I'm gonna be moving my fish into her new 5.5 gal. tank next weekend. Got the tank, heater, and gravel. Will be picking up some silk plants and a better thermometer in the next day or two. I'm gonna use a coffee cup and a piece of PVC pipe as temporary decor til more funds become available and I figure how I want to decorate. ( thinking maybe a Viking theme!) Anyway, any special instructions on preparing the items before putting them in the tank other than a thorough rinse with plain water? Everything's brand new.
