The score at petsmart & home depot

Last night I went out to get some more rocks and substrate... Petsmart had one bag of flourite left,but it had a tear and about 15% of it had spilled out. They told me if I bought some fish, they'd give me the flourite for 50% off. So, I got 3 albino cory cats and a 90% bag of flourite for $20.

Went to lowes to look for random rock and found nothing.. they only had cut / shapped rock for pavers, etc.. Went to home depot and in the back they had a pile of broken stone siding.. the sign said 9.99/bag.. there seemingly was no bags, so i wrote down the SKU and loaded up about 10 rocks in my cart, and went to the CS counter, the night manager said buy anything and you can have them free.. so I got a bottle of gatoraid for $1.99..

Under $25.. 3 fish.. 20lb of flourite, and 10 nice sized rocks to make a little rock feature out of... not too bad

it's a 75gal tank.. been setup for about 18 months. I yanked out a ton of overgrowth Saturday and added some different fish. It's been neglected for a while.

I have a 65w X 4 light fixture and one of the ballasts appear to be burnt out :/
