Popped into town today and bought 2 more bags of gravel, net, thermometer and my first tub of fish food from an Aquatic shop in Poole town centre. The we trundled off to 'Pet's At Home' store at Fleetsbridge and where I got a tank cleaner and a book called "The Aquarium Fish Handbook". I also got some fetching stationary to keep a record of the fish I want and any other information I may want to record.
I washed 1 bag of gravel and arranged it into the tank, the placed the thermometer onto the side of the tank in it's correct posistion. It seems not to work.
