Mine costs $10 for rocks and $20 for silk plants. Then $20 for water conditioner per year, $10 on salts, $10 on pellets, $25 on frozen foods, and we'll say $30 on other meds. So that's... $130ish on my 5 boys. Plus $45 for each tank/filter/heater.
Well I spent $120 just on lights... I wanted special LEDs.
The moss balls were $5-$10.
Anubias plants were $5.
Ceramic caves were $10 each.
Christmas moss was $10 for a clump.
Seachem plant growing substrate was $25.
Fish were $7 each.
NLF Small Fish Food was about $7.
Frozen Bloodworms were $5.
API Freshwater Master Test Kit was $35.
IALs were $10.
Seachem Fertilizer $15.
I already had the tank, heater, and filter.
So it is just about what you want really. Some people spend $50+ on just the fish alone. Hence why I said $100 as the base price. That was right about what you spent! Since I consider my fish tank an investment in my mental health, $200+ is a small price to pay
