An update, I won't be getting fish until the end of March.
We will be closed at work from March 1-23, so I will be going to North Carolina to see my folks. I'm not going to set up a new tank for a month and then be gone for two weeks, especially with having to regulate pH and GH as I have never done this. I sure don't want to have to worry while I'm on vacation.
Otherwise, days off where something is actually open, and it isn't 20 below zero are coming, I'll look for the rest of the things I need. The Packers are out now, that will also help my productivity. Pictures soon once there is something new to see.
Wouldn't you like to beside the seaside?
