So yesterday we finally got our tank decor set up. Sam pressure washed the driftwood and the rocks. Then later in the day we made a visit to Petland where we picked up a plant called a Red Wendth and most importantly a test kit.
As far as liking Petland the fish there all seemed to be in good condition, but the guy who was helping us, (aka sort of annoying us) knew less about fish than I did. He tried to get me to buy something that would allow me to put fish in the tank and therefore give him a bigger sale. I then explained to him for the second time that I was waiting for my tank to cycle, which can't be sped up. He kind of looked at me in a confused way, and I said, "You know, the Nitrogen cycle?" He then agreed. Haha, poor guy. We also got a new thermometer from there.
We then headed to Walmart where I got some more Aquasafe and gravel. Walmart's fish conditions were deplorable. They actually downsized the tanks, and had so many fish crammed in them. It was awful. All the tanks had dead fish in them. DO NOT buy fish from Walmart! Well, I guess I'm tempted to save some from that torture, but I'm afraid I'll get some disease in my tank if I do.
ANYWAY, here is the result...
