I suggest buying your equipment, at least the tank second hand from another person. Usually people are just getting rid of it and will part with their fish tanks for REAL cheap.

Moved to Equipment Questions.

I second the second-hand idea: I got my 80 gallon, complete with stand, canopy, 2 tube lights, an Eheim canister, heater, aquarium vaccuum cleaner, 5 bags of gravel, plants, fish, meds and a whole box of random shiz for 90 bucks


It's really worth the effort (and patience......) scanning the classifieds and the internet for a while

... to find the best prices you CANNOT be an impulse buyer, take a look around and do some browsing and checking out if you want to ensure the best prices

MAD_Piranha......i don't have any specific question, just amazed by your setup and wonderin how anyone would clean anything that has 40 piranhas in it.

I got myself a Want Ad last night, and here's what I found.
170 gal $320 B/O (not sure about this one, but i believe it's just the tank with a reptile cover)
72" x 20" x 24" (comes out to 150 gal) with hoods and 4 lights for $200

those seem to be the 2 good deals on there. i'm gonna keep on lookin, but i was just wonderin how those prices are for those tanks. they got some other ones in there too, but they're all like $600 and up.
