The high range is prob only gonna help you when you get salt in there.

Is that next on your list or a heater?

Hmm it depends on how fast you can get some money together. You need salt, heater, rock and a api test kit. You could prob cycle without the rock I would think. it will take a few weeks to build up bacteria anyways. Perfect world I'd say put it all in to cycle but i wanna see some action. lol

if you buy anything for ammonia I'd get the api single ammonia test. Youll get another set in the api master kit but its gonna be needed at first the most.

Gimme a few days lemme see if i can't find an old heater around. You only have a 10g so it doesnt need to be that big. i wish I had thought to look the other day and saved on shipping. lol i happen to have a bunch of stamps so postage isnt really costing me anything.

How about your parents? They not able to throw you an extra $20 spot or anything? Maybe do some chores that they don't wanna do? We need to get you a job! j/k but it would be easier
