What type of a setup are you planning on?
I dunno.. after posting on here this morning my boyfriend and I went to the pet store this afternoon I am actually setting up the tank right now.. feel a little overwhelmed but i think I`m getting it.
We went with stones my boyfriend liked them better and since he was paying lol.
I bought a 5g tank with a cave sort of thing and one plant that he can rest on.
We didn`t get a heater cuz they were out of stock and we are going to be hitting another store tomorrow, lucky for him my apartment is over 80`cuz they haven`t turned on the ac yet.
Fingers crossed that I have done everything right so far! Wouldn`t of been able to do half of it with out the help of everyone on here!!
