You'll probably get the tank tomorrow. Will this be their permanent home?

Yah i should according to ups tracking lol. Well maybe...haha... I still waiting on my 10 gallon to cycle,which is taking forever. Cory fish need a cycled tank cause they dont handle the cycle process very well at all. Bettas are pretty hardy and can,but they are too delicate. So that will be their home until the 10 cycles...if it ever does lol...i figure might as well give them more room since it could be awhile before its done...its been 2 weeks since Fishy has been set up in the 10,so could be maybe another 4 weeks or so for the cycle. Or longer from what i read. Also if Fishy doesnt accept them,they will have a good sized permanent home already...

Haha yeah. Im half way to crazy waiting on this dang thing. Thats why i switched Fishy to a 10 cause people said it was easier to cycle lol. Still takes long time to do it....one of these days itll be done....course i did some searching online and it took some people many months to cycle...urgh...lol! So im thinking maybe 8 weeks total to cycle...I hope...they say 6 is the norm but my luck it wont work that way...so what 6 more weeks??? Lol...by that time i wont wanna switch my cories over haha...I dunno...What did i get myself into! hehe.

Yeah, it IS worth it but I'm too lazy to go through the process of daily water changes and testing parameters. lol

Haha i hear ya. I just changed the stooges water. I tested it and woh was it high! Man i think their tank will cycle before Fishys lol. Hmm....So i planned to do like a 50% but ended up doing like an 80% (that lil gravel vac sucks fast!!). Now the stooges are like insane. Swimming all over and checking everything out. Guess i gotta do wc's like every day on them. Thatd be a hoot if they cycled long before fishy does...heh...i put an extra sponge filter in fishys tank, i think ill put the other extra one in theirs just in case they got done first...lol....

I guess it just looks bigger in person. lol I'm sure they'll love their new home, once it's set up and cycled. Did it come with the heater and filter or did you have to get those seperately?
