We've got water!

... in the quarantine tank. While I wait for contractors to finish renovating the home office so that I can install the new display tank, I've set up and began cycling the quarantine tank in the laundry room. I'm using a 40 gallon breeder tank, with a Penn Plax Cascade 600 Internal Filter for biological filtration and water movement (it's got a nice spraybar that fits perfectly across the top of one side of the tank). I'll be cycling the tank without a fish (since there's no way I'm putting any damsels in my display tank), and will keep the first fish I buy here for a good long while (where my 3-year-old daughter can easily see it) until the display tank is installed, cycled and cured.
