I spent somewhere in that range, maybe a touch higher getting my tank ready for mt Betta. At least I already HAD the tank and filter, but I needed to get: Thermometer, Heater, additional gravel, Flourescent light, new oranament, Betta food, Live plants, driftwood. Plus the added bonus of needing to purchase two Assassin Snails in order to combat my Pond Snails.
Would I do it all again? Absolutely. Was well worth the $$$ spent on both tanks. The next major tank related purchase will be an aquarium stand for a 30 gallon tank so I can re-claim my kitchen table, and stop one of the cats from getting up on said kitchen table to watch the fish. I plan to set it up in the bedroom close to the window.
