Sounds great! Add in the water, the water conditioner you have already and it will be all set for a fish! Just keep an eye on the preset heaters, they can either not heat enough, or too much. So keep an eye on it. Can't wait to see pics of it and when you get your new guy!

The Tank

A few coments and questions: The green plant has a lot of bubbles, you cant tell from the pick but it does, does that matter? With the dechlorinate, do i just add it? is there mixing involved or just pour? last of all... HOW DOES IT LOOK?

Looks awesome! :D
The bubbles will go away. I think it's from the gravel, but there's no need to worry :)
Make sure you read the directions on the dechlor. and add the proper amount. If you need help, just tell us what it says to do and we can help you. :)
Add the heater too! See how much the water heats up, just so you know how hot it gets.

just put it in, it says to have it totally submerged, but by doing so a bit of the wire at the top of the heater is in the water, is this ok?

Yup! Sounds right! ^^ You can actually have the top exposed if you're worried about it, it'll still heat up just fine. :)

Well, the heater is in, its supposed to make water 78F, but its doing what it said, where it gets to desired temperature then turns off and on to maintain it. It's doing that but the thermometer read 72 still, i stuck in another to make sure and it reads 73... so aggravating
