So I noticed yesterday that Midnight still didn't move around very often, and would always stay close to the little fake tree that his 1/2 gallon tank brought. After much thinking, I decided to sell some of my Xbox games, and went off to Walmart to look for a tank. I was originally going to buy a Hawkeye 5 gallon, but they were out. So I bought a Tetra 5 Gal, includes light and a filter system.
I then went off to my local Petstore to look for a inexpensive heater system, and live plants. Well, I ended up buying a Elite thermostatic Heater (Which I bought it last night Jan.11, and I woke up this morning to find it busted and with some black dirt looking substance inside, which I have no idea where it came from). Never going back to that Petstore, despite that being where I purchased Midnight from! They didn't have live plants, but a worker told me to take a drive to Beverly's Pet Store. At first I didn't want to go, but my girlfriend convinced me to take the drive. So we went there, and as soon as I walked in, my jaw dropped. THE BEST STORE I"VE YET TO SEE!
I spoke to various workers, and they all knew their stuff. I young man helped me out, sold me One live plant. I wanted a few more, but he told me to try one first, and see how it goes, then come back for more. I bought some green gravel for the tank, and a Spongebob Squarepants pineapple house for him to hide in.
He looks HAPPY! In his 1/2 gallon tank, he barely moved, even when would I dip my fingers around. Now he loves swimming through the tank! I'm very happy for him.
I'm keeping a constant watch on the water temperature, with a submersible stick on thermometer I purchased. I won't be able to buy another heater until the weekend, and I'll make sure to buy a fully submersible one, and one that will last more then a day!
