Budget 75 gallon low tech planted tank journal
Alright. It is finally time to start my 75 gallon low tech low light peaceful community densely planted aquarium.(What a mouth full)!
And it's all on a budget of 500 dollars.
So far I only have my stand, but I will soon start adding more and more to it until it is complete.
As for equipment, I will have:
1. Polar aurora 4 stage 525 GPH canister filter with built it 5 watt UV sterilizer.(and replacement media) $90.63
2. Boxtech submersible 300 watt heater with guard. $32.99
3. Aquaeffects model 2.(It would be wiser to go with the 48" nicrew light, but this one has sound effects so.....) $93.97
4. Segarty 6 in 1 aquascape tool set. $29.99
All this costs about $250 on amazon.
The nicrew LED is half the price as the aquaeffects, but also half as awesome. The aquaeffects has a built in dimmer, timer, 5+ different light and sound modes, etc.
The stand was on sale for $160. It is made of particle board so I would go with higher quality if possible, but that would be far more expensive.
