I thought I'd warn you. I'm venting here, so don't feel obligated to read.
Okay, I filled up my 55 gallon yesterday, got some amazon sword plants to start my new planted tank with and if you remember, there was a bow in the tank... Well, I measured the bow after I filled it with water, and it was over a 1/2 inch which freaked me out. I stayed with the tank (while watching all the election stuff) and finally around 2 AM I decided to take out the water. My gut feeling just said that it wouldn't be safe. ON TOP OF THAT, the lighting I ordered over 2 weeks ago hasn't arrived yet. It was suppose to come in last wednesday. Over the weekend, the guy tried to file a claim that I didn't pay, and I replied (to ebay) with all my info and receipt # (because I sent a MO
) and I contacted the guy directly and asked why he'd file that claim and I attached all the e-mails I kept which had him saying he had received the money and when I'd get the lights, etc... I am so frustrated. The claim was dropped and I was told the lights were in the mail, but I still haven't gotten them and it totally sucks. Now I'm stuck with a tank I can't use, a stand I don't have a working tank for, a filter, heater, and no lighting, plus plants that need lighting and a big tank. Oh and two fish which are gonna need this big tank sometime before x-mas. *BIG SIGH!*
On the plus side, the guy I am dating is totally supportive and stayed up with me last night and helped me take down the tank. He suggested buying me a tank himself, but I don't want him to spend that much money on me. Such a sweetie
