I have some money no so i might be albe to get a 20 to 35 gallon Mabye used tank and have money left over for a filter. Then i can run it while i save money for lights ect. So anyways ill tell ya what i get because it'll be fw for a while.
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.
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?
