It ends on the 24th from my understanding.bizaliz3 said:I thought I saw someone say the petco dollar per gallon sale is still going on. But not for much longer. I have also purchased many many used tanks on craigslist with great success.
thank you so much but my tiger barb is a glow fish and it looks fine in the 5 galbizaliz3 said:This question is WAY too broad.
There are tons and tons and tons of different kinds of fish out there that require different care and tank size and all that.
I highly recommend you look into at least a 20 gallon if you can. Because I think you will pretty disappointed at your limited options with a 5 or 10 gallon tank. Especially if you want to keep your barb.
You have him in a 5 gallon right now and if a 10 gallon is the highest you can go, I suggest rehoming the tiger barb. There is no way you can add other fish to a single tiger barb without that barb terrorizing them. They are a schooling species that can get pretty nippy when not kept in an appropriate sized school. It will be a stressed fish with no other barbs to keep it company. The other problem is, getting him just one or two more barb buddies will just make it worse. Barbs really must be kept in larger schools to spread out their aggression.
Here is my advice for a 5 gallon:
(not all together of course)
For a 10 gallon you are still very limited as most small fish are very active and should be kept in schools.
If you can afford to, and have space for, something larger...I highly recommend you do it.

I have a 20 gallon and I am looking for a 30 long with zero luck. Or a 40 long.
The sad part is I gave away my 50 gallon aquarium to my daughter as I planned to stop keeping fish. Fast forward 10 years and I am back into this full throttle.
My expense report proves it.
Its amazing how more knowledge about this hobby is expensive. And I'm already looking to upgrade.
I have been buying things with this in mind.
It looks fine? What does that mean to you? A barb is a barb. Whether the glofish brand has added their colorful genes to it or not. Its a barb. Not a glofish.fishmister said:thank you so much but my tiger barb is a glow fish and it looks fine in the 5 gal
haha! That would be quite a leap from a 5 gallon!fishmister said:I found a 125 gallon on Craigslist for 225$
ok mabey your rightbizaliz3 said:haha! That would be quite a leap from a 5 gallon!
I personally wouldn't start with something THAT large if you are still new to the hobby. But If you have the space and can afford it...maybe it is worth just diving in head first!!
The most common size you will find on craigslist (in my experience) is 29 gallon and 55g. I think you should go for one of those sizes. The 55 gallon being probably the most ideal.
