Okay, so here is the deal:
I am aware of the issues that come along with a saltwater set up, but I am also ready to do what needs to be done along with it. I have never had fish since I was a little girl, so this is pretty new to me. My boyfriend has a large saltwater set up that he just purchased, but no fish yet. It is too big of a tank to have at my place for us, but he also has a small ten gallon tank... is that too small for a set up? Remember, I am new at this! His tank is 55 gal, and he is new to the salt waters too. He had a fresh water tank before.. and he knows quite a bit on fishtanks and all, but he is out of town on business, so I can't really sit and talk to him about all this. Okay so back on topic... I would really like to learn more about these and see if it will work. I briefly talked to him about keeping our cat at my apartment, but again, I don't want to leave him alone. I suppose you are wanting to know how/where/why I travel so much, but it is becuase since I am away at college, I am away from family and such, so I travel on the weekends to see them (the most important live an hour to five hours away... and if they live that far, I would stay overnights...) anyway, thats why I don't like leaving them alone. The lease for my apartment is SO strict, but it was the cheapest in my area that allowed pets, so I took it (I pay only $55 a month!
) and they don't allow any sort of rodent, so I am sure I can't have a hamster or a hedgie or anything... they are so strict! I really have no other options other than a) getting another animal (oh how I would love to!) b) letting cisco live here c) getting fishies... I will have to update ya'll...
Thanks so much for helping me out with options - I know my posts are long!
