I don't have a heater or a filter, yet, I might not wait til Friday to get a new tank with all the stuff. When I get the new tank, should I put some of that water he's in? or should I put all new water in?

New water ,none of the water that fish is in goes in the tank. Use dechlorinator for new water at every water change.

Yes, dechlorinator is the same thing as water conditioner. If its uncycled, I have no idea how often you should change the water.

Sounds like he's jealous. lol We do have a tendency to spend money on our fish! lol I don't know how much I spent last week on 1 one gallon,1 2 1/2 gallon critter keeper, one heater and a whole bunch of fake plants. Jaden's favorite plant came apart and I've been trying to find one that he will like as well. I think he's doing ok with what I have in there now. I haven't heard him complain yet. lol
