Thanks again! I know I don't need another tank but I looked through the betta photo thread and fell in love with bettas all over again. If I can squeeze out some money I think I'll be getting a 5 gallon for one or two more bettas!! Crazy me :)

Haha I have the same problem!! We actually started with a 50 then I picked up two goldfish at our fair, ended up with a 10 gallon, grew to a 29! With a betta tank on the side haha. Crazy stuff, even worse when your parents don't share the same enthusiam as you! I've actually been bitten by both the betta and gourami bug. They seem to be peeking out as my favorites (don't tell). Except I'm running out of gourami room, so I went with bettas since they don't need quite as large of tank! So what are you planning to do in the 55?

Indeed! I started out with my 50 too, dad gave it to me after we moved and actually encouraged me to go and get into the hobby, read up on fish, research, all that stuff. The 20 and 10 were from my Hermit Crabbing days, dug them out of storage and set them up Current;y we're working on getting an old gradenza up into my room to make a little 'fish corner', giving me room for the 55
Haha, I must admit I love my betta but Gouramis have to be my favorite. I can never pinpoint why, I thought I'd be traumatized after that vicious Opaline Gourami we'd had, but apparently not
Same here, running out of room for my Gourami obsession thats where the 55 comes in. I'm planning it as a Gourami tank, all sorts of different species. I know I definitely want a Moonlight and a Pearl or two...I'll probably be talking to my LPS about getting Chocolates and Samurai....
And I'm getting ahead of myself Gotta find a good deal on Craigslist first and tell my parents its what I want for my B-day xD

Wow a gourami community? That would be AWESOME!! My pearls are definetly my favorite of the gouramis, I wish my local petstores sold moonlights, or chocolates. I guess we don't get first pick up here in Montana haha! I've got my little 10 gallon in my room then right outside are all the others :) My room is so dark though, being in the basement, I kinda feel bad for the little guys being in the dark.

Yup, I thought it would be pretty neat to have a semi-planted(no green thumb here)Gourami community type tank. I love Pearls and Moonlights, get to see them all the time when I take a trip to my LPS. The Moonlights are always the first to come greet me Very beautiful and friendly.
I was talking to this one woman last time who worked at my LPS and seemed to share my love of Gouramis She said the Chocolates have been really hard to find lately, but hopefully my the time I get my tank and have it set up I can ask a little more about them. I'd love to have at least two!
Ahh, good old Montana, lived there for about six years Hate the weather
All tanks are in my room, the 50 and future fish corner right nest to me bed actually. Get to wake up every morning to my Angel begging for food

Yup, got a couple friends back in Montana too xD Brutally cold in the winter, brutally hot in the summer, such a blast when your working a barn year 'round too

Haha, I suppose its a decent size....though I am going to have to sacrifice my nightstand to fit in the gradenza
