Let's assume you have no more than $200 to spend at that Amazon place, and you want to get as close as possible to one or more complete tank setups.

What would you buy, and why? What would you stock in it once it was done?

Well I've always wanted a ZeroEdge tank ...but you may need more than $200 and its not on amazon. But it's definitely worth looking at

That Fluval Edge 12 gallon looks way better! I'm not bias or anything either, I just think who never owns the Fluval Edge 12 gallon or 6 gallon made the right choice.

Right? Shift, you agree with me, the Edge is where it's at.
