Well I tried to post the stories last night but apparently I wasn't signed in and once I logged back in everything was erased
So I will type it all up again today.
Lil, if I make a Journal I would love if you'd comment, makes me feel like I'm not just talking to myself hehe!
Rocket, thank you :) they are really nice tanks, I was deciding between mine and the Aqueon. I really the look of the mushroom now that it's all set up. I rinsed it in room temperature water for a couple minutes and it smelled a lot like plastic. But my mom had this good idea of putting it in boiling water (we have instant hot idk what to call it) for about an hour, and then put it in cold water for another hour. The smell is now 95% gone and I can only smell it on the inside that clearly looks like plastic. It's very faint and not a paint fragrance so I'm not at all worried.
