Sheesh! Had I known that one simple fact I might have gone with live plants right away and saved me a ton of money and time. Not to mention high blood pressure from frustration. lol Cutting cleaning time down is a big thing.

I didn't get to purchase the stuff I wanted to today because Petco didn't have the stuff and they are gross so I refuse to shop there anymore but I did buy myself a small present. I got a Red Tail Shark. He is now swimming happily around the tank checking things out. Very cute little guy. I didn't get him at Petco

Check the profile on the shark. A few things to be aware of with tankmates.

It pays to find a good fish store (not a chain store) and make yourself known. They can be very helpful. Not so much advice (they may or may not be knowledgeable on this or that) but benefits like returning fish and merchandise.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Oh Oh, Is this another blunder? It says that they do not bite other fish but that they might chase. It says to not get other bottom feeders when you have a shark, which I won't. It also says that some are more shy then others and tend to hide. So far, that is how mine is. I will hope it stays more shy. It is already 4 1/2 inches long so it is not a tiny little one. Again, they said it would be likely to get along with the species I already have in the tank. I hope they were right this time. There is one store here that has said they would consider taking my fish if they don't work out, for store credit. They don't want the Tiger Barbs. (poor little unloved fish) ha ha
