Thank you for your advice! I will get some live plants as soon as I can and put those in. I guess I read about cycling wrong and read that live plants messed with your readings. Thanks for setting me straight!
What plants would you suggest for a complete aquarium newbie? I don't have a green thumb at all, so I like easy to maintain/hard to kill plants! lol That is my 3 year old son, Luke, admiring the tank. He keeps asking where the fish are. I have a 10 gallon with 3 bettas (all divided of course) that he absolutely loves to watch. I have also already started glancing around craigslist for a 55 gallon for the living room so I can get some Angels or Discus, I think they are beautiful. I am finding this aquarium hobby to be VERY addicting. This site is awesome, I am already learning so much. Thanks again!
