I had $35 spare, so I went on Amazon and bought some new goodies. This is all for my Fluval Flora tank which I'm getting in July for my birthday.
I got a Tetra Whisper 10 gallon air pump. I need this to power my next item. It was only $7.00 and had free shipping. This is a great deal considering this air pump is around $15 at PetSmart.
I also got an Elite sponge filter. I only use sponge filters because they will not get my fishes' tails caught or suck in shrimp. They are pretty efficient and cheap, I only paid $6. Otherwise, you would pay about $10 to $15 for any other filter.
I got some Hikari Betta Bio-Gold. My fish is going to be spoiled, hes only going to have the very best. This will insure great nutrition and long, happy life. I've heard how good Hikari food is, so I swapped out my Omega One flakes for some of this.
The last thing I got was an API Master Test Kit. This is essential for my betta tank and goldfish tank. This is my first test kit, and I really need this because my goldfishes' water has been unmonitored in nitrates. I've just been changing about 5 or 6 gallons out of their 29 gallon tank every 7 days.
I've bought these items to insure great life for my soon to be betta. The only thing I have to buy next is my Hydor Theo heater and a clip on light to have a nice planted tank. Also can someone tell me at how many nitrates I should do a water change?
