed the fish daily, but he probably wont be willing to cycle the tank and do all the crappy work. I would also have to go there and set the tank up. My winter break is 1 month, and at least for this year my summer break would only be 1-2 months as well.
To top things off, I'm a poor college student, and I'll have to wait for my next paycheck before I can liberate my poor fishies :(
Advice? Should I get the 10 gallon tank with these limitations? Kinda a crappy situation here haha... :/
Also, would my glofish (note: NOT goldfish!!) school? One of them is bullying the other one, so would they eventually become kinda friends again?
EDIT: Oh, I forgot to say that right now my 1 gallon tank has a air stone/undergravel filter in it, and my fish flip out when it gets turned off. Would I have to get this for a 10g too?
