I agree that it can be expensive, but no more expensive than any other full tank set up. Total, mine was a little over $70.00 but I got the tank on sale. If I were you, I'd go with something a little bigger than 10 gallons. I was hoping for a 15, but 14 is pretty darn close. :D You can have more fish, better decorations and over all, it's worth the extra 5 or 10 dollars initially. Plus you have more options all across the board between the amount of fish, and the type of fish. But one thing thats great about sororities compared to regular fish tanks is that you only have one breed of fish (one type of food) and yet they are all different colors. Then the fishies' personalties are all different, making watching more fun. Also they swim all over the tank, not just top middle or bottom. :D It's awesome!!! So I would SOO go for it!!!
When life throws you lemons throw them back!
I am proud to say I own one fish! He lives in a 14 gallon jungle all to himself PAXTON is my double tail halfmoon featured in my icon :)
