I have an empty ten gallon tank and I would like to fill it with life. My ideas were to add 1 platy and 6 neon tetras. First off anyone who knows the around price please share it with me, I haven't been able to visit the pet store lately. For these fish the temperature should be 68 - 77 F, which is okay because I have a heater. I will need to get testers for pH and hardness but that shouldn't be hard. Can you get testers at Walmart, because my money is mostly for there, if not I will have to save up more?
This was recommended with that site that tells you most things you should look for, it helped a lot because normally when I look for fish types it takes hours to find fish that are compatible not to mention water type and stuff which is another thing that takes hours if your as unskilled with fish as me.

Anyone with any help, or things I should know please tell me. I now understand fully the cycling thing so that's off the list. After reading that link I understood fully about cycling, it seemed so hard on wiki. Thanksa guys you are awesome people and you have great tanks!
But I have to ask my father if I can do this, I'm sure if he's happy after a week I will be allowed now to behave. :]
