GOOD for you!!!

Got mine yesterday & set it up today - I LIKE it!!! Came with an Aqua-Tech filter & had to baffle it, but other than that it's good to go!

Will get pics on today or tomorrow for all to admire - LOL!!!!

As far as cleaning acrylic, get an acrylic scrubber pad - WELL worth the $$$, IMO. OR you can use a micro-fiber cloth - just do NOT use paper towel!

Congratulations on your new tank! I'd love to see it once it's set up. I'm excited to get mine. Can paper towel scratch acrylic? My current 1 gallon tank is acrylic and it's all scratched up but I thought it was from the gravel. For that tank what heater wattage is needed? 25? 50?

Do fully set up tanks, filter, lights, heater, normally use up a lot of electricity?

Yes, paper towel scratches acrylic.

I use a 25 watt heater in 5 gal. tanks & it's all good.

Don't know about the electricity cost - we have so many tanks, I'm pretty sure one more isn't going to make any difference! :)

I don't know if this is just co-incidence or not but after setting up 2 x 5 gallon tanks and one 20 gallon tank each with heaters and filters my gas/water/hydro went up 25%.
Having said that, our window a/c was on daily too.

At my Petsmart, they're selling a glass cleaner pad for 75, and the acrylic for 62. I bought a glass cleaner (all mine are glass), because seriously? They were down from $5. Yes, please!

Sorry, had to add to that. :D
