I think I MAY spend $50/month on my 125 to keep it going. That's between salt use, todo cartridges over 6-9 months, food, and electricity. It's fairly cheap once up and running. It's the constant buying of fancy new fish and better equipment that's expensive
That is great to know. I was a little concerned with the cost. I found a 120 gallon with everything i'll need to start (heater, sump tank, filter, lights) for $400 on craigslist. But not sure if i want to have that big of a tank. A LFS
put a start up kit together which would be a 55 gallon with everything I need for $350. Not sure what to do.
Not really wanting to use a sump tank. If I ran a canister filter and a HOB
filter would that be okay????
