haha i actually got it at petco, there was a seperate back part to the ship also but my tank is too small i think for both. It cost 50 dollars but theres a lot of hiding room which i really liked and it didnt look to tacky to me. I still would like to get something else to provide more hiding spaces just in case one fish claims the ship but im worries about overcrowding it

I actually really like that ship.

I like slate caves myself, you can make some nice looking ones with some patience and aquarium silicone.

I've found this to be a great resource:

Just click on your state, and it will give a listing of fish stores people have added to their database along with comments. I've found a bunch of really good fish stores I had no clue existed from this directory.

so its been u a week and 2 days since i set my tank up. I opted to cycle my tank with fish, i got 2 albino tiger barbs and a blood parrot. During the middle of the week my tank started to get cloudy. Thursday morning i woke up to find my 2 barbs had died :( but my blood parrot has been doing very well. Ive done 3 small water changes and have been testing my water. My ammonia level has been at 0, ph 7.0, and both nitrite and nitrate at 0. My tank still remains cloudy so im just trying to remain patient. Anybody have any suggestions / advice ?

well,who ever told you to cycle your tank with those fish
is a wally. !!
you are having a bacteria bloom in the tank at the moment,
it will clear.
in my honest opinion take the fish back to the pet store,
and if you really wish to cycle the tank with fish,then pick
black widow tetra,platys,danios.
