I'm going to be going off to college this fall, and the college I might be going to allows their residents to have 10 gallon fish tanks!
Here's my plan: I plan to get a 10 gallon tank kit (with filter, hood, etc) and divide it with one of those mesh dividers that I can either make or buy at Petsmart. I'm going to get a different filter, probably an Aquaclear or something adjustable. I'm going to use plain colored gravel as the substrate, and get a few live plants. I need to get the light bulbs too, but Petsmart has them for $5 each, so I think I'll be okay in that department. I need a few more hiding spaces and a floating betta log for my female betta, since I'm sure she'd love one.
I've already counted up about how much money everything will cost, and it's wayyyy too much! It'll be over $100 to buy everything I want from Petsmart or my LFS.
So, I'm turning to you guys.
If you have anything on the following list that you would be willing to sell or are looking to get rid of, please contact me! I live in southern NJ, so if you're nearby, I could come pick it up rather than have it shipped. Much cheaper that way. :)
Okay, I need the following:
10 gallon tank with hood (Not LED lighting)
Live Plants (Beginner, low maintenance, really want anubias, hornwort, java fern, and moss balls, but others will do)
Adjustable filter (Brand doesn't matter much, as long as I can adjust the flow to keep my fish from getting pushed around)
6500k bulbs (20 watts total)
Any decorations no longer being used
If you guys can help me out at all, it'll be much appreciated! I'm really just hoping I can get better quality stuff for cheaper than I can in the store. :( I'm sure everything has been really well cared for, since I'm asking you guys and you wouldn't be on the forum if you didn't love your fish and want to care for them properly.
Let me know if you have any of the things on my list, and let me know how much you want for them! It would be nice if you could also tell me the shipping costs from you to me. Thank you very much!
