LOL Cody. You just don't want them bad enough. For if you did, you would empty a tank for them.
In my earlier days in the hobby, I did just the same thing. I believe that the fish I fell head over heels for was the serpea tetra. I was probably about 15 years old.
A little word of encouragement, a 10g tank with just the basics, doesn't cost that much. No heater is needed, marbles for substrate, in case they start breeding. Sponge filter, power filters will devour the fry. And some floating plants, my choice in my tanks is elodea...
A used 10g an be picked up dirt cheap, sometimes $5 or less. Use that extra air pump you have lying around. Glass canopy. You might even check out a neighborhood rummage sale, I have picked up complete 29g setups for $10. I just had to haggle a bit.
How "hungry" are you to have them. For less than $20 you can have the set up.
How I love "egging" people on in their addiction. lol
