Your not going to stay under $50, unless you want no plants and gravel :( Just a cheap tank and heater alone will cost you $47

Don't forget a bucket, net, gravel vacuum, power strip, towels, & measuring spoons.

Most people have towels and measuring spoons.. I don't differentiate between human towels and fish towels (or dog towels much to my mother's dismay LOL).

You can get a cheap bucket by getting a smallish plastic trash can. IME buckets are more expensive for less gallons than a trashcan. I bought an 8 gallon trash can from Wally world for like $6 or something were a 5 gallon bucket was like $9.

Also OP have you checked craigslist, yardsales, flea markets, thriftstores and good wills... you might be able to find a cheap tank WITH accessories.
