what kind of fish should i get???

mine's 30G Freshwater tank and i know these fishes are kinda overstocking but i can't just stop buying fishes. I don't know whenever i see some cool fishes(you know cheap community ones) just wanna buy em. anyway, i am selling two of them(Gold algae eater and Kuhlii Loach...) in my tank just because they could potentially outgrow my tank in few years and become more aggressive as they grow and more importantly so i can buy more new ones. I don't know i just want to keep the balance of the number of fish in my tank in my head but somehow my body doesn't listen Does anyone had that kinda feeling before???

Yes, I get this feeling all the time. Rather than overstock I just go and set up another tank!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

it's just that my dad is not a fish person but he rather have a dog but we live in apartment so... and my mom doesn't like me having a tank with full of fishes because she doesn't like watching small living things dead.

oh bummer... now thats a problem =S since your dad ike animals explain that you like fish.fish teaches responsibilities like dogs and you prefer them =) say it would be great if you had him work with you on a little project that involves fish as part of a bonding thing. always works for me.your dad will feel oh well he's learning responsibility and he want's to spend time with me and mom will go aww..... thats so touching my 2 men getting along so lovingly.... and tada not long after that you get away scot free to have as many tanks as you want =)
