20 gallon tank kit
 
Could you guys recommend me a 20 gallon tank kit with a fairly low price and a pretty good quality overall?



Specify full brand name please and a link would help a lot.

I would suggest just hitting up the local classifieds for a tank that small... Usually someone is trying to get rid of theirs... You should be abel to set it up for very cheap...

I wish you lived near me I have an entire Waterhome 20 Gal starter kit that I would get rid of for very cheap. Barely been used.

Most lfs should have deals with starter kits. I picked mine up for $119.00 CDN

Be careful of buying any kind of boxed kit from a retail store. I have worked for several pet supply companies and generally pre-made kids are made just to be inexpensive. Many would agree that a 20 gallon filter is too small for a 20 gallon tank and it is usually worth it to go bigger with filtration anyways. Also, a lot of the filters put into kits are the older versions of the same filter that you would find on the shelf. I am not completely putting down store kits, they are often a great way to get started. But you will find yourself wanting to upgrade equipment relatively soon. I agree that checking online for someone's used equipment is often a better deal. Research the individual equipment before you go to buy though.
