The world uses cm and degrees C. I have finally started to be able to relate one to the other but find it a bit difficult at times. We can't expect people all over the world to use units as odd as cubits and furlongs just because we haven't come into the modern world.

I have found that if I keep trying to relate, it sort of makes sense. The easiest thing for me is that I just know that 77F is 25C. Since that is so close to typical tropicals temperatures, it is easy to quickly get a feel for temperature when it is a number nearby. Just treat it as 2F equals 1C so 26C becomes 79F and 24C becomes 75 F. If you look up the real numbers, you will find those are closer to the real values than most of our thermometers can read anyway.

Which is why I'm happy that the internet converters are readily available. I doubt I'll ever be able to do the quick convert in my head Do you have a trick for converting cm to in??

I use online converters too. My brain cant do all that conversion stuff lol. So i went to the fish store in NJ. They had panda corys. I was gonna get the guy and say i want some,but some lady got him before i did. She took all of them! There was 12 in there. Shes like all my fish died so im replacing them all now. Im like can i have three of those? Shes like no. Im like 3 aint gonna matter. Shes like well it matters to me so no. What a bleep lol. I was pissed after that. But guy said they should get more wednesday so i can call and see if they got em. Doubt they hold them though. Im just gonna be mad if i go all the way over there again and someone beats me to it again! Hah. Other than that i checked out like 3 other pet stores. Petsmart and petco both had small otos. Are they compatible with bettas? So if i cant get my cories i might get an oto. If thats a good idea. I dunno.

Could you call them and ask them if they could hold them for you? That woman was a witch! She didn't need all those fish! She just didn't want someone else to have them. :(

I'm going on a heater hunt tomorrow myself. I was GIVEN a 2 and a half gallon tank this afternoon by a neighbor but the heater isn't a good one. I'm going to look for a Stealth 25 watt Visitherm.

Cool that should work fine. I had that in my 2.5 and 5.5 gallon tank,worked great no problems. Im still sticking with visi therm heaters l,so hopefully the 75 will do the job.
