Definitely get the liquid test kit. I had been using the strips too and then realized their readings were way off even though they weren't expired.

I put Mr. Magic in last night, and he is thriving in his new space! I noticed within minutes of acclimating that his colors perked up; his blues and reds deepened, and his green has more of a glimmer than before in the unheated .5 gallon. He loves to flare at me when I come through the door and did a cute little dance when he saw me coming with the food container. I see little groups of bubbles floating around, but I think there is too much surface tension for a full nest to form. He is loving it though!

yeah Im pretty sure they are off b/c my tap water readings arent much diff than my tank water PLUS my buddy has the same tank set up at the same time and he didnt change the water for almost 3 wks (I finally went over there and did it for him) and his numbers were reading about the same as mine and I have been doing partial changes every few days for the last month so theres got to be something wrong with the strips

themountain, that wasn't very polite.

I think the tank is lovely, but I would watch out for the plastic plant because the sharp points may rip his fins.

Thanks 10asartin. I tested the plant before I put it in there. I didn't buy it personally, it came with the tank. I will definitely be updating the decor, and possible planting, once I have some extra money lying around. As well as getting a hood and couple of sponge filters. Just really tight on money right now. Much better than a .5 gal at least.

I highly recommend doing a planted tank. They cost a bit more to get a proper one going, but in the long run you'll have a beautiful tank that is very low maintenance.
