It is fine, your problem appears getting you to put enough letters in some configuration that at least gives spell check something to work with.  I can't help you with the aquarium, but I'll gladly send you a dictionary.

IMHO There is no such thing as an aquarium that's "too large".  All to often, people try to cram too much into a tank and are doomed to failure.  (That is why you'll find many used tanks for sale.)  That said, I think you are going to have trouble trying to get everything you need for $50.00.  There are cheap aquariums and good aquariums, but there are no "good cheap" aquariums.  Definitely search craigslist and the classified ads, but don't necessarily jump at the first opportunity.  As CrabmanC27C said, don't buy a used tank unless you see it sitting full of water.  Also, ask the owner what they used it for and why they are selling it.  You don't want a tank that was used for guinea pigs.  Be sure to get the best filter you can afford, many times people buy undersized filters.  Make sure the filter is rated for a higher capacity than the volume of the tank.  If you never had an aquarium, I'd forget Butterfly fish for now, they are very difficult to keep.  Read as much as you can about aquariums, especially the past forums for specifics about keeping crabs.  Keep asking questions, I for one will be happy to offer advice.

I'm looking at puffer fish now. a bit expensive but they are just so cute  Wink and funny when they puff if i ever see it puff. this weekend were having a yard sale I'm going too use money from that too help pay my mom is buying the tank, ill have too buy the rest (maybe). how difficult is it too keep puffer fish?

is it normal for people too ask the tank sellers too fill it up with water in front of them?

my mom said no salt water tanks as they are too expensive too keep and more difficult. for some reason i don't know. a crab is out of the picture right now, but for the future whats the minimum size tank too keep just one crab in?

Overall, most common types of puffer fish are easy to maintain in an aquarium, but to the best of my knowledge, they are all marine fish (saltwater).

I would never buy a second hand tank without being 100% certain that it does not leak.  If the seller balks, just walk away, you already have your answer.  And yes, I have purchased used tanks, and have made the seller prove the tank was intact.  They can fill the tank before you get there.  You have little recourse after the sale if the tank leaks.  The only time I took untested aquariums, was if they were offered for free (It occasionally happens), and then I tested the tank in my driveway, before it entered my home.  Some of those free tanks did leak too!....anybody need a terrarium?

Unfortunately, saltwater fishkeeping is more expensive than freshwater, thats for sure.  But I like to compare the difficulty of keeping Marine fish to learning to drive a car with a standard transmission vs. automatic.  It is more to know and more to do, but most people can master it.  Mistakes are more costly with marine tanks.  Only you can answer how much time and money you have to put into the hobby.

i was looking at red belly piranha's, they get up too 1 foot. a 55G tank i think could hold them I'm asking some people about it waiting for a responce. only $9-$15 and they don't need a allot of landscaping =] plues whats better then bragging and saying 'i have a piranha!', but my mom is taking me too two pet stores this Friday too look at other fish. I'm keeping an open mind about it though.

125blackfire,
In some states keeping piranhas is illegal.  As to your other questions, I'll be sending you a b-mail shortly.  It seems like we're wandering away from or crab topics.  More soon.........

There is a fantastic resource available to you called the Library.  They have plenty of information on aquariums and fish.  Get a card and learn to spend your time there.  They also have computers so you can log on and keep in touch Wink  Just think that when someone asks a question you can look it up and give us the answer right from what you read.  This will also increase your aptitude and spelling ability Grin Grin  Just because your dad and other relatives spell horribly doesn't mean you have to.  Break that yoke young man!!
