I love teaching my daughter responsibility and having fun while doing it. Recently, we had the chance to go to PetSmart and purchase an API® Perfect Start™ tank, fish and accessories! If you haven't heard of API Fishcare, they have been a leader in the Aquatics industry developing and perfecting products and solutions for indoor aquariums. API’s family of products includes treatments, testing, nutrition, and equipment and pond products. Their products can be found at PetSmart! We were sent to purchase an aquarium! Check out our adventure below.
After visiting two different stores, we finally found what we needed. Lydia chose the 3-gallon aquarium and she picked out her accessories and fish. This tank had everything we needed, except for the decorations and fish.
Lydia had a blast picking out everything that she wanted for her aquarium. The one thing that we loved about this API Aquarium kit, is that it comes with everything we needed such as the water treatment, coupons and more. It also has multi-LED colored lights for added fun! We bought the tap water conditioner and went home and set up our tank. We were told to wait 24 hours to add any fish, as a precaution because tap water will shock fish. This aquarium comes with three packets that you use on day 1, day 14days and day 28 as well. After waiting 24 hours, we headed back to the store and picked out our fish.
Lydia was so excited! She could not make up her mind. At the end of the day, we bought two guppies, a neon and a snail. If you didn't notice, her tank has a princess theme to it. Totally her if you ask me. I let her get whatever she wanted. I love the fact that she has this tank in her bedroom, because it teaches her responsibility. It also gives her a chance to show me she can be independent. She gets up every morning and feeds her fish, she also feeds them before bed. She calls us in there often to check out the light effects in the tank. Overall, I love that API Fishcare offers all of our starter kit needs. They also have a ton of accessories and other products to offer too. Purchase API Fishcare products today! You won't regret it!
