New 10 gal.

Hello, I have a 10 gallon tank with 1 angel fish,1 black skirt tetras and 2 ghost shrimp. I don't have ANY decorations in it. I'm going to get some soon. But i just wanted to know how i should go about putting the decorations in the take? Should i do it when i'm changing 25% of the water, Do i add anything to make it safe for the tank, Do i need to rinse it off before i put it in the tank? I'm just confused with all this stuff. 1 other question...When i change 25% of the water every 2 weeks should i add anything to make the water safe?

you should be using something to remove the chlorine and metals when you add new water..........very important........
I use Tetra AquaSafe.......

I always add the dechlorinator to the fresh water before I add it to the tank. I use Tetra AquaSafe too.

As far as fake plants and decor just a quick rinse off should be fine as long as the decor is made for aquariums.

You can add the decorations and plants whenever is convenient for you. Might be easier when the water level is lower. I use API Stress Coat Fish and Tap water conditioner.

An angelfish will get far too large for your 10 gallon. As a juvenile it may be all right, but it will quickly outgrow the tank. They get big, fast.

good luck.
