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.

Thanks!

You should first check the listings on ur local advertisement website such as Craglist. Sometimes u find extraordinary deals, like fully equipped tanks for super cheap.
I got all my tanks(3) this way ;)
