I'm with you though I want more fish too sometimes i look at my tank and see 120 gallons of open space and have to look for the fish on occasion. I'm going to follow the general consensus of the members and take my time and enjoy.

Oh most definitely though. I am taking my time, I want to do this right. I do think that the tank can handle another addition at this point though because it is doing so well. You should see, Im neurotic. I check my params everyday. The boss keeps saying that she has lost me to the tank. I need to get myself a refractometer though, I dont completely trust the hydrometer.

I don't trust mine either. I started a thread to get some info on it.http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...n-119055.html/. Take the boss out for dinner, I have to do the same, I've been spending oodles of time on the tank myself, it's time for a break (A short one though).

Yes indeed, a short break should suffice....:p The boss has been begging me for a puppy, we are going to check one out today. I told her I will be losing her to the dog and she replied, well, Ive already lost you to the fish tank (that she bought FOR me) so now we're even. Shes a tough one that boss of mine

I have done really well when it comes to money saving. I got a 29g bioCube (comes with biological/chemical/mechanical filter, lights, fans, no need for powerhead as you can direct outgoing water tube upward to create a nice steady current). You just need to do your research. In my case, we got lucky because I found the 29g on drsfostersmith.com for $250. I called up my LFS and they matched it. Its pretty cool. So I got that, I spent a little more on my heater (150w but 100w would be fine), 15lbs of substrate (aragonite), and LR. The LR is where you are going to pay a bit more. Honestly though, if you take a look at the big picture, I havent spent too much and I have such an amazing tank to look at now. Its awesome!

Mine tank was a bit more, but I'll probably get the bioCube for the boss for X-mas.
