Finally, I have had him for well over a week. I was keeping him at home in a QT tank while I waited for my tank at work to finish cycling. Finally I got the readings I felt comfortable with yesterday. I had to run out and buy a new heater because the pre-set heater I was using sucked. I wanted 80 degrees stable so I had to pay for an adjustable.
He seems really happy. Every time I would turn to check on him he has been swimming around happily.
The tank is a 3 gallon all glass Picotope. All the plants are real down to the mini marimo moss balls.
Don't pay mind to the pH or the ammonia alerts in the back. Both levels are fine. I have an API that I use on the tank. The iPhone does not have a flash and it looks much darker than it really is. Plus his little plastic tank cover has a film on it still which darkens it even more.
