Do you ever buy a fish...

...and realize they aren't really going to work in your tank, so you buy a WHOLE NEW TANK just for the darn things so that they can be happy.

Well actually I got African dwarf frogs. They aren't too cool on my cube tank, it being pretty deep. So I got a new tank, just for them.

I'm actually hoping that maybe Petsmart will take them back. I just don't know what their return policy for live animals are.

They take returns. I don't remember how long the return period is.

My LFS takes returns. The three jumbo platy we got for the tank were terrorizing the smaller tetra, nipped fins, stress deaths, the whole nine yards. Plus, they were doing a number on the live plants and even ripping each other up. Plus, crapped a storm. Returned them for three blue rili shrimp - far more peaceful inhabitants!
