It varies.. what system are you looking at, is it on sale, where are you buying it from, is it new, is it used. A lot goes into price.

The cheapest 5 gal I've seen was at walmart.. they have a sale going on for 20something bucks

You can get a marineland hex 5 for 40 bucks at petsmart sometimes. Or you can get a 5 gallon kit at walmart for 30 bucks or so. Adding a heater would be maybe 15 more dollars to the sets. I'd recommend the one from walmart. The hex is nice looking but it's kind of a nightmare to maintain and it doesn't have as much surface area as a rectangular tank, or bottom area for exploration.

You can easily craigslist a full 5g setup for $20. That will include gravel, food, a heater and other stuff not included in kits you see at the store.

Small tanks are hard to comeby on craigslist... at least in my area. I've only ever seen 20 gals or larger.. with the occasional 10 gal. It depends on what is in your area.
