I feel like I know a ton more than the people who there too! Except at petsmart you have to be 18 I think to work with the live animals... I almost got a job at my local store but I also procrastinated and never got around to turning in my application! Oops. I'm a little hesistant to but a tank off craigslist, I don't know my mom is always like, you never know what kind of person is selling the tank... Driving is fun actually! It was a little scary at firs but fun now that I can drive without parents!! Especially because of the new driving laws here you have to drive 50+ hours with an adult and have your permit for 6 months before taking a drivers test. That's what I did on my first day of summer, the night before my mom said you're first day of summer will be memorable! haha they didn't tell me they made me an appointment to take the test until the morning of! Haha thanks, the boys are still acting normal and flaring at eachother :)

Haha, well I'll be 18 here in like little over two weeks.....if only there was a Petsmart nearby....
Yeah, I'm working on my Application....okay, dads helping me <.<;
lol, Well because I can't drive I need a ride....meaning anyone I go to meet on Craigslist will likely be meeting my dad too So no worries there. I suppose thats a perk...
Oh man, I'm way scared to drive....I can do my dads truck up and down the driveway but I think I'd panic on the road. Need to learn though....theres another job I'd like to apply for once I'm outta High School, but I need to be able to drive.
Glad the boys are acting normal though, thats good to hear

Yeah I'd be fine if my dad came to get a tank!! I wouldn't feel intimidated! Haha I totally understand the nervousness to drive I was totally scared out of my wits! But I was the third child to learn to drive in my family so my dad totally knows what to do. My mom wasn't so fun to drive with, you get the SLOW DOWN and WATCH OUT! When you're actually fine haha. :)

lol, Yeah I'm kid number one.....my dads okay to drive with, mom won't even let me behind the wheel when shes in the car. I've tried to let her let me drive down the driveway with her, but she'll have none of it.
Yeah....my friends are starting to tease me though, I need to learn to drive xDD

YAY freedom!! The boys are doing a little better, Sinbad is in his own 5 gallon now. They both got 2 salt baths yesterday and have had 2 today. I will probably do at least 2 more today. I don't see much improvement on the fins but they aren'tany worse. Sinbad is still kickin so I think he should be okay. Haha knowing me and my little "betta obsession" I'll probably divide both my 5 and 10 gallon and get two more bettas ;) shame on me haha. I'll just have to do some test runs with Merlin to make sure he can't find a way around the divider!! How's tank shopping?

Haha yes! Anime conventions here I come!*super geeky moment*
Glad to know they're doing okay, and at least they're not getting any worse I bet they'll pull through alright
To be honest I'm looking into getting a second ten for my Betta and possibly dividing it for a second Betta.....and my 20 will soon be empty of Cichlids, so I need to figure out what Imma do with that...
Ugh, so far nothing good on Craigslist around here that I can't find cheaper elsewhere. I'm still checking though ^^;

Lol! Yeah I think they'll be ok. Thanks! Why are you getting rid of the cichlids? A ten gallon would be really cool, your betta will love you! You can even divide it into 3's if you wanted to, and get 2 more bettas!!! YAY! In the 20 you could do the gouramis, or an awesome school of tetras. There's so many options! :)

The Cichlids were actually given to me by my Uncle, not my favorite fish.....and I just don't have the proper room for them. They're constantly fighting and beating each other up, not to mention my 20 gallon really needs to be drained.....tests are coming out fine but theres something in the water.....
So the plan is to drain it(keep the filters wet)rise decor and gravel, let it go with the dwarf pleco and the Rasbora(lone surviver of Eeyore the Opaline Gourami)for a little while, then slowly add fish. Still have yet to totally decide what I want to do with it, there really are so many options
Maybe I'll just divide that into threes and get two more bettas xD
