Okay, so I'm a sucker and I couldnt resist upgrading.
I had a 2.5er before, which was really handy and easy to clean/maintain and now I've gone and gotten a 5.5 gallon tank...and wondering what I've gotten myself into, haha~
I can see myself calmly removing the fish, setting him aside, and proceeding to trip/dump this thing all over myself and my nice carpets.
Fortunately reading various threads on all your awesome water changing strategies has helped. ;D Here's hoping for the best.
The tank has a filter, heater, thermometer, and a nice light. :D Yay.
I tested the PH before I put him in.
I dont even know if I needed to do that, but I did it anyway...lol.
He is swimming around flaring at everything, showing all the plants who is boss. I hope he is happy and not stressed out~~ /fuss!
Any tips from you veterans would always be welcome and awesome! Thanks. <3
