The cost of living in Paradise

Rant.....I just bought a pail of salt...200g and it cost me $109.00. Fifty bucks for the salt and $59.00 shipping. LOL I use to worry and get mad at the cost of shipping, but that only brings up my blood pressure. LOL
The old saying here is "If you want to live in paradise you have to pay for it"....Hahahahaha

Lol true to that. I need over a grand to get my next tank upgrade and filter unless someone is nice enough to donate me a 150gallon tank for my clown loaches lol.

Craigslist will lower that price significantly. I set tanks on there all the time and also filters and what not.

I live in London and it's just not worth buying salt over the net!!! I pay £22 for 4 kg of good quality salt!! That's like $32 for 4 kg!!!!!! I do a 10% pwc per week on a 46 uk gallon tank at a cost of £40 ($55) per month.. How can they charge so much in this country??? Any way of making it my self lol jk

Salt is high over there! Stay diligent on Craigslist, that's where I got my tank. There are 150 gallon tanks on there for a few hundred bucks all the time, that is with the stand too.
