I love when I get new fish stuff to play with LOL.
Today I went to the thrift store and picked up a 3-5gallon tank (not quite sure how big it is yet) and my eco-complete!!!!!
I got the tank for $8!!!! This is going to be Ember's new home when he comes to live with me
. It doesn't have a light, filter, or heater yet but I'm working on it. They seemed to have a run on heaters at petsmart today and I couldn't find a filter that was the right size. There was a 3gal one and a 10-20 gal... nothing for 5ish gallons
... I'll probably order a sea deco art nano filter for it. It will have the cycled gravel from my 10 gal because my 10 gal is getting the eco complete for its upcoming plants!
So today I'm cleaning the new tank, taking EVERYTHING out of my 10 gal and siliconing the divider in place. And on monday (because the silicon needs 48 hours to dry) I'm putting the eco-complete, decor, and fish/snails back in. Busy weekend!
The only draw back to the new tank is the hood was siliconed on
so if anyone knows a way to get it off I would be really greatful. The tank is still useable but just hard to get in/out of.
And the best news of all. A member of my betta association has agreed to give me a few plants for my tank when I meet up with him at a meeting in march!!!!
