    I personally use the python on my 10g, but its also next to my 55. I like it b/c it leaves options for more / bigger tank in the future

    But you can add the dechlor into the 50% left in the tank right before you start to refill the tank (i actually pour it into the incoming stream so it mixes it well)

    I agree for a 55 gallon but $40 when he only has a 10 gallon seems like more money to spend than necessary. He could have gotten the hand held one for $5-8.

    True, that is most likely what is gonna end up happening...

    Could be a good hobby to start together, each have tanks of your favorite fish, good bonding stuff

    I once intercepted someone in a fish store - she had a 10gal tank kit in one arm and had an employee ready to bag some fish for her. I said to her - you can't just buy a tank and plunk fish into it - they will probably die within 24hrs. I told her to google "cycling a fish tank" because I was new to this site & couldn't remember the name of it.

    Some fish store employees are good & knowledgable - will advise on buying water conditioner, advise on proper filter size, tell you if a fish will get too large for the tank you're buying...but...most employees are there to bag fish & sell you things.

    You will learn just like all of us did - hopefully with few fish deaths and you'll be a success story! : )
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    Thanks so much...experience is what we need to succeed in our first try at having fish as new pets....and I will appreciate all comments and suggestions here on this thread....

    BTW, did our first 50% cycle today and all is well so far...the water even looks a bit clearer!...to clarify about our population as of now, we have four fish (2 mollies and 2 "plattys" (sp?) and 2 snails
