It will make thiungs easier if you find out your local water parameters before you decide on fish.

As i sed in some of my other post im not sure what my water parameters are but as far as i know the water is the same at my lfs and at home. Also all the water that they use ( the water that has been de -chlorined and stuff?) You can get in tubs for free which is what im going to use probably.

That's a sweet birthday gift. Congrats.!!

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Sounds like a pretty awesome birthday present to me. You are a lucky boy! I can't wait to see your tank once you have it all set up. Are you going to have real plants? If so, what kind?
