petco sells a 29 gallon complete for $100, which includes thermometer, filter, a little food, dechlorinate, etc etc. i hear that walmart sells a 20-25 gal tank too but i haven't had any personal experience with their aquatics department. what's your budget? look on ebay and craigslist if you have one in your area (www.craigslist.org)

Wal-Mart's 29 gallon kit is $94. Comes with hood, bulbs, heater, Regent Filter, filter cartridge, thermometer, net...and more little things.

Other than that...check your newspaper in the classified ads. I know some people will see tanks for REALLY cheap. Look around, you'll be surprised at some deals you can find.

Does $200 for 55gal with all accessories and a stand sound cheap? I just saw an ad in our LFS.

Sorry for cutting in your thread...

the 55 gallon deal depends on what filter and heater you get with it. My 55 gallon with stand cost me $220 with a penguin biowheel filter and good heater brand new. $200 isn't a bad deal though.
