To be fair, since it's a long I'll sell my twenty tall and put this in it's place. They literally do NOT sell twenty longs where I live and I'm so excited to get my hands on one, and I bought it with a glass lid and everything for $60 bucks. Now to transport it for ten hours ontop of everything else we have to pack... ;)

Not sure on your particular husband but with my wife she got used to 55 gallon tanks showing up in the back of my truck. So he should feel fortunate its only a 20 long.

That looks like a 2 cat tank ?
I am not sure 2 cats equal 20 g ..Maybe cats work out different long compared to tall?

Cats are a fluid you could probably fit 4 in there easy

I think we decided a cat equals only a gallon. The avarage cat weighs 8 pounds. So......

The thing is, my husband is very supportive of me getting new tanks... And I bet he's gonna come to me in about a month or two and say, "You know how I let you get that new tank in didn't pitch a fit about it and how nice I was? So there's this tractor..." :p

I KNOW that's coming up soon enough xD

That catfish is going to outgrow that tank in no time.
Good thing she has a 55 gallon dog kennel she shares with the dog to grow into. :p:D

Nah it's just the angle, she's a 3/4th of a gallon sized cat, just happened to be standing on the lid inside. Like Rev said, she's fluid so lots more of her could fit. XD

See, at least you swap your stuff. My husband is very attached to anything he brings home. He is a collector, not a trader... I don't know if this is allowed to be said on the forum, but you should see his firearm collection I think he's up to ten, not including my rifle. (hope that doesn't bother anyone that I mentioned it, we're from Idaho, it's part of our way of life.) I love him so dearly, it's hard to convince him to part with his treasures when we're cleaning. XD

He would totally bring home a backhoe if he thought he could get away with it...

Keep in mind that we're a young married couple in our early twenties, he still has years to add to his collection! XD and boy is he working on it! XD

I was married 10 days when I left home with a 79 thunderbird and came home with a 95 f150.

I shudder to think. ;) But we're farming folk so I'm pretty sure when we can afford the property we're hoping for a shop will be built quickly.

What’s the general rule here? Is it still 1 gal/ 1 inch of catfish? Do catfish like this have different rules? Things that make you wonder...
