Thanks everyone for the nice welcome and birthday wishes! Yes, we do kind of have a zoo, but four of the birds and two of the dogs are rescue animals. Not that they are any less of a joy to us, simply that things have a way of find me
Zagz I appriecate the direct links to the articles. The gal
I got the tank from has several. I'll bet she would let me have some established gravel. (thought for later, how come your AG shows up and the site keeps telling me the link to my tiny cockatoo pic says "link invalid" I really do know how to link photos?)
Purrbox, I very much appreciate the concern about the dresser, but I really thought this one out. It's long rather than tall (as is the aquarium) and unholy heavy. The aquarium is in the bedroom we use as an office. It replaces a gastly piece of furniture and the six drawers make it very functional to store things in. I looked at in person, and on line, every imaginable aquarium stand. This dresser is made of much more solid construction than the offical furniture type stands I looked at.
neilanh, thank you for the birthday greetings. I always enjoy my birthdays and haven't hit one of those milestone ones that bothered me yet - even the big 50 last year.
pitt420dude, I kept seeing the vote thing. I guess this helps bring the site to the top of Google searches??? Of course I'll be happy to vote. Glad to know the Prime was a good choice. The fish lady recommended it (the seller of the tank).
marchmaxima, come now! You too can keep a tarantula
. What else are you going to do with an empty 10 gallon tank??!! You have to work pretty hard to have something go wrong with them unless you spring for a tiny "sling" (baby).
I may have forgotten to mention when I put my fingers on the keyboard, I babble - sorry! Thanks again everyone. I'm on vacation this week and will prowl the threads to up my aquarium/fish keeping IQ. Debbie
