-smiles big- You'll Never Guess What I Got For Christmas!!
For Christmas, Today, I got The 20 gallon tank! Yes, its true! It's finally In My Possession! However, the side of the tank is shattered, so were taking it back to get a replacement. Any ideas on plants? Heaters? I know you have to cycle it, but how do you do that? Where do I get Test Strips?, and... sadly... my mom is banning more fish.. I am going to add up on my tetras and Guppies, however, to make them more sociable. Here's what the box says about the tank:: Comes With: -Whisper 10-30 Internal Filter with cartridges. -The Hood w/light ---the lights are this::15watts, T10(<--what does this mean?) and 120volts. how long should I leave it on for the day? I usually turn off the fish lights in the night, so when would i turn it on and off. I am planning to get a Tetra 10-20 Aquarium Heater also. What should I set that at to keep my tank at a steady 78degrees? Can I have a stick on thermomiter, or do I need one with a string? My Betta Fish is going into my 1.5 Gallon, and I have a Whisper 1-3gallons in there currently. Is that too strong for a betta fish? What filters would you reccomend? Heaters are going to be purchased, and what would you say about the heaters? What kinds of Heaters do you reccomend, or preferr. I am going to go along with the answers to the first thermomiter and buy two of the same kind that you reccomend. Thank You for Reading and for Your Patience and Advice. GCM
