The ammonia you can control, it'll be a lot of work but doable. Aggression is what's going to get you. If it's for the very, very short term I might risk it. But if it's going to be a week or two,...

All you really need to get started is an aquarium, a filter, some water and some fish. I understand where you're coming from. I'm on a tight budget, and just recently got my 70 gal back up and...

I hear ya on that one. I say, if they can make it past the pit bull, and then get the safe open, then they deserve to take whatever they can steal.
