So yesterday I got a filter, heater, some more gravel/rocks and SHAWN and I set it up! I couldn't believe it but Shawn set it up and he did great! I was impressed C;
First he set down the soil and leveled it then put the gravel rocks in
then we put the plants in and started filling it up then I added the heater and filter and such.
After it was filled and everything was okay I acclimated Ciroc AND HIS NEW BUDDY MAC THE GOLDEN APPLE SNAIL!
and he is soo cool and funny!!!
I do need to get more plants tomorrow though. A light too!
Right now I have the light from the 5 gallon. I got one from walmarts light section but it was too big -.-
I'm going to post pictures as soon as I get home! [If my internet isn't still down, last night it was acting up]
And I have some questions about the heater.
It's a tetracare for 10-20 gallons from walmart.
It says when the red light is on the heat is on but since I plugged it in it will be red one minute then it will shut off going back and forth, is the normal??
Also, it is'nt adjustable and the temp stay at 74 + 2 F
I have that one and the other one I had in the 5 gallon meant for 1-1 1/2 gallons and the temps are between 76 and 80
Is it okay if I keep both heaters in if they keep the temp stable?
