This weekend if all goes well, I am getting my new tank. If I have to buy it new at petsmart it will probably be a 20g. I am picking up some new plants for it and plan on using organic soil on the bottom capped with gravel. I have a question, can I get my frogs on the same day?

If I get a 20g I would like to have 3 or 4 ADF. The plan is to set it up as a riparium so the tank will only be 3/4 full and heavily planted in the water as well as the non-aquatic plants. If it sets well I would love to add a trio of gouramis to it.

What are the some plants which don't need co2?

How quickly should the plants take to the soil?

How long will it take for the soil to settle in the water?

What's the difference in LED and CFL lighting? Because I know CFL are good but I'm not sure at all about LED and I don't know what type of hood I am getting.

If the ADF jump out and get on the riparium plants (out of water), how long will they be okay before they jump back in water?

Will a trio of blue gourami's be an okay match depending on their personalities? Or should I wait and just put FernBack in there?

What about this tank and the perks in it?

I'm glad there are no PetCo's in Canada! If the USA had won the hockey game today I'd probably feel differently abut that though. :-D Kidding of course, I love Canada, good luck Sunday going for gold.

Nope, no petco's. Frankly, I am glad for that. We only have PetSmart and Pets Unlimited in Newfoundland and PU is atrocious in its care for animals and are notorious for hiring morons. And they have not been the same since the public lobbied and got puppy mill dogs taken out of their store, the owners are rude and lie to people.
Thanks! We're goin' for GOLD!!

Back on topic, I don't know if I'll be able to start my riparium this week because we're getting snow and then freezing rain. Today was the only day I could go :<
