Okay, just got back from Petco, and the test results seem to be not great, but not terrible?
Ammonia: 0.5 ppm
Nitrate: 0 ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
I bought Prime as a water conditioner as suggested by Adastra and a thermometer; the temp is sitting steady at 81 degrees F. He seemed to like the thermometer
. Can I just measure Prime directly into the bowl with Brooklyn still in it? Do I still have to age the water first?
We're using a washed out yogurt cup as a temporary cave until we can get him something better (since JKfish said food safe stuff was OK).
I also bought a silk plant, since Petco said that they'd be out of Java moss until Thursday, but I'm a little worried because it seems really cheaply made ... with plastic bits sticking out and falling off . I'm afraid Brooklyn will eat the falling-off plastic parts. Does anyone have suggestions for other (not too expensive) plants?
Any feedback would be appreciated!
