What a Deal!!! Loook what I got today!!!

My son wants a tank in his room. He is 10 years old. His birthday is in Feb and I told him that we will get him one for his birthday. His grandparents and uncles are going to go in with us.

Well, I was at Wal Mart today getting supplies for my tank and what do I see.......but a 46 gallon bow tank with stand clearanced for $179.00. I jumped on that one. We went ahead and got it and set it up. So he got his birthday gift a month early, but I could not let that one pass me by. We were going to get him a 35 gal hex tank. It would have costed us close to $300.

Here is a picture of it. We got it set up today. He is going to put Parannas(sp) in it. I am not happy about it, but him and my husband out number me.

Try the link above. The tank is the one labeled mtank and mtank2.

I am trying to get him to change his mind. He wants an unusual type of fish. Do you have any suggestions?

I have gotten my son to change his mind about the pirannas. I found a site that said that 2 pirannas need atleast 60+ gallons to be happy. His tank is 46 gal.

So he wants 2 of my fancy tail guppies to breed.

I am so happy he changed his mind. He told me that after a few months he want to put his guppies back in my tank and get some bigger fish.

I will take what I got for now and worry about what bigger fish he wants when the time comes. hehe

Nice tank!

I'm glad he changed his mind since pirannahs need alot more room then that.

Definately a good find .
