Well in my world a book is as important as fish stuff. i love to read, that too is an expensive habit to have. I pay $10 for a book and it's read in 3 hours or less. At least the fish are lasting.

Well you should be set in a week or two for cycling. Thats not soo bad. I'm a impatient person too, I have to wait til wednesday for my new biocube and the wait is killing me.

**Save the $15.

I'm the same way. I get all excited when ups comes cause theres usually a fish related item to play with. lol

Once the setup costs are covered it will just be water, fish and salt.

Wait for the whole kit then. If you spend $25 on amazon its usually free shipping, if its not an outside seller on amazon. I buy alot of stuff there but I have prime membership so its always free shipping for me.
