Just my input here, you can pick up a cheap more suitable tank from eBay even though it may be 2nd hand, it will be better than anything you could buy from P@H. Is there any other local fish stores near by? If so use them instead of P@H as there advice and customer service is that of a 3 year old. Although you can't believe everything a fish shop employee tells you, at the end of the day its about sales and without them selling you fish they wouldn't have a job but you can tell the ones with no clue or morals about the welfare of the fish a mile off. (99% of P@H employee's)
Here at least you will receive nice friendly advice about keeping fish correctly, without being talked down to. Let me tell you there must be thousands over the years that have been in the same boat as yourself over the wrong advice P@H have given you.
Most important piece of advice about fish keeping can be found here its all about looking after the bio side of things and letting the fish look after themselves ;) http://www.fishkeeping.co.uk/articles ... hless-cycling-article.htm
Give the articles section a look too, there's tons of information there :)
Oh BTW welcome to FK :) More people with advice will be along soon!
EDIT: The article in the link has instructions for before adding fish, so don't actually add liquid ammonia to the tank, just read the article to learn about the cycle itself :)
