Ok so plants are a go... yay! Now I have something to do :]
Thanks for the input
Sorry didn't know what you know or don't know so I just gave you the whole run down
Give it like a few days to see how the current fish are gonna do and your water parameters. Then get yourself some more Cory for Xmas, give it another few days, make sure all is good. then add some Minnow or what you like and again give a few days. Then maybe sometime Feb finish off the Cardinals.
Sorry if I mislead you, I don't mean to not stock any fish at all right now, just to not stock the Cardinals until the tank is a lil more established, but the other stock up bit by bit with some days in between to see how it's developing.

Has anyone given you this link yet? Sweet Aquatics they have quite a nice plant selection and good prices and free shipping at like $40-50. I love their quality so I can only recommend them.

Don't be sorry, I appreciate all info :] and will def hold back on the cardinals for now. Its so hard not to get ahead of things out of impatience to have everything complete, lol. I think I shall just let all my new fish get accustomed for now (better safe than sorry), now that I know I can devote sometime to my gardening haha. I shall check out your plant link too.

I guess that's all part of the hobby... If there wasn't always something to have to wait for, where's the excitement? It could get rather boring..

No my insurance Agent said I shouldn't use shelf any more but stands...No I had 6 tanks, needed to leave them behind and give them up for the move. Now I have set up 3 new one's here and am fixing to work on no 4 & 5 before Christmas so that makes the 10th set up - that's asking for a fishy-party ain't it?

Well clearly...you're a guy Hawkin...its all on HOW you talk about this....See I bought my hubby a 8ft Projector & Screen and a Xbox for his b-day....now if he's not working he's so busy & I can set up tanks and he won't say nothing since I supported him do "his" thing
Since I don't have enough room to set up all the tanks I want...I brought up the discussion to add on to the house for a "gaming room" for him (you know the whole male yaddy ya stuff) ....with a room next door for my tanks

Its just really all about how you talk to 1 another

Yeah I'm a guy. Fish room is the same as the game room. The fish like watching me play xbox... so does my 3 yr old. Wife... not so much.

Oh well... I'll need to find my own ammunition.
