Funny thing is, a QT tank never crossed my mind, until reading through the numerous threads here on AA. I will most likely hold off on the 10g until after my 36g is fully cycled though. I'm going pretty broke anyways with all the upgrades haha. But, I did find an AquaClear 50 for $25.52 on Amazon, including shipping! Or I could get the 70 for $10 more, but I feel that may be overdoing it. Nonetheless, pretty sweet deal, if I say so myself.

That is online!! Lol. Shipping from America IME is $20-$40 or more depending what it is. I usually find bargains on eBay. Some people must ship in whole cartons of the stuff then sell it on. I'm still looking at filters. Going to see if I can find me a bargain!

WHAAAT!?!? That's outrageous. Not to rub it in or anything, but I'm getting a 500mL bottle of Prime for just under $13. If I lived out by you, I'd probably not get into this hobby for fear of going broke!

That's so weird because I order flea and tick meds for my dogs and they get shipped cheaper from Australia than from anywhere here. Go figure. Hey Mumma, maybe you could start importing on a large scale for yourself and other hobbyists to get cheaper stuff, haha. Maybe it could pay for your fish stuff.
