Well, I went to a garage sale and picked up a 36 gallon setup for $105, so
that's a 150 watt heater, a penguin 350 power filter, a gentle powerhead, and lights/hood/tank/stand. (and a red sea nano HOB for an extra $5) All for $105. Wow. So, I cracked it when I was washing it (previously used) and I was pretty bummed.
I ended up going to the LFS and buying silicone as it wasn't a HUGE crack. It sits in my room, drying, and I am thinking up ideas for a scape/theme. I am considering a rainforest kinda thing, an iwagumi, a nature aquarium and a regular ol' planted tank. If anyone has their ideas please share them!
