Haha thank you. Its not as much money if you shop correctly! I know where you can get some good lights for super super cheap. And there are some good alternatives to co2. I dont like that yeast stuff (used to do it.... really messy) but you can do some cool stuff with a paintball tank. And if you buy plants from hobbiest you can get a lot for $15
Well my Paintball co2 is a little nicer than a DIY one. Mine has an electric solenoid that turns off the co2 when I unplug it. I dont like suffocating my fish at night. That one is about $100. But you can make one with a paintball regulator and any paintball tank for about.... $50 bucks all together?
Any person selling plant packages on Plantedtank.net is always going to give generous amounts. I got ALL my plants from there for about $40. And I have like 20 different plants in there
Alright folks! Hit my first snag on a new tank. I have a slight Bacterial Bloom. I Think it happened because I gassed my fish to death by accident. So when I woke up a lost about.... 6 fish. For how long they were in there, that could have caused enough bacteria to act out! Anyway I took the fish out asap and the best thing to do is wait it out! I might do a water change tomorrow.
On the good side! My RO system came in today! Now I dont have to drive to my lfs to get pure water. I can get 5 Gallons in about 1 hour and a half. Woot! I'll post pics when I can
