Just wanted to share a few pics! I am finally not asking for help with an ID of something in them, so it's progress I think!
Standard 10 gallon All Glass tank, and the Hood that came with it 24.99
2 10w Compact flourescent bulbs 4.22 each
Cascade 80 HOB filter 16.00
heater from old tank
tiny pebble type gravel and schultz Aquatic plant soil mixture along the back of tank (behind rocks and driftwood) already had on hand
black coated gravel in front of the wood and rocks 3.99
driftwood and plants from previous 6.6 gallon acrylic tank
So less than 60.00 which is a big change from my 55 gallon moneypit! lol.
I made the switch yesterday, so the plants need a bit of growing out of course, but my daughter is tickled pink with it
(it's really "her" tank, I just took over the planting etc.) I have my RCS and Dwarf Crays in there until I can set up a tank just for them!
Cray lounging around...
