Sweet, that's not a bad price. I didn't know sponge filters were so cheap! I'll probably convert when I get much more live plants?? Don't I need the stronger filter for now since I have barely any plants? Minus the live plants, which I'll add slowly later on, it seems pretty cheap to convert.
I'll buy the test kit probably online I might possibly have a petsmart gift card somewhere.
I ended up buying a GE daylight T12 20W 6500k flourescent bulb... I can't tell if its compact flourescent or not??
I'll attach a picture of the box.
Also I find the light very... ugly... It's not as white as my old light was... My tank almost looks tented green, it's very odd. It doesn't look as bright as I had expected it to be. I'm not really happy with the coloring though... totally does not bring out the fish's color so idk... :/
I bought some Aponogeton Bulbs to see how they do. :p I bought them before when I didn't know about proper lighting and stuff and they sprouted and looked ok. :) Maybe now they'll grow and flourish! :D
Blah come to think of it... it's not a compact flourescent unless they just don't label it. :/ I'll prolly end up back at walmart?
Edit: ugg there was something I was gonna say then forgot. bahhh.
Edit Again: Oh, I think I was gonna say I got a T12 cus I couldn't find a T8 with 6500K. Alsooo I was gonna ask does the government have a website that can tell me the water PH and hardness from local water?
