Awwww Sakura! Your little guy is adorable. I hope he gets better.

Hi everyone! I somewhat set up my 10 gal tank. I was wondering would it be okay to add my live plants in a few days? I just ordered them. Also I just realized the lid of the tank has marks to cut openings to fit the filter and heater. So right now the lid does not fit. :( Wondering if I should of just gotten a 5 gal instead. Hmmmmmm.

RedRaz, what do you mean the lid doesn't fit because of the cutouts? *is confused*

Yes, it's usually perfectly okay to add your plants right away. The only time you might not want to is if you have a planted setup already and you don't want to contaminate it with snails and algae. This I learned the hard way. But for you, yup, no need to quarantine.

Kinetic, aww. I'm sorry about your back. Have you tried acupuncture/pressure? Hehe, just watched an episode of Invisible Man last night about acupuncture. Darien threw his back out and went to a bad acupuncturist who used electromagnetic needles to manipulate him into stealing Chinese artifacts.

Sakura8 yeah the cut outs should of been cut out, lol! It says we need a saw. EEeeeeeK! So no lid until my hubs can cut it.

Okay I gotcha. ;) I should get my plants soon.

I'm not sure why I am not as excited as I thought I would be with the 10 gal. Maybe when it is more complete I would feel that excitement. Or could be I'm just tired, lol!
