One of the 5.5s looks brand new, as does the filter and the other accessories that came with it. The heater looked new too, but it was the one under recall.
I put the other two down in the basement. I'll reseal the lid of the 10 gallon in the near future when I have nothing better to do. I think the other 5.5 is fine, just needs a good cleaning.
I kept the nice 5.5 gallon in the kitchen. Next time i'm at the LFS, probably Monday, I'll grab some substrate, filter media and a heater.
Charlie says he wants an Orange fish. He always says Orange. He knows that tank is his and is impatient to put water in it. I would have grabbed all the stuff today, but I was planning on getting the 20 and the 5.5 was the furthest thing from my mind.
So I guess you cycle a Betta tank by sticking a Betta in it? Stupid Bettas.
I did 4 partial water changes on my Silver Dollar tank, between Thursday Oct 25 and Fri Nov 2 (yesterday). Thursday, Sunday, Tuesday, and Friday, because my nitrates had skyrocketed to 80 ppm. They're back to normal now. Don't know what caused them to jump like that.
