    Yeah! i came home with the 5g after work LOL I got the following:

    1 5g glass tank (110$)
    1 ELITE hush 5g (167$)
    1 75W heater (110$) (they had no 50W)
    a Huge Bag of gravel (30)
    1 thermometer (17)
    ______________________________________
    TOTAL----------------- ALOT more than my budget

    but the LFS gave me a discount and i brought it home for a LOT less :)

    As soon as i got home i began washing the gravel (it took forever) then i filled up the tank and installed the Filter. Man, the sound is so peaceful (there's no sound at all ;)) and then the heater. Its working pretty well, its been running for about 30mins and clearing up. I'll add the lucky betta girl tomorrow ;)

    I'm so excited!

    I just noticed i dont have MTS... i have NTS.... lol i love the look of new tanks :giggle: im up to 4 tanks now...

    My next plans are to upgrade both filters ( the one in the 10g to a stingray 10 and the one in my 35 to who knows what) then i'll use the filter in the 10g and use it in the 2.5. Then i'll get a heater for that tank and rescue another poor lil betta.

    Congrats on the new tank but OMG...are those the prices in Mexico for aquarium supplies??? That's sooooo expensive. Aren't you better off ordering from the states (or canada) and paying for shipping? You are getting ripped off!!!

    LOL those are in pesos. Basically every 12 pesos is a US dollar. The chances of the stuff i order online getting to me are very slim, unfortunately my mailing system goes through your mail before they deliver it, besides, they would probably break it anyway LOL

    I am better off buying my stuff separately. the reason most things are so expensive is because they are imported, and to be honest i'd rather have good trusty equipment thatn a japanese brand i've never heard of LOL

    Tony, YAY!!!! We will wait for pics and glad to hear it;s all going well. I moved one of mine at the weekend, and it was great watching him explore a new tank (took your advice about what you did with clayton as my Mars was very similar in the way he was acting, and when I moved him, he did seem to perk up, so thanks for the idea).
    Cant wait to see the pics, enjoy vacations!
