Everyone knows that tanks can be expensive to set up and to buy in the first place, but i've never seen anything about how much it costs to run one. I'm not very electrically minded but i wouldn't have thought that they burn too much electricity, especially in the warmer months whan the heaters don't heve to run as much.
I only ask as my housemate has been complaining that i should pay mor eof the leccy bill as we have 4 tanks running at the mo. They have a 150w, a 200w a 10w an a 35w heaters, a fluval 1, 2+, 4+ and an eheim professional 1 filters as well as an 8w, 30w, 50w and 60w of lights, that run for 5hrs, 5,hrs 7hrs and 5hrs respectively. Is this gonna be excessive in leccy consumption
