got it all!!
sunday night i went out and bought all i need for my tank.
i got a five gal tank, heater, filter, gravle, two live plants, rock decor, water conditioner, food, test stips, etc.
i set everything up and let it run.
i tested my water and its betta safe. my nitrate, nitrite, hardness, alkalinity, and ph is all right already.
in 4 days to a week i am wanting to get my fishes.
i am thinking a betta, a snail, and some white clouds, or neon tetras.
my filters current IS strong and i know thats not good for bettas. i have a few ideas to lessen the current. i think i will but a natural sponge in there to slow the current and put long plants in front of it to block the current.
the tank didnt come with a hood or nothing. the filter and heater sticks out so far that i will have to make my own lid and cut holes where everything will fit. i think i am going to get some wire mesh or hardware cloth and see how that is for making a lid.
YAY for me. it feels so good to see my tank up and working.
i hope i can find a crown tail betta (cross your fingers for me!)
i also have some hair nets from work. i bet i can rig something up with those as a lid.
it would be safer than GALVANIZED wire mesh.....
