Sesame Street nano tank

Wife's new desk companion. $9 at Petco! Cookie Monster and gravel was extra. 2.5 gallons. Will serve as hospital tank and maybe shrimp tank.

It came with a pretty nice mini Fluval style filter with a spray bar attachment. That alone is worth the $9.

So, how much could you have saved by just buying the filter?

I've never seen the mini filter by itself before. Closest thing is this http://www.drsfostersmith.com/produc...32&pcatid=3632 My wife wanted this "tank" to put on her desk. It's a hobby. It's okay to have a little fun with stupid stuff like this from time to time.

I figured you were. Gotta have a sense of humor.

This thing was originally marked at $38! No suprise that it got marked down to $9 on clearance. Like I said, I can always use the cool mini filter it came with. Plucked some wisteria and some snails from my 75 gallon to cycle.

I was rather proud that I found a bag of matching gravel colors.

OMG! Between that, the "neon rocks" tank, and others I have seen, I thing that we all need to take a walk back in time. Dig out the old 10 gal. collecting dust, fill it with clown barf, Get the treasure chest dancing, let goofy do his scuba, AND POST THE PICS!!! If it aint plastic, it aint allowed. Well, maybe a few fish, as long as they are wrong for the aquarium LOL.
