so what i do have is just about every thing to start up an african tank Click here to enlarge that way its not going to bust the bank to much and they can handle a bit of heat during this summer. so heres a breakdown on what equipment this setup is containing

SUBSTRATE - 60kgs micro crushed coral sand + 20kgs seachem pearly shore's
HARDSCAPE - 110kgs A-grade Texas Holey Rock - life like Plastic plants

90kgs of texas rock in just those 3 peices, thanks craig for the awesome deal on it and the fx5
