Alright, I've been an aquarist for almost 10 years now, and I've always loved the hobby, but I'm now starting to wonder if I should get rid of the tank for a few reasons. I'll make a list, and maybe you guys could give some input.
Why I shouldn't keep it:
-takes up a good portion of room in our little town home
-I can't put a whole lot of time into the tank with school, work, and life
-and most importantly, my daughters safety. I'll explain below
Why I should keep it:
-I've spend a good amount of money on it, and would definitely not make that money back
-My daughter and wife both like it too. My daughter gets hypnotized by it for some reason ha
-I worked hard to convince my landlord to let me have it in the first place
As I mentioned above, my daughters safety is the main reason I'm thinking of getting rid of it. She's 10 months old now, and often likes to crawl up to tank and hold on to the stand. I'm pretty sure she couldn't push it over at her current weight, but I'm worried when she's able to run and climb. She'll weigh more too. We do a really good job at keeping her off of it, but there's been a few times where she's pulled herself up on it, without us knowing. Part of me doesn't want to sell it, because I could never find the shrimp a new home (or really catch them all for that matter ha) and because I won't make hardly any money back, but most of me wants to get rid of it for my daughters safety.
What do you guys think? Can you think of any other solutions?? Or would it be best just to get rid of it??
