If you don't mind getting a bigger tank so you can have more fish in there, and if you don't mind getting a used tank, Craigslist is great if you be patient and wait for a really good deal. You can find 29 or even 40 gallons for 75 bucks or so that come with almost everything.
Good luck with everything!
i found a 30 gallon (with hood, fliter, heater, gravel, net, thermometer and a few decorations) for $50 on there last august. buying new, the heater alone probably would have cost that much. also, you can have some varieties of community fish in your sorority, ours has a molly, three platies, two ADF's and three mystery snails along with the girls.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.
