2006: How much have you spend on your aquarium so far?
I think I have reached 30000-40000 pesos this year.:blueshake: That is equivalent to 600-800 US dollars.:blink:
The joys of fishkeeping.:crazy:
Saltwater can be counted into your bills!!!:checkedout:
Since I bought my 125 gallon tank, stand, lights, and some discus to put in there, I spent over $2000.00 (USD). My other tanks, probably another $200. I would have spent allot more, but thanks to Craiglists, I got a couple of freebees.
I think I would pass out if I added all it all up. LOL :shock: I have a feeling this year will be more expensive as we are planning a saltwater reef tank :)
Oooh..Now I fear this year is going to be more expensive.:blueshake: If I see a batch of Galaxy Rasboras in my lfs' tank, I'd go crazy and buy a new tank(preferably 30-40 gallons).:crazy: Same goes with altums if I encounter them on my summer vacation on May.:mrgreen:
Still have to wait for my order of gold rams, Apistogramma agassizi and Apistogramma borelli.:checkedout:
Buying a tank is so expensive.:shake: Filter, heater, plants(if my friend won't give me more :checkedout: ) and gravel.:sob:
well we only have a small 20 gallon, so the cost is not going to be that much. its probably like 200 at the most.
Mel, what about the saltwater?:mrgreen:
I'll edit my first post to include the saltwater.:mrgreen:
135 gallon tank
Wet/dry trickle filter with sump
Metal hallide lights
Heater and Chiller
Monitoring system with software
Luckily, I already bought an RO/DI filter last year and I recently picked up a 55 gallon food grade container for water storage (FREE from Craigslist). Now if only someone would give the above list for free, I'ld be stoked.
My latest addition a mere 125g tank set me back a solid $3500 includes plants, lighting, filtration, driftwood, rockwork, and NO fish. Those set me back another $800-900. Does anyone know how many Snickers' bars that would buy?
