I also bought an Aquatop PFE-1 HOB filter and a Hydor Theo 25W heater from amazon.ca yesterday.
I will buy a hood for this tank to replace the desk lamp when I'm done my finals.

In other news, my girlfriend and my roommates witnessed a hawk swoop down and grab a squirrel off a tree. I feel really left out.

I wouldn't take it too hard. Ghost shrimp don't usually last because of the way they are shipped and handled.

BAMA AGAIN!!!

Thanks for the condolences. I'm actually happy that 3 or 4 of 10 are still alive. I didn't expect so many to make it for this long.
