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.
