Everyone carried every Bio-wheel except the one I needed. So now all I really need is to give the tank a really good cleaning and let it set up for a night or so.
I'll have to wait a few weeks for Bianco's upgrade, when I have the money. Right now I'm paying very close attention to his tank, and he seems really happy. (They had him in a cup and a half of dingy blue water >.<). My 2 gallon is beautiful, it's a cylinder with a central under-gravel filter and an LED light system that lets me change the color of the light. He's got a plastic plant for the moment, but as soon as the tank settles in and develops some of that oh-so-helpful bacteria it needs, the plastic is GONE and I'm replacing it with one of the gorgeous live plants they have at PetsMart.
My PetsMart is incredible. We have a PetCo but it's kinda dirty and their selection is minimal, while PetsMart is full of high-end goodies and the staff are really passionate about the animals in the store, and the ones people bring from home. We've even got a grooming parlor and obedience school in the store! There's also a kennel room where they house cats from the local feline rescue for two weeks to help them get adopted, and there's almost always someone in the adoption room when I visit them. ^.^
