So, I posted a while back about my and my hubbys plans to get a tank. We have the tank now, this one:
(Sorry about the long URL)
We got gravel, decor (silk plants), dechlorifier, medicines (just in case..), water test kit and such, although we're standing completely still when it comes to filters/pumps etc.... So.. Help! Any tips on specific models that have worked for you would be SO appreciated. URLs for specific models in major pet stores such as PetSmart and PetCo would help a lot, too! Any price range is fine, and we'd prefer one that was discreet in appearance.
(Who doesn't, right?
Also, besids a pump/filter.... What more do we need? I get a little confused reading american aquarium-FAQs, when it comes to filtering and pumps and such... In Sweden, where I come from, you need a pump, period. The thing that sucks in water, cleans it, and spits it out again. Do you call that a filter here? Ugh? Darnit...
Sorry for the stupid question, but this confuses me.
Help would be so greatly appreciated!
P.S. We're not getting the fish until we get a filter/pump and let the tank run by itself for a couple of weeks.
P.P.S.... Me and my hubby have been debating the importance of lightning when it comes to our future tank. The tank will be standing in a place that gets a good amount of daylight (Not direct sunlight at all of course), and the fish (Black Moors) would basically have the whole dawn-day-dusk-night cycle. How important is it for us to get lightning for the tank? Thanks again...
