The third time maybe the charm!

The 3 gallon tank i was planning on getting ended up falling through
and then my friends have these huge tanks, and i asked if they had an extra i could buy off of them *thinking 10-15 gallons* so we get over there to load it up, the thing is a freaking 55 gallon! i have NO room for that!
so after that i put a "wanted" listing on craigslist, not really expecting to get replies, after all, its a fish tank.
And i got 2 this morning! one is for a 5 gallon Eclipes Corner tank. with a filter and light. Its $20 and i can get it tomorrow. and then i will exchange my broken tank for a new one, and yay! hopefully all will be well...
Now i have to figure how to cycle this dang thing for D. Puffers!

the other one is a 10 gallon, fully loaded, but she wants 50 for it, and i don't have that much atm... lol also wanted $20 for a 1/2 gallon unfliltered

Congrats on the new tank!
Just a word of caution, if you plan on putting two D puffers in a 5gal, it may not work. My D puffers started in a 5gal, I had to move them into a 10 gal tank. One of the puffers was very nervous in the 5gal, always pacing up and down the glass.

Thanks for the advice twistersmom. Ill see. If i need to i can temperarily set them up another tank or move a betta back to a bowl, and a dp to the other tank. I have heard mixed problems with them, but most sucess. so we will see how it goes and ill keep a close eye on them.

I maybe able to set up the 55 this summer. but not in my room.

How long should the 5gallon take to cycle?

Lol i and now i am getting the 3 gallon as well! i get it next week, and the other two today... Lol! so i will have a DP tank, a snail tank *for DP's, unless i can find a filtered 1 gallon, which would be prefered*, a betta tank *i think i will put sushi in, really don't want to mess with surimi's progress, and a betta bowl i think i may be going slightly over board... hmmm now i kinda want to put one in my bathroom like the one member on here... we will see
