thanks, i will keep the lighting in mind. i live in a small town.. which is the largest town for hours. we have 2 small pet stores and walmart. i already checked out freecycle just in case someone there had a 10-25 gallon. i haven't checked craigslists. i think one of the pet stores sells used tanks, so i want to get over there and see how much they want for those. this is the 2nd time i have listened to someone in a petstore and regretted it. from now on i will just have to research things online instead of seeking their advice. he knew it was a new tank and didn't say anything about them needing to be in a group of 6 or more. he also knew it was a 1 gallon, sold me a heater that is a pain to keep steady since it is not meant for a 1 gallon. didn't say a word about that not being enough room. he should have suggested something that would fit in my tank, since i was asking questions and seeking advice.
ok, i am done venting for now. i am hoping to find a reasonable 20 gallon so that i can get 4 more glofish and 6 neon tetras. i just love watching them, and my daughter gets a big kick out of them. she is the one responsible for remembering to feed her fish... she has never forgotten. she worries about them and checks on them. she sings them songs and tells them stories. so it has been a good learning experience for her.
question... do they have to have a cover on the tank, or could i just use a clip on light?
