cost 60$ more then the whole tank did. A criminal price if you ask me.
I have considered that, and your right,the $ of the upgrade is unbelievable.However, it is not the money that prevents me, it is the heat that causes me to have temp issues with my tanks, this tank will be in my bedroom , I also have open windows in my house 4 month a year, temps in daytime reach near 78/80, my Nova T5 lights on my 37 are a slight issue( have them raised off by about an half inch), can't imagine what metal halide would be like, and a fan or chiller might present a noise problem for a BR tank. I am sure my wife would be happy with some Zoa's, polyps ,dusters and inverts.she is fascinated with our emerald crab, I could probably buy her her own 3 gal
Pico with a crab and she would be thrilled.:p
Probably a couple months off now from that purchase, the Visa bill came in and all of my aquarium hobby purchases for Sept on there, not pretty, kind of went overboard last month
Better chill out for a short while.
