I'm not sure. Maybe 15 dollars? But I just bought the glass top. My approach at this is item by item. I choose an item to save for, get it, and then choose another item. If I tried to save up enough money to get it all at once, I'd give up.

Sounds good. You have a better approach than me. I'm so impatient I just spend spend spend until I'm in debt with my Mom. In fact, I'm in pretty deep debt now because of my new 30 gallon DX Good luck with saving!

Thanks! I talked my mom into paying for my 29 gallon freshwater, and me and my dad did our 75 gallon together, so he paid for it, but I'm on my own for everything else. do you wanna see pics of my 29 gallon? I can get pics of the 75 tomorrow.

Lets take off sw master test kit, i assume you have a fw kit and it works for sw too. Just email API asking for a new card/color chart

To save money on sand, but PFS.

Did you have rock, refractometer, or thermometer on there?

And there are certain things you just can buy last. Like the reef master test kit

Oh yes I'd love to see some pics! Is it planted?

+1 to this. Except you can get a hydrometer instead of a refractometer. That's what I use and they're much cheaper, just not as accurate.

I wanted finer sand. That's why I put the Oolite sand on the list. And I already have a refractometer, and okay about the test kit.

And the tank has a few java ferns, which are a bit wilted after we moved this last weekend. And one of my cories is MIA... I hope he shows up... DX

That's a gorgeous tank! Pretty snail too. Is it a gold inca snail?

And now the price list is even higher. Maybe your parents will help out if you beg. That's my trick

Nope, they're apple snails. There are two of them. They were the only two that made it from a clutch that my first apple snail laid.

And I try begging. My mom just gets annoyed. -_-"
