Im going to pick up a 30 gallob used tank right now and will have money left over for some stuff to. Ill tell you what i get when i come back.

I think you should start off with a fish only, something simple like a powerfilter and a few powerheads, then when you get some dough buy the good filtration and lighting.

I too think you could get away with a fish only tank for right now. As long as the filter is good enough. There is no use wasting your money buying freshwater stuff for it just to turn it in(or whatever you do) for saltwater stuff.

Yay i just got it and its in great condition. It was only like 25 bucks to. What i meant was me buying a heater a filter (aqau clear(fuge) ) and maby some gravle them i could keep fish in it and all i could use every thing that i bought for sw too. Any ways i think im going to get a 175 or 250 mh.

What da ya think?

Oh and thanks for the tip trreherd i probably will do a fowlr until i get my light.

Every one keeps telling me to get t5's so would 1 or 2 of these work?

trreherd 02-08-2007 04:51 PM

175 or a 250 watt mh would be awsome! I would get one of the mh retros from hellolights for reel cheap, and mike aproves of them. I know you want to do a freshwater but think, all you need to keep some awsome saltwater fish are some salt($13) hydrometer($7)Test kit(nitrate,ph is all you need) and you would be enjoying some awsome saltywater fish. You dont even need to do a fowl, you can do a fish only. With a white or black gravel bottom and a few fake ornements a fish only is not bad for a buget. But this all depends on how much money you have rite now. Fi you only have like 50 bucks then i would go fresh.
Ps did the tank come with a hood and lighting?

trreherd 02-08-2007 04:52 PM

oh and try to get a pick of the tank so we can see what you got.
