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.
