It bites doesn't it? The 2 fish that I've wanted FOREVER are a Black ghost knife and a shoal of Clown loaches. Sadly I need a 125g+ tank to keep either of those.

Have you thought about saving up to do a 55g cichlid tank? You can easily do 3 schools of 5 cichlids in a tank that size. Mbunas are by far my fav

Ahh yeah, It took about $250 for the tank, all the equipment, and hardscape supplies for my cichlid tank. Just keep an eye on craigslist. You can find deals there.

I am using 2 Marineland Penguin Power Filter - 350B

For a heater I am using Eheim Jager TruTemp Submersible Heater - 200 W

For hardscape I am using white silica sand that cost me about $10 and about 50 lbs of lace rock for caves for my mbunas.
