Confused about getting an aquarium.
I'm a beginner with fish and aquariums. I went to an aquarium center in Wigan where I now live, and got some advice but I'm confused. The shop owner told me, that although it is good for people on a budget, to forget buying one of those cheap start-up kits with everything all-in because if something brakes (like the light), there's a chance that I won't be able to get the parts for it.
He suggests buying a tank and buy everything else (i.e., filter, light, heater, etc) separately. It would cost more money to do that but if something brakes at least it can be replaced.
But I'm on a budget of about £80 and I've seen the start-up kits for about £50 at The Range.
I've looked for second-hand tanks but I have yet to find one where I live (I do not own a car). I'm just eager to get a fish tank.
