Forgive my noobishness! And thanks so much for the advice and corrections!
Aquarium salt, got it! I like the idea of using the glass jar too, we have a ton of extras right now! We bought a huge amount to make pear butter from our pear tree..Bought too many, I'm sure I can swipe one!
I think I will start out buying a petco fish, but for future purchases I'd be interested in ordering online or from a breeder.. But I DO want to make sure I get a healthy fish, so I'm researching as much as I can for picking one that is healthy and happy!
That tank is a SWEET deal!
25 watt tank heater..like http://www.amazon.com/Hagen-Aquarium.../dp/B0002AQF84
I am SO okay with buying feeders online! I already do that anyway, so I'll add it to my list of purchases! Will help with the shipping costs too if I can make the most of the box they send!
Ok so NO MELAFIX! Got it!
haha, so many of the rules are backwards from what I'm used to with my reptiles! I understand why you would want frozen though, parasites are very bad thing! But it will be nice not to have to gut-load anything new though! :)
The pantyhose trick sounds like a BRILLIANT idea, thanks for that advice!
