One of the things I failed to look into when I first started was the size of my place, Roka. Unfortunately, I live in an apartment with limited space. I have 5 and 2-gallon buckets for 25% and 10% PWC
respectively, but I am so limited in space, that keeping a 5 gallon bucket of mixed water in my place is just not reasonable space-wise. I keep the buckets with lids stashed in my car trunk.
I know, this is no hobby for the short of cash, but I do have to think frugally and I think it can be done on a budget. Why should the fiscally powerful be the only ones to enjoy this hobby?
Your advice is always appreciated, not to mention spot on, but I really am limited in a couple of ways in my tiny apartment. I think the water from the LFS
will have to be my option for now.
Incidentally, I inted to move next January! So keep an eye open for my posts about how to move a working aquarium!!!
