You can also take some of her gravel if she'll let you(don't let it dry out), stick it in some pantyhose, and dangle it in your tank (with heater and filter running). Great way to help boost the cycle, just start it by putting a few flakes of food in.

If you have to drive for an hour to get a decently priced kit you may as well order it online.

This is the song that never ends...

You should look on craigslist for cheap aquarium equipment- there's always lots of stuff for sale. Aquabid.com is great for buying live plants and stuff, usually you can get packages that end up being really cheap. In general the internet is much cheaper than your LFS- so you might be able to avoid any trips to the store until your tank is already set up and cycled.

drfostersmith.com is awesome. My liquid test kit was less than $20 not to mention the shipping is always super quick. I've priced a lot of things between Dr Fosters and my lfs and the price differance is crazy. My canister filter was $120 on the web site and at the stores close to me it was between $220-340! So even with the $10 shipping, I still saved a bunch.

"Cycling best friend is a good liquid regeant test kit, and a good barber to fix your hair after you pulled half of it out."
