    15-30 bucks, or go look at your LFS price and beat it by about 10 bucks

    yeah the goin' price for a GBTA at an LFS around here is $35. so you're lookin' for somewhere in the 20-25 dollar range.

    btw, did i mention my tank is barely 6 months old and he's been in there for about 3-4 months? :shock: :bounce:

    so since I've recently been feeding him a silverside about once a week, should I continue to feed each of them? Is there any kind of adjustment period I need to worry about when they first split or anything else I need to know?

    stress it out--give it a really big feeding, or put a rubber band around it. Should get it to split if it's pretty good size.
