I am actually planning on coating the chicken wire with something to prevent the gaps being accessible to my future fish. But I really do appreciate the help! It was kind of an off the top of my head kind of idea, but as I go along I shall be looking at other materials.

:D I don't know about Prime (I'm also in Canada) I use Nutrafin (I think) which is what the stores use. I bought it with my first fish bc they were using it and I didn't want to change it too abruptly. I also have Tetra in a yellow bottle but I feel like I'm pouring vegetable oil in the water with each use!! It's so thick!!

Have you tried Petcetera? They have a store in each province except Quebec. WHy must you always be so difficult and different, Quebec? V_V Bleh.

Anywho, I am sure you can order Prime online. I would recommend it over all other conditioners just because it saved my Fabio's life. Stupid Champlain Lake water was killing the poor guy....

Well I got most of the rest of the stuff, no decorations i.e. plants or hiding spots. They were outside of my budget so I'm going to see what I have around my house.

Yes I did, my Fiance has one with a white/red body with really bright red fins named Rocket, and since mine's a darker blue, with lighter blue going to his fins, he reminds me of a comet with its ice tail shooting through space.

So meet Comet!

He's now in his tank, he's just adjusting now. I put a mug in there to see if he'd like it, and he's yet to go near it xD
