    I got a good reading on everything except the nitrates. I had a zero (or almost zero) reading on the ammonia, and the nitrites, but the nitrates were sky high for the longest time. However, I have a theory for this. This tank was setup and running some time ago. I drained it and moved it; didn't clean out the gravel, and left it sit empty for months before I filled it back up again. I put in a sponge filter from an established tank. Two weeks after setup with the nitrates still reading high, I added some Special Blend. About two weeks later the nitrates read below 10ppm. I even threw in a small bunch of moss and a small clump of java fern. I plan to add more live plants (currently artificial) when I get a better light on it.

    I appreciate all the knowledge and opinions. The beautiful angels are in their new tank (still a work in progress, as there are live plants to be added), however I think I'll just move the neon tetras to the 55 as to increase their numbers. Think I'll just put a couple of cories with the betta.
    Ten gallons are kind of boring, as its a bit difficult to do much with them. Aside from temporary quarantine use.

    Oh yeah! Sorry, I definitely meant to add that! I didn't mean for it to sound like that! Every cichlid had its own personality, you never know! That's crazy waylon! I see why you are not trusting of angelfish. That would traumatize me too!

    They are about four hours away from me. I've been getting my fish on my occasional trips to Eugene. I never ordered fish and had them shipped, but thinking about trying that. I just discovered aquabid.com. My husband is a bit worried about it.

    You guys should set aside a day and take a road trip, bring an empty cooler to carry fish home in, they'd be fine for 4 hours, even more

    I have used aquabid a couple times, just like Ebay its dependent on the seller-but I never had problems with it. I just find my stuff easier with TWS, or Rachael O' Leary, or Aquatic Arts or Han's aquatics, or Tannin Aquatics or other online sites; dependent on the fish/invert/plant/driftwood etc. I am looking for.

    Two 5.5g- Shrimp tanks; one with 4 chili rasbora & Bloody Mary and second with Blue Dream shrimp
    5.5g- Rescue female betta Lucky Star
    20L- Rescue betta Tony Stark and pygmy corys
    20L- Pygmy cory, 2 vampire/rock shrimp, ember tetras and female guppies

    So far I've done two hours (eugene). Never lost one from that. But, that fish store has really good fish. I don't have a fish retailer near me. Someone tried once, but the person they left in charge of their store abandoned it with all the animals after they took what they wanted from it. It was a mess. So wanting to visit the Wet Spot.
