Thanks guys! :D a 75g would be so much nicer and I think my parents are going to let me..! My 50g just seems so small lately! It just would be a lot of work to transfer everything! And my poor plants were just starting to get comfortable? Any tips on how to go about transferring? I was thinking I would suck 5 gallons out (or more, I have a huge cooler I can use maybe!), and put my angelfish and neon tetras in. Then, I thought I'd take the plants and put them in their own container, then thoroughly vaccuum the gravel, transfer the gravel to the new tank, and add some new gravel to the old gravel. Then transfer most of the water and fish. I think my heater and filter will be sufficient? 150 W and eheim 2217. I won't have much funds to buy more right after I get the tank.
I'm kinda excited, my dad shouldn't have mentioned that he thought a 75g aquariums oils be fine, weight wise, on the second story of our house. XD that's why I was thinking I could never get one. But maybe I will ask my uncle who builds houses (or something like that) what he thinks structurally! I do live in California and my dad said it worried him for earthquakes.... But my 50g would probably already ruin the house if we had one large enough to break it :/............
Anyways, that's enough rambling. :) for an update on the fins, they have grown back quite a bit. Maybe 3-4 mm now? And I don't see any bends as of yet. Maybe I will try to get a picture.
Also, on Tuesday night I got a big piece of Malaysian driftwood and some java fern, dwarf water lettuce, and a crypt balansea that I'm excited about :)!
