Would you invest in the 20gals or just stick with established 10gals? It's really tempting me. Thinking logically and realistically...what would you do?
That's a tough one! Aqueon Hoods with flourescent lights for 20gallons are like $40, a filter would be $25 and youd need a 100-150w heater, at minimum another $20. So like $100+ total. I think at that point itd still cost less to buy the kits for them off sale. I'd rather stay with an established 10g and save the money
