+1. When I bought my 55, it was a freshwater setup. Most of the stuff, like the rocks and decor, were garbage. But the one piece of decor was a large piece of lava rock, it is totally in there. If you are going to make purchases for your tank as freshwater as you get ready for sw, I'd make sure some of the stuff, as much as you can, be able to make the switch to save you money.

Yeah, I agree, every little bit will help out! There's always something you want or need and don't have the money for. Lol

Maybe I will just use my husbands idea about catching a bass or bluegill. Gather some rocks from the river and some driftwood... It will look nice.

Maybe. I think he'd rather catch it himself anyway.

Went to the river and got some rocks. I've cleaned and soaked the "bed" rocks. Now the larger display rocks are soaking.

Since this is temporarily a fresh water tank should unstop posting here and make a new freshwater thread? I'll miss posting here. I can update when I start buying saltwater stuff...

Ignore the floating driftwood... It'll get saturated eventually.

I seeded the filter with a piece of filter media from my betta tank. Got all my rocks clean. Just waiting for the water to clear up. Will get a background, castle decoration (the kids really want it), filters for the small filter, and a goldfish tomorrow. Let the cycling begin! Also going to get some glass tops if they are a good price at petco. Otherwise I'm ordering from amazon. Goodnight!

Oh- and spray painting the light fixture worked really well. It looks 1000 times better!
