Thank you OFL! That information was exactly what I was looking for as well as some extras that are always appreciated.
I don't have my 10g tank fully set-up yet. Water has been conditioned and tested, ammonia and nitrates are at 0ppm. I have not put my live plants in yet. Should I turn the filter and heater on for a day and then put the plants in for a couple days, and then finally add Fred in?
As for plants, there are 4: a moss ball, an anubias plant, a plant that petco calls a betta plant, and another low-lying large-leaf plant. Sorry I don't have all the names, I got overly excited when I was getting everything to set-up my tank. Oh, and I have a small piece of driftwood.
I have API testers for ammonia, nitrate, and pH. Also, heater, lamp, thermometer, and filter.
Fred appreciates your help :) as do I.
