Cheapest place to buy a 5gal tank?
I'm trying to buy a 5 gallon tank preferably glass.
Everywhere I look they only sell them as part of a kit.
Where is a good place online (or near Evanston, Il) where I could buy one?
If I have to buy a kit which one is the best for my money?
I'm looking to spend less than $75 on my whole setup including substrate and shrimp. Is this even possible?
I'm basically looking for the cheapest planted desktop type setup I can make. I'd be willing to go a little smaller to 3 gallons minimum. Between shrimp, plants, black sand or gravel, and other misc things the tank is way more than I thought it would be. I don't want to waste money on a crappy filter or one that requires expensive cartridges though. I can make my own filter inserts if necessary.
