I found a 29g tank with hood and light for 58.00 at petsmart. That seems like the best deal so far..
Here's some of the prices I found.... And why I think that deal might be the best....
The tank in sale at petco: $29.00
A glass hood: $20.00
A T5/T8 bulb & fixture ( I can't remember): $39.00
fixture & hood: $60.00
Hood & Tube light: $41.99
I will also need a new heater: $25.00
I will be looking online for equipment, but not the main parts of the tank... What do you guys think, it seems no matter how you pair these items to where I have a tank, hood, and light, that its not cheaper than $58.00
Ps I really need the hood due to the weather in Missouri and how fast the water evaporates, also I have a dog, so hair is in the air....
