Also, what I have to do is take him out of the tank and put him in something, like a big bowl or pot. I have to rinse out the tank and everything in it and take back the tank and exchange it at a store thats an hour away.. the whole process should take about 2-3 hours.. Im scared he will die!! should I buy one of those little plastic "critter cages"? and put him in that?
He seems happy in his new tank he has now, he just swims around and flares and covered the whole side in bubbles. but I know he will love a 5 gallon with a better filter!
Also, what filters do you guys use? I really cant find a good one and this is trhe reason Im taking back this tank! or if someone can explain to me how this sponge thing works. I have a sponge at my work (pet store) and its safe to use on the filter.
Sorry I keep asking questions I just dont wannahurt my fishie!!! =(
