I certainly will!!!! I feel like a little kid, I'm so excited about it! lol I'm spoiling this fish rotten and I don't even wanna keep tabs on how much I'm spending because I'd probably be in a state of shock at how much $5,$10,$20 here and there have added up to by now!
I took a ride to Petco tonight and decided to go with the black gravel...just seems easier to me for some reason... Picked him up one of those floating logs since he'll be losing his favorite rest spot under the filter by either running it or doing away with it all together, a leaf hammock (already removed the metal wire -thanks for the heads up- love this forum!) Had a heck of a time picking out nice ornaments though....what the heck's up with all those sharp edges on them?!!!! Do they want to filet the fish or what?
Ordered my plants form Mikeswetpets and got Anacharis, Anubias Nana, Java Fern and a Cryptocoryne Lutea (hope I didn't overdo it for a first timer :/). Also ordered some Flourish and...I can't wait til I can start setting up!
One more question. QTing the plants...uh... I just put them in regular untreated tap water for two weeks and do water changes....or...is less time OK if I don't notice any parasites? Anything in particular I should watch out for other than that? I'm afraid I'll kill 'em before they make it to the tank but needless to say I'm more worried about harming my fish. I read somewhere on here that Mikeswetpets treats them for snails so I hope at least that won't be a problem...:S
