    Thanks everyone. Tomorrow I am gonna add some corys with the TSS.

    I am thinking of driftwood and some plants... not sure yet though

    Well its almost 24 hours since I added prime, So ill go to LFS soon.

    I have my heater set to 76. But my thermometer is telling me 80! Should I just turn down the heater and go by what the thermometer says ( )?

    The tank should be around 78 for the fish right?

    Ok back from the LFS. Got 3 corys




    There is 2 bigger ones and a smaller one. Talk about hard to get a picture! The two bigger ones swim around together for awhile then just sit together on the bottom of the tank. Could they be mates? They are all so cute.
