I dont even want to know what I spent on my fish stuff.
I get the fish first and then slowly add other stuff, like heaters, decorations, sand, ect.
I don't do filters, so I saved some $$ in that dept and all the heaters came off ebay which also saved $$
3 gallon petco pet keeper X4 = 50
20 gallon - $20
10 Gallon X 2 - $15
100 watt heater $15
25 watt heater X 5 - $75
50 watt heater x2 - $30
god only knows how much I spent in decoratio0ns, which is probably what cost the most. My only option is petco or ebay. I like the asian sellers that have FREE shipping, otherwise i got hosed on shipping to alaska. Or Amazon if they have free shipping.
22 fish, most were saved from the evils of walmart but the HM's were from petco.
ooh, I also have a 5 gallon marineland hex which is currently empty. THAT was $65
However, once you have everything set up, monthly I only need conditioner or the occasional bottle of food or medicine. Much cheaper then the high matience chinchilla. She costs about $40 a week.
