This caught my eye on Craigslist & the first thing that came to my mind was this generous community here at BCA the ad reads:

"Fish tank aquarium wanted for 8 year old boy"
my 8 year old son loves fish and has saved up $25 for a fish tank
Looking for a 10 gallon tank/aquarium with lights and fillter for $25 or less
willing to pick up any offers please email to [email protected] or call 604-820-4822
Thank you have a nice day

even if someone had a 10 gal with a top for free he could get a new hob filter and heater for it at Walmart with the money he has. Could be a future member in the making lol

Being an animal lover and still a "kid" (for a while at least), I remember the feeling of longing for a pet. Good on you guys for being great people and helping him get into the hobby!!! :D

Holy smpkes eh :) I spoke to the guy and offered a free 10 gallon and filter so he would still have $ for a light . He is coming into town this week to pick up a company van ( his broke down yesterday ) he will be coming by my place to do so. I any one wants to donate a canopy and light ..:D.
He is also going to bring his son to have alook at my tanks.I am sure MTS as well as BTS virus will get passed on to him.:D....
Or his Dad might just go buy him a hamster instead ....upon seeing my place :D

the family came by the other day and i gave him my 10g set up but i didnt have an extra heater of that size....needed some cleaning, the gravel some rinsing and filter media but dad has a 55g he can steal some from. They actually have 2 boys so he was waiting to hook up with bill sometime next week i believe.
