Well, I'm back in the province, I've bought my tank, need a few more items, some accessories, and to figure out what kind of light bulb I need.
Tomorrow I go off in search of silica sand (at least that is what I believe it is called) and to poke over the new arrival of aquatic plants!
Isn't she a beaute? Tank, stand, light and hood, and oh so many accessories all for 150. Thank you kijiji. Oh, and a bundle of live plants... that have been sitting in a bag for a few days so I have to open them up now while I'm setting up the tank.
And lots of accessories! (I'm not sure about what ones I'll need besides the filter and a heater). Well new heater 25W for 33gal? Doesn't sound like a good idea.
I wish I could share pictures of the stock I was drooling over. Dragonscales, with half moon parents. All have been living together for a while in another 33 gal, I think I'm going to have a good start!
I will post updates as I get more done, and of course, lots of pic spam when there are girlies! I'm starting out with 5 girls, plan to go up to 10. And have a school of 6 panda cories (hence the sand). Haven't decided on anything else, save a few shrimp (no idea if they will be anymore than a snack, so starting with a few ghosties).
Just wanted to share the exciting transformation!
