Happy New Year!
I'm one confussed Mama!! Grandma (my Mom) gave my 9 year old and 5 year old really "cute" 2 gallon tanks for x-mas. ( I really believe she is getting back at me for something I put her through in my teen years hahaha!) Anyhow, I've been to Petsmart and lurking around this site for answers........and it's made me more confussed then I was.
This is a "freshwater" 2 gallon fish tank kit. It came with a pump, but no heater and this is where all my ?'s start.
So far we have set up the one tank last night. I purchased the water conditioner for the water. We have purchased two "corkscrew" plants from Petsmart and placed them in the tank. The water looks good still.........NO FISHIES yet!
I want to put a fish, frog or snail in the tank that wont be a ton of work. We already have 2-cats, 2 Pugs, 2 daughters and a hubby!! heehee
Could you please please please share with us what would be a good choice for our tank? Also, we are very unclear about this "cycling" issue.........and if we should or shouldn't get a heater. We've heard at PS we should........and another pet store we shouldn't in that small of a tank it would boil the fishies.
Thank you for taking the time to answer all my silly questions, but I want to make sure I dont kill the fishies the first day we get the home.....we are very much pet lovers
Any suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated!!
