I finally got it! It's all set up now too. I remembered I had $11 in store credit at my LFS, so I picked up a Wisteria plant and two of some type of Val. Don't know exactly which one, since they had at least three different kinds. I can't remember what this one is. :( Corkscrew, maybe?
I'm waiting for the tank temperature to get up to 80 before I start acclimating the fish. I managed to make my own divider, so hopefully it does its job and neither of them decide to jump it. They seemed pretty friendly towards each other when I had their tanks side by side. They'd watch each other sometimes, but never really acted like they wanted to get into the other's tank.
I baffled the filter too with a part of a water bottle and used a rubber band to hold it to the lid of the filter. :)
So here's what I got today:
10 gallon tank kit (tank, hood, filter, and some other stuff I don't plan on using)
Two 6500k 10 watt light bulbs (total of 20 watts, as recommended :D)
Report covers (for the divider binding)
Craft mesh (for the divider)
A bottle of Stress Coat (to help fix Patriot's torn tail)
I was really tempted to get a Zebra Nerite Snail or two, but I didn't have enough money. :( I might get some next time I'm at my LFS though. I'm going to get 12 ghost shrimp, but not until I get more plants. It's too bare, I think. They might get eaten again. D:
Picture time! I'll update when my fish are actually in the tank. :)
This is the whole tank. I love how bright it is!
This is Tiny Tina's half. She has the Vals.
And this is Patriot's half. He has the Wisteria.
